This team looks real good. Since it's a keeper you might want to find someone to replace Delgado and Randy Johnson but that's not a big problem


Help with mine?

a glaring weakness is ur RP, Wickman is not a candidate to keep his job all season, ur offense is real nice, maybe trade one of ur stud OF for a solid OF and a good closer..... ur SP is nice too and Fuentes will do a good job for you even tho he is closing at Coors Field....

First thing I woud do is begin trading off some of those old players: Johnson, Petitte, Thomas, and even Delgado. I hate Dunn and his average so I do something about that situation. Possibly add another closer or upgrade.

The reason I have older players such as Randy Johnson, Frank Thomas, and Andy Petitte is because only 8 players can be kept. I do agree on the Carlos Delgado comments, but who should I move to acquire a younger 1st baseman?

I may be bias here but Prince Fielder is the 1st baseman you looking for.

Any other thoughts? Fielder is a good idea....I wonder what it would take to pry a Derek Lee or Mark Teixira away.

Vlad, Suzuki, or Johan will probably land you Tex straight up but if not them, you must package. I would try a combo like Sheets and Dunn. If that doesn't fly, you might have to use Abreu instead of Dunn. I would try to acquire Kendrick if this big name trade doesn't fly.
