It's a 12 team roto league. I'm not too happy with this draft, however, would you guys trade Carlos Lee for a stud pitcher or 2 good ones and move Cuddyer to OF. I feel like its a waste to have Cuddyer on my bench. Any thoughts? Leave a link...

That's a pretty amazing offense for a 12 team league. I like your top 2 starters but you could use an ace. Cuddyer is a solid option for you in the OF and Iwould try to deal Lee for a pitcher no less than a Zambrano/Webb/Halladay/Oswalt. That gives you 3 quality pitchers that will be solid. Great draft for 12 teams in my opinion.

Nice overall distribution with pitchers and hitters.

Unfortuntely, I dont see much dominance in any category besides runs, K's, SVs and possibly SB.

As for the Lee trade, I'd hold off. IMO, Carlos has shown much more consistancy than Cuddyer. Look at what you can get for Cuddyer before you go off trading your best OF.

I like the team quite a bit, but I don't think you NEED to shop for a top starter. Either Lackey or Myers could emerge as a top starter this year (especially Lackey), and paying top dollar for pitchers is scary. I would try to make a move for another second tier pitcher, which would give you a solid three starters (4 if escobar is healthy) in all categories. Guys to consider would be Haren, Cain, Chris Young, Bonderman, Ervin Santana.

I like the offense, but the infield is weak. I would try to package swisher and figgins or swisher and kinsler to get the pitcher. Swisher and figgins should get you a decent return, and you already have reyes to hold down SBs until someone emerges on the waiver wire. Cuddyer can then move to 1B, and hopefully you can grab a high risk/high reward type 3B somewhere else.
