Lacking power, but it looks pretty good.

ty. I realized I was giving up more than I'm getting. I was just trying to help out my OF ... but Utley's just got too much upside.

Interestingly, the other end of that trade responded to me saying he needed to think about it more. I got there in time to cancel it.

Team looks pretty solid, but as cordscords said.. definitely lacking power. I wouldn't do that trade if I were you.

You have enough speed with:

(projected)

Pods-60
Crisp-20
Arod-20
Utley- could reach 20
Jeter- 15-20
Granderson-15

I think you're good on steals. You can still compete with HRs, and RBIs too.. but Utley will be a big part of that. I thing Utley is much more valuable to you then Crawford is with the way your roster is.
You really need a better Util though. Polanco wont hit 10HRs, get you 10 steals, and wont get much on RBIs eaither. The only thing hes good for a .300 avg.

I like your team though. Well drafted. Good job.

ty, both analyses are spot on.

I'm hoping to pull more power out of howard than currently projected from him...

As for Polanco ... I'm just a Polanco homer. That's all there is to it.

You could use some pop in the lineup but its ultra fast, you might get more then 15 out of granderson too hes been running i believe

Update: Just made the following trade (though it has to go through a 2 day waiting period before being enacted):

Utley/Podsednik for M. Ramirez

Thus, my team now:

C - J. Lopez
1B - R. Howard
2B - P. Polanco
3B - A. Rodriguez
SS - D. Jeter
OF - M. Ramirez
OF - C. Crisp
OF - C. Granderson
UT - M. Alou

I lost speed with Pods, but to tell ya the truth I don't think he'll be sensational this year with injury concerns.

I like that offense now better than I did when it was Utley and Pods, I just wonder what the pitching price was to get thome.
