It would really help to know what your roster looks like. That way people that respond can assess how badly you need a certain position.

If you already have a decent group of SP I would drop him for:
-Lincecum
-Kershaw
-Adenhart

Other than that I would stay put unless you will need a replacement at one position in the near future other than SP.

Wow are your opposing owners even trying? Your pitching staff is already loaded with young guns. You may even want to disregard pitching and just focus on improving your hitting. Although there is a decent chance Lincecum will move to the pen at some point and his star talent is undeniable. For me, it would be very hard to pass up a chance at adding a guy like that, especially considering you only have Zumaya and K-Rod for RP's.

I think you need to add a catcher or 1B of the future. Based on your roster, along with the three I mentioned above I would also consider adding Saltalamacchia or Dukes. Remember its still hard to say which position either will end up playing. Dukes has been rumored to be moving to 1B as has Saltalamacchia. The good thing about Salty though is that its almost definite that he will be playing one of the positions you will most likely have a need for in the future. Hope this helps... :-D

thanks Falco..appreciate your help!

Are u concerned about Salty's bad o6?

I like Dukes and was going to take him...so i'll include him in the mix.

So, is Westbrook the one to drop?

I think Salty is a good enough player that he will be able to bounce back, but the player I like above all the others on your list is Lincecum. You might be able to make a deal for a Catcher with some of the other pitchers you have already and still take Lincecum. That's what I would do.

Also, Westbrook is def. your worst player.

You've got plenty of pitchers.

I'd grab Lind since he's closest to helping you.

He can get a much better player than Lind if he deals some of the pitchers at the end of his bench. Besides Lind might not consistent playing time next year with Rios still in the picture.
