You definately made out in this deal. Howard will have monster year, and Bay is top 20 pick. Think ya took him to the cleaners

How did you pull off that deal? That's ridiculous! Did you rip him off somehow? Anyway, that makes your offense a lot better. Your starting pitching needs work, but your going in the right direction.

great trade, man. If I were you now I would try to get some more starting pitching on board. You have a semi ace in Felix, but he'snot performing so great right now, and although you've got about 4 lesser pitchers which are nicwe to have on a staff, I would look to add a premier ace (Sheets, c-zam, unit, harden, oswalt etc) to anchor your staff. I'd be prepared to give up some hitting for that.

Verlander
Harang

I like your team. If you were going to pickup a SP, I would go with Harang. Also, there are no real good RP left on your FA.

Great sell-high trade--I happen to think Thome and Papelbon will continue to have monster years, but even if they do, you still made out well. If and when Lee bounces back, you're team will be ridiculous.

If you want to pick up an SP, I would consider dropping Swisher to grab Verlander. I'd stay away from Harang.

Team looks great the only real suggesions that I could make to your team is try to get a better 2B in a 10 teamer you should have better. Your pitching is a little on the dangerous side but it will help you compete just dont expect to blow anyone out on a consistent basis with those guys. See you in the playoffs but as in most H2H leauges its all about how well you play the lineups in the finals. Your team is a contender great job with the trade ;-D .

If you get the chance.
