I think your team is pretty solid. I love the hitting, the only question mark is Bonds. The IF is solid, and the OF is amazing! Sexson is a really good util as well. You also have a stacked bench with Howard, Damon, Guillen, and Polanco is a good backup to Loretta. I would try to package Konerko or Sexson and Beltre for an upgrade at 3rd. I think you should trade away Bonds so Damon can start, and you always have Guillen on the bench. You also should make room for Howard in the starting lineup. Your Sp's are really good, and Escobar is nice to have on your bench. For RP's, you could have one more, but I would wait to see which closer breaks out, then pick him up. Really great team overall ;-D

I agree with using Bonds as bait. My question is C. Ray from the Orioles. What exactly does he bring to the team?

he's the projected starting closer for them right now...

i figure once the season starts and Bonds hits a few dingers his stock will go up! I'll certainly try and trade him before the deadline this season for something. I'm kinda worried at my SS and 3B position right now as Furcal is nursing an injury and Beltre has to prove he can hit once again for power (post steroids :-o ).

Thanks for the suggestions ;-D

anyone else?

I think you're gambeling with Ray but it could pay off for you. As for your infield, you're right. Frucal is a decient guy so long as he can pull that average over 275. And this might be a stupid question but what is WHIR?

I'd look at punting saves all together and filling your RP slots with double-eligible players like Schilling and Sosa since IP is a category. I'd also start Escobar at RP. Definitely look to deal an OF like Bonds or Guillen to upgrade at 2B and 3B. The SP are also too risky for my taste (RJ, Schmidt, Vazquez). I'd look to move one of them for a more solid and reliable starter. ;-D

I too was hoping to grab some swingmen but they all went pretty early in the draft. Are there any other good ones out there after Schilling, Sosa, Heilman, Wood? Unfortunantly Escobar isn't eligible at RP in our league as he only pitched in 9 games there (10 required). Thanks for the thoughts though!

Great team. any team with Damon on the bench is sweet. maybe trade one of those OF's. I think you can sleep a little better now with Beltre's performance on Tuesday against some solid pitching. I think he will bounce back

Please help me out
