I see one glaring weakness in your lineup, SS. You have some good depth at 3B, and I suggest trading Wigginton for a SS. I also have Wigginton on my fantasy team, and he gave my team a nice boost. However, He will probably wear down, and come back down to life soon. So while he's doing well, i suggest shipping him out.

You also are weak in relief, Duaner Sanchez won't earn your team any saves. Weathers is a below-average closer, and Reitsma might be demoted from the closer spot soon, while Chris Ray is on fire. You might want to trade Guillen for a decent closer, or trade Cabrera for a top-notch closer if you don't want to loose Wigginton in the suggestion above.

If you can fix those small spots, you will easily get into the top 3 for your division B-)

Realistically, I'm not sure what you'll get for Wigginton. Visquel should be OK. He'll get on and score some runs, steal some bases (he's got five already). I agree that you should move Wigginton. He's quad-A at best. I'm not sure about your league's scoring though, and if you're counting errors, I'd walk away from him entirely.

I'd definately look at dumping some of your 3B depth for a solid reliever as none of yours will consistently rack up SV's for you over the season.

Now who to start in 2B and C?

Postby icecoldac331 » Tue Apr 25, 2006 4:03 pm

I had a feeling that in the begining of the season that my catchers would get me a HUGE amount of points but to my disapointment, both Posada and Jojima aren't living up to my expectations. They are pretty much doing the same so i dont know who to start. Of course i could draft a free agent, im thinking eiether Damian Miller or Miguel Olivo.

Another of my problems is who to start at 2B: Weeks or Freel. Freel is hot now with his 8 stolen bases and .300 Batting average but i have a feeling Weeks will come back.

Thanks for the advice so far.

I think Catcher could become a problem as well as shortstop. Your starting pitching is really solid with the exception of Blanton who is killing 2 of my teams. If you can afford to take a hit in SP I'd try to ship the Gambler and Wiggington for an upgrade at C, SS, or RP
