Your team looks solid... I wouldn't change too much. I'd say there is a good reason you're in first ;-D

Help?

yah maybe see if you can do something about SS...cabrera is also a nice option there he has been doing great back in the AL and with LAA

once cantu comes back and helton comes back also your offense should be good and it will keep you up there in 1st

I have bad luck when it comes to signatures that the person either gets traded or hurt...in this case I hope he gets traded.

for now, is there anything i can do w/ my pitching? im confident in my ss w/ furcal/peralta, they'll both heat up eventually.

also, should i pick up willingham for anyone? or is mauer solid enough?

i woudl say willingham would be a good solution to mauer's early season woes, although i think that mauer should be better over the course of the year...also willingham was just told he has the starting spot in lf so he will be an everday guy, which is better than a catcher who usually takes days off regularly

as far as your pitching goes, you might want to try to sell bedard high especially after that last start he had i dont think he is going to be anything special this year...but otherwise i like owwalt/smoltz/lackey/vazquez combo that shold work out nice..and it goes deeper with cain haren blanton liriano it looks good ;-D

Looks like you've got a solid squad. Unlike the others, I wouldn't trade to upgrade your SS. However, I think you could use Furcal's SBs more than Peralta's pop. First thing I would do is pick up Willingham (I can't believe he's still available at this point!); if Peralta starts to heat up, see if you can trade him and Mauer to someone for an upgrade at 2B or RP.
