Looks solid over all -- but I would try and package Beltre for an upgrade at SS or closer.

Your team looks good, but if anything you could do is trade one of your arms like Jered Weaver for a good closer.

thanks for the help w/ mine.

Thanks for the help.

I'd look to trade one of your SP's for an upgrade at 1B. You can definitely do better than Sexson.

My thoughts exactly. Sexson is at best a middle-of-the-road choice right now. I would package Beltre while he is "hot" (only hitting .313 over the last month) and a pitcher for an upgrade, then move Sexson to Util.
