Postby rouss » Tue May 09, 2006 7:36 am

3B- E. Chavez
SS- O. Cabrera
OF- A. Dunn
OF- C. Beltran
OF- C. Lee
Util- J. Lugo
Bench- A. Kearns, R. Winn (thinking about dropping for R. Freel)

SP- R. Oswalt
SP- K. Millwood
SP- K. Rogers
RP- F. Rodriguez
RP- B. Jenks
BN- F. Garcia
BN- M. Clement
BN- J. Lackey

Please help, and I'll do the same for you.

Im guessing your power numbers are fine. But what are you consistently losing? In 3rd place with that team this early Im not sure you want to do anything yet.

Agreed.. Sit pat unless you've got an area you're consistently losing in. If its SB, maybe the Winn for Freel would be a good move, if you'd ever play him!

I would grab freel..his versitility would provide benefits that winn probably can't match. besides that though, your team is pretty soild. you might be able to upgrade at ss also, as i'm not sold on cabrera in a struggling angels offense. good luck.

you have a solid team, and maybe its a litte early to make moves, but i would maybe try to move Freddy Garcia or Matt Clement and O Cabrera for a solid arm. This would also allow yopu to move freel into a util spot and start lugo @ SS

SBs look like the only weakness, for now. Freel would be good there, until Griffey comes back. Any other SB options available?

Maybe its just me, but I hate using a MI at the Util position, I feel like you can get more production in that spot from a 1st basemen or outfielder. Maybe after a week or two when Lugo has shown that he is healthy, you can shop him to a team that is weak at SS for a real power 1B or outfielder. Also I just don't trust Millwood and Clement, I don't know what their value is in your league but if you can get good value for them I would make a move. Otherwise I like your team, and think your outfield can really carry it. ... p?t=202365
