I don't see Baldelli being better than any hitter with a .316 average, 19 HRs, and 46 RBIs, no matter who it is (Dye). Stick with Dye, you won't be disappointed over the long haul. I traded him earlier this season, and have regretted it deeply.

Maximus,

My thoughts exactly. If...and a big emphasis on IF, I do pick up Baldelli, it'll be as a 4th outfielder/spot starter. There's no plausible basis for playing him and benching Dye. That's just silly talk.

edit: picked up Baldelli on Sunday, dropped Mulder

Not really sure what you're looking for here, but maybe try to sell high on Glavine?

Thanks for help with mine.

I'm looking for ways in which I can tweak my team.

I already have a first place squad. But I feel there is always room for improvement somewhere.

Are my closers good enough?
Do I need another bat?
Do I need another stud pitcher?
Who should I trade in order to address the above?

That's what I'm looking for. ;-D

^^^Thanks

Traded Adam Dunn and Ty Walker to get him. Dunn is hitting about .220 and Walker ended up on the DL just days after the trade went through. One of my better moves.

Right now I'm trying to trade Dye and either Blanton/Hamels for an OF upgrade. Nobody seems to want to take Dye right now.

Well...I have a Glavine for Bay trade pending. If it gets through today, I can add Bay to an OF that will consist of C-Lee/Bay/Dye. I'd move Figgins from OF to 3B and move Cantu from 3B to my bench and ultimately try to move him.

Added M. Napoli, dropped R. Martin. Napoli has more pop in the bat than Martin while maintaining a slightly higher BA. He also has the luxury of hitting in the middle of an AL lineup as opposed to hitting in front of the pitcher in an NL lineup. All those factors appealed to me.

Meanwhile, my closer situation continues to be a headache. Gordon just doesn't get enough save chances. Ditto for Saito. Coffey is getting save chances but is proving to be unreliable. Can't wait for MacDougal to get back. While he might not get a ton of save chances, he won't ruin my ratios like Coffey.

I still would like to add another closer with solid ratios without parting with any of my major pieces. Ideally, I'd like to use Cantu as a trading chip- maybe wait for him to get hot?
