thanks for the help on mine. i would definitely pickup wickman and drop baldalli. i would play francoeur in the outfield and sexson at utility until rios comes back. i'm not a fan of alou as he's always hurt. i might also look to get another sp to solidfy your staff. most of your starting pitchers are relatively young and may not be able to keep it up the rest of the season.

My updated roster looks as follows:
C-Estrada
1B-Morneau
2B-Roberts
3B-Arod
SS-Kinsler
OF-Vlad
OF-Sizemore
OF-Francoer
Util-Sexson
Bench-Alou
Bench-Rios(have Harden on DL)
SP-Peavy
SP-Bonderman
RP-T Jones
RP-Saito
P-Jenks
P-Wickman
P-Zumaya
B-Ervin Santana
B-C Young
B-Jer Weaver
DL-Harden

Is there anywhere else that I should go for help? Who should I look into acquiring through a trade? Who might I give up for that player? I want a better pitching ace. Who might be a feasible one to look into? Myers? Zambrano? Halladay?

As far as Kinsler goes, I was looking for contributions in HR, RBI, and AVG. Kinsler has been a huge addition for me this year. His stats are: 21 RBIs 7 HRs 26 RBIs 2 SBs .320 Avg in 150 ABs. Available SSs are Lugo, Vizquel, K Greene, Uribe, Carroll. Are any of them better than Kinsler in the categories that I am in need of?
For my Util, I was in need of the same cats, hence why Sexson is starting. Are there any players that I should go after by offering one or two of my players? Aubrey Huff is available...I just released Baldelli. Hawpe, N Johnson, Thames are all out there...http://baseball.fantasysports.y ... 06&sort=13
Thanks for your help

If you can make either of those trades with Jones and Baldelli take it, theyre both great for you. Otherwise, try to get Wickman and just drop Baldelli. He's a waste and as the Sports Guy will attest, he's never healthy anyway. No one else in free agency is worth picking up really.


I like this plan the most. Both trades seem to work out for you as far as team needs. I would try and move Baldelli as well while his value is high.
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

I have mixed thoughts about dropping Kinsler for another shortstop. For one, Juan Uribe and Julio Lugo are both available. However, these two are either low in the batting order or play for disappointing teams. I feel that my team looks good enough to make a run for a trophy, but do you think that i should make a move to get another SS? I like Kinsler and his stats and I think he will do great things in the next few years. Would I do better with lugo or uribe???
