I waited too long to get a 1B, but even if I stand pat, I don't think it'll affect my team's overall potential over the long haul.

Anthony Reyes is an intriguing prospect for my team, but I'm pondering whether or not I should wait until I can put Pavano on DL to free up a spot for Reyes.

I would grab Reyes, drop Crain. Then you can DL Pavano, and other good Middle Relief should be available. Did anyone grab Shinju Mori, RP for TB? He's in the saves mix for them.

I agree about Dimitri's little brother... I'm hesitant about dropping Crain for Reyes because I think Crain is an MLB trade away from being a top-notch closer. Since Farnsworth and Crain currently have the same fantasy value more or less, I'll probably pick up Reyes for Farnsworth.

Good team. I would watch Conor Jackson closely. Not really sure what to expect from him. Hearing both sides about him. Some really good others very skeptical. Your outfield has question marks. Gomes really being your best one. I like him a lot and have drafted him in 3 teams but he is a 3rd outfielder. I would keep him and Hermida. Baldelli is a big question mark. Your starting pitching is a little sketchy to me. Felix and Hudson are solid. Ollie and Odalis are risky and baker is a chance. If it pans out you will be a genius but could go the other way. Solid Closers though. As far as the FA's I would watch Church, Barfield, Young, Reyes, and Verlander. All young and one could be this years Felix.

Pitching needs work, but other than that good job for a 13th pick. Like the way you picked up Young and Wright. Maybe early for Nathan, not sure what round that is (3d or 4th?). OR maybe the best pitcher avail. Watch pitching performers during the season and try to trade for some aces.

The places i would concentrate on improving are pitching and outfield. Felix is a great pitcher but i think you need another ace just in ace he gets young pitcher sydrome.


Another area i would look to improve is 1st base jackson is good, but he won't hit for power yet. There must be other better power hitters aviable there (and i don't mean Millar) maybe mike jacobs?

I have to agree about the offense but my bet is that a lot of OF's went early not leaving you with much.

There are so many positions in your league that I bet you can come out ahead.
