I like your team generally... but Peralta is having such a bad year except for runs, and now he is hitting down in the order, so he won't even be getting those. Also, there should be a better 3B on the WW or a little trade, that has turned into a very deep position this year, Tracy is ok as a bench guy, but his production isn't enough to be at third all the time in fantasy, IMO.

Your pitching is not deep and has some pretty big risks (is Lester for real?- I don't think so this year. Can Pettite turn it around? I think he can. Can Guardado be successful in Cinci- I think so because its the weaker NL, even though that park is tiny). Maybe try to upgrade there through WW or a trade. See what you can get for Sexson or trade a Gonzalez or Guradado to someone that is save- crazy. Hope this helps.

Return the favor?

you have a ton of power but your average must not be very good (sexson, phrealta, gomes, tracy). your pitching looks weak at the top but it gets better. i would defiently try to upgrade your SP and maybe get a better SS and possibly another OFer. looks solid though. ;-D

Can you help me out please?!? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... p?t=228975

I would also say a pretender with some potential. Do some upgrades and u can be considered a contender. Check the WW for a SS with a good average. F. Sanchez would be a great pick up since he is available at SS or the WW or trade.

As for ur pitching, I would have Liriano starting over Pettitte. Pettitte can't get a win to save his life right now, but I do agree that he'll turn around. As of now I would have Liriano at Pettitte's spot. Use Gonzo or Guardado in a trade package to get some more power for ur batting or try to pick up a Thames of the WW.
