Well in a 10-team league you should be able to have a better DH than Mike Lowell. Other than the team looks solid.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

It's probably too late at this stage but you do need at least one more and preferably 2 good bats for the OF. Giles is a diminshing producer and hardly worth rostering at this stage particularly in a 10 team league. Edmonds was a good bat but hardly reliable at this stage. Lowell is good insurance for Jones at 3B since Jones will almost assuredly wind up on the DL for a month or so. Pitching looks real solid.

Who are the OFs still free? and what other 3B's are free?

You might also want to grab Jeff Ken tor Jose Lopez for 2B if available. Kent hjas been flying under a lot of radars this year because of his injuries in 2006.

I think you need a power hitting outfielder and 1 more speed guy.

You could legitimately improve in all 3 OF spots(but I like Swisher), 3B, 2B, and DH.

I understand that there's usually a weak spot or two on all teams. Maybe try moving Smoltz for either young SP depth, a young DH, or a young 3B. I'm fine with Hudson at 2B, but I think it'd be smart to think more for the future and try moving guys like Smoltz, Jones, Edmonds, Giles, and Lowell.
The Big Hurt was robbed!

See if you can deal Rogers and Contreras for a Chuck James and Chone Figgins. How would that sound.
