Maybe AVG is your biggest shortcoming, with Weeks, Hunter, and Wilson. You could do something to improve in that area. Power and speed shouldn't be problems, and your pitching is decent. You may be a ble to package one of your 4 closers and one of those OFs for an upgrade in the OF.

Try to find some better K guys for your pitching. In H2H you want to rack up as many as possible with each start. Erstad isn't a valuable bench asset in a 12 teamer, see if there's someone better on the WW (Brad Wilkerson??)

Like others have said, I'd think there are much better 1B options on waivers than Erstad. I like Konerko, but it'd be good to have someone that you can either count on for producing during off-days, or a prospect that could pile up some good trade value down the road (Erstad is neither). Likewise, there are probably better bench options than Vidro too (and with Weeks being such a newbie, it'd be nice to have a back-up). Maybe Colorado's L Gonzalez is still available (290+ hitter, a little pop, eligible for all spots but C?

Still looking for help with my draft: http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... p?t=174123

So far, I'm fairly happy with my draft however I was thinking maybe I should drop a bench hitter in order to pick up another SP. I'm wondering what route I should go here. Willingham is off to a hot start but I don't know if it will last. So...should I try to trade him or Martinez and try to get an SP? Would Cabrera be viable trade-bait for a lower-tier SP once Lugo comes off the DL or should I just drop someone like Torii Hunter and head to Waivers?

Some Starters on Waivers include Miguel Batista, Bronson Arroyo, Jeff Suppan and Jason Marquis.

What do you guys suggest?
