put Jones on the DL and pick up Rodney.

Try to trade Sexson for a starter or closer (since your hitting is very deep)

other than that, your team looks very solid for a rookie..nice job

I say get rid of Cabrera, Swisher and Glavine.

Go ahead and do the deal for Crawford. Pierre shouldn't be a huge dropoff in steals, and will have a better BA. Beltre gives you a backup for Mora, and he may put up decent numbers this season.

With Sexson, you may be able to get a second tier pitcher such as Wood or Beckett. Depends on your trading partner's needs.

Again, that depends on your preferences. I think asking us who you can get is the wrong approach. It all depends on what the owners in your league are like. It's also part of the fantasy learning curve. You're going to make some boneheaded moves.

Hell, I remember when I started in 2003, I traded Johan Santana and Pat Burrell for some scrub like Phil Nevin. But, I learned from it, and so shall you, my friend.

So, my advice would be to check out your team, ID your weaknesses, and then see which owners you match up well with as a trade partner. Then, get to dealing! Trades are part of the fun of fantasy.
