As far as positions goes, I think I'm doing okay. Could use some improvement at 1B, and definately need another Catcher. But what I'm more concerned about is what you believe I need as far as categories goes. Thanks!

Here is our league format:
H2H 12 team nonkeeper - 25 player roster w/ 2 DL.
Pitching: W,L,CG,SV,BB,K,Hld,ERA,WHIP
Batting: R,H,HR,RBI,SB,K,E,AVG,OBP
Pitchers used: SP,SP,RP,RP,P,P,P
27 innings pitched minimum

Here is what my team looks like presently:
C: R. Barajas (Tex - C)
1B: C. Tracy (Ari - 1B,RF)
2B: C. Figgins (LAA - 2B,3B,LF,CF,RF)
3B: A. Ramírez (ChC - 3B)
SS: J. Lugo (TB - SS)
LF: J. Bay (Pit - LF,CF)
CF: G. Sizemore (Cle - CF)
RF: B. Abreu (Phi – RF)
OF: G. Jenkins (Mil - RF)
Util: L. Overbay (Tor - 1B)
Bench: C. Shelton (Det - 1B), M. Kotsay (Oak - CF), M. Ellis (Oak - 2B,SS)

SP: R. Halladay (Tor), J. Patterson (Was)
D. Davis (Mil), B. Zito (Oak), J. Bonderman(Det)
G. Maddux(ChC)

You have five guys (Bay, Sizemore, Lugo, Figgins, Abreu) that will get you PLENTY of stolen bases. See if you can trade one of them (Figgins) for more power, which you could definitely use.

Your pitching is pretty good. Escobar will be valuable for you if he gets it going again in the rotation.

Thanks, rockiesfan, it has been the theme. I need help with my power numbers.

I really want to hold onto Figgins for his ability to play so many positions. Its tough to find a good 2nd baseman also. I have been trying to trade Abreu without success so far. I figure I can put Tracy into RF. I'm looking for one of the great 1st basemen for him... Pujols, Ortiz, Tex or D. Lee. What do you think would be worth me giving up to get one of those?

As for the trade you are considering...To acquire Pujols, Lee, Texeira, or Oritz you are defintely going to have to part with either Abreu or Bay and another player. Keep in mind that in any given draft this year Lee, Ortiz, Abreu, & Bay could go in any order...so I wouldn't throw too much more in. Hopefully the team that has Ortiz or maybe Texeira is in need of some speed and thus you'd be able to put a package together including Abreu.

Overall, I like your team. I like the all around ability that you have in your outfield. I also agree that you could afford to give up some speed for some more pop, but you'll probably get 30+ homers out of Ramirez, Abreu, & Bay. Also, you'll see 20+ from Tracy, Sizemore, Overbay, Jenkins, and Shelton...with the potential for more from each of them. Personally I think Shelton will have a better year than either Overbay or Tracy, so I'd get him in yoru lineup. I like the strikeout totals that you will get out of your pitchers. No real top of the line closers, so I'd watch all closer situations closely and pick up any part time closers that you can in place of one of your middle relievers.

Overall, a good squad...if you have a few minutes I'd like to see what you have to say about my team, thanks: http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... p?t=176444
