good team... a bigger bat for your util position would be good....but theres not a good option on the fa wire.

lowell has seemed to turned it around since last year...having him at util is not a bad option, but it would be nicer to have a more productive hitter at that position, i really like your infield and your outfield is stacked with that addition of bay..he should turn it around, your SP is a bit thin after the top two or so, but i dont know how you have been fairing each week, you probably have good k/bb, and k/9 numbers

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.

Thanks for the responses so far, they are appreciated.

I think the power in my team is dominant, speed is ok although losing Lopez hurts there. I'm still hoping for 30+ SB's from Lugo though, and I'm happy I got him for Weeks since I have enough 2B's already.

As you guys have mentioned, quality in my pitching staff is one thing that I lack. My ratios are ok, but I lack wins and saves. I was mulling over a Willingham for Jenks trade but I doubt the other owner is going to bite. Was getting Lowry for Lowe an upgrade even?

I'm thinking I'll just stand pat for a while and scout the waiver wire for breakout pitching. If Liriano turns out to be good this year, I'll be decent (but still lacking in wins).

I think the best thing you can do is to stand pat. you have a good team, a good combination of competing in every category. You won't get a tons of Wins or Saves, but those are only two categories. Its tough to win them all. As long as you're not on the bottom in those categories you'll stay competitive for the top. That's what I think....

heres what i would do, trade utley, you can move lowell to second (he qualifes in yahoo leagues). Trade utley for an ace, pedro, carpenter, or throw in someone else and go for santana

im not a big fan of t.hunter. with that being said, you can possibly package him up with a pitcher, possibly bush or benitez, and see if you can get an ace out of it. atleast, start a trading relationship with a few other owners, see if someone can bite. hunter gives you numbers a few of your other players already give you, minus the team/super streakiness.


i like to do the 2 for 1 thing so, just my opinion


Good Luck

I don't think I would move Willingham just yet. As has been mentioned, you could use a little help at your 3 and 4 SP spots. I think that trading Utley for a stud is a good idea, but make sure that you get enough for him. He has a very high trade value, and you'd be losing a little at 2B with Lowell, but not that much. I guess I just tend to value hitters more than pitchers in general because they can contribute everyday.
