What are the league settings and parameters?

Right now I think your biggest concern is your outfield and possibly the questions surrounding Bobby Jenks.

Baldelli and Rowand are both sleeper candidates; I wouldn't feel too comfortable with 2/3 of my outfield being sleepers.

Also, what's the purpose of Dan Wheeler on the roster? He's good, sure, but I think you're safer getting Linebrink as Hoffman's security. That way you do have security for Jenks and Hoffman.

So:
1. Try to acquire a solid outfielder to get rid of the ?s there.
2. Be completely sure of at least 2 closers.

In that case, I'd drop Brian Anderson for an outfielder whom you know is going to get a lot of playing time and put up consistent numbers. I realize you like Anderson as a sleeper, being a Sox fan, but you can still keep an eye on him at the beginning of the season and if he's playing well grab him. Not many people have heard of him, so I think you're better off leaving him off your roster until he's ready to make a sure contribution.

I still recommend Linebrink over Wheeler (they are going to produce similar stats...why not get insurance on Hoffman in the process?).

I have a cute little trick for you. Offer Pujols to the guy who already has A-rod. Sometimes, that will get him so excited, he'll make a foolish trade. You downgrade Pujols to some other high-class 1b guy, while he boosts your OF and/or SP more than you'd expect.
