Yahoo Winners League, 5x5 12-team

(Parenthesis = draft position)

C R. Hernández 15)
1B T. Helton (4)
2B C. Utley (2)
3B Á. Rodríguez (1)
SS R. Furcal (-)
OF C. Beltrán (3)
OF C. Lee (5)
OF B. Wilkerson (17)
Util M. Jacobs (18)

Bn O. Cabrera (20)

Closers
B. Ryan (7)
F. Cordero (9)
J. Valverde (12)
T. Gordon (13)

Starters
J. Schmidt (8)
J. Lackey (10)
K. Escobar (11)
A. Harang (14)
B. Penny (16)
E. Bedard (19)
C. Silva (21)

Already completed a trade, J. Nathan (6) for R. Furcal. I missed out on the top SS talent, so went after closers as trade bait, fortunatly it worked out.

I think I'm strong in all batting cat's, solid in saves, but weak on starting pitching. I obviously missed out on the best pitching talent, but since it's the most volatile position i'm hoping a couple of the players i have might break out, and hopefuly i'll nab a few more F.A.'s who start hot.

Any general comments would be greatly appreciated, aswell as overall feelings on my team, but i do have a few specific questions;

1) Are any of my top 10 picks players i should try to cash in on (ie. too dodgy, overvalued, ect.)

2) I intend to drop cabrera and silva, maybe also bedard and jacobs. Should i, and who for. (see F.A. list below)

3) With my 5 mid-tier high-upside Sp's (schmitd, lackey, escobar, harang, penny) do you think I have the basis of a solid rotation, or should i go after a trade for a top-quality SP. If yes, who/what should I use as trade bait?



F.A.'s

J. Jones
J. Guillen
P. Wilson
R. Baldelli
A. Rios
D. Delluci
R. Sanders
C. Monroe
A. Kearns
J. Burnitz

J, Marquis
R. Lopez
B. Arroyo
C. Lidle
C. Benson
D. Cabrera
J. Washbrun
G. Chacin

Drop OCab and pick up Pr Wilson.

I would also drop Harang for DCab. You may need some rotation help.

Thanks for the help with mine.

I would drop Silva for D.Cab. I'm not crazy about O. Cab either, but not a lot of good FA options. My first inclination would be to look at Baldelli, but the recent news isn't great on his return. Wilson is probably a better bet. O.Cab will still be there if you need him.
