We kept 25 of the 28 and just had our 3 rounder with the newly added yahoo database (Dice-K, Bailey, etc). I took Dotel, Nomar, Lester, & Bradley with the 9th pick (all of the prospects were pretty much gone). I'm trying to trade OCab since he's not needed with Lugo and Barfield though I do like the insurance he brings batting 2nd in front of Vlad.

Um, I can't remember the last time I could say that I don't have any criticisms of a team, but this one is damn close to perfect. I don't know if Lugo will be so hot for you, but that's about all I can say. You have great young guys with Markakis, Barfield, Tulowitzki, Greinke, etc. and great balance. Nice team, sir.

Oh, and I clarified my league setting in my post (which you just posted on) so come back and see if that helps. Thanks man.

Well, I definitely think Cabrera is the first discard off that team...barring a catastrophe, he'll never see your lineup.

My main suggestion would be to think about adding a mid-level veteran starting pitcher. I love you starters right now, but we all know that with Sheets, Harden and Felix, you're going to be forced to endure some DL time from one or more of them. I don't know that I would fully trust Greinke, Pelfrey, Lester as my only bench pitchers. Hard to say who's available on the wire, but I'd be looking for a reliable guy that's not going to blow anyone away, but will give you a safety net.

Yeah, I agree with you. OCab is pretty much wasted. The only vet pitching available are Westbrook, OHernandez, Meche, Padilla, and Pavano. None are world beaters though I suppose I could try and trade for a Vet. OCab for Vazquez sound fair?

This is a really solid team, with a nice mix of vets and emerging starts. If only 2 or 3 of the young guys live up tp potential, you will be in a very good position. I'm not big on Lugo, but you can't disregard the offense he will play in. I don't know that Nomar will have much value, but I believe that Huff will come on strong this year, which covers you there is Nomar does not.

Nice team!

Thanks for mine

Yeah I pretty much agree with everyone else, that it is a solid team. I like the Barfield at 2B, I think he could do very well. I think you also have great OF depth with Manny at UTL, Plus I like Bradely on your Bench, he could have a solid year for the A's. You Starters are excellent and wouldn't worry about them for now. Also good pick with Dotet.

Great Team

A nice team with good overall balance. I agree with your suggestion of trading O-Cab; however, I am not sure what he will net you, even in a package. If someone will bite on a vet and O-Cab for Vasquez, do it. If not, pick up Padilla, and hope he puts up comparable numbers to last season's.
