Do yourself a favor, try and trade Jered Weaver. He is a punk and won't amount to much, just like his brother.
Win 2 more and then we'll talk.

Don't listen to the last guy. Weaver has more talent than his brother, but he is hurt right now, so you'll have to wait on him. I think you need a new C. Bard is ok, but there has to be someone better out there. You are missing a top-tier SP, you may try to move Miller/Maybin for someone who is under 30. ... p?t=263364

I don't normally play such a deep leagues, given the number of offensive guys you have, but it seems you're rock solid offensively, to the point of maybe having too much (see your shortstop overload). It might not be a bad idea to sell one of those guys for a starting arm, as you are lacking that front tier starter to carry you.
Jered Weaver is NOT a punk, and Chris Young and Rich Hill have some interesting upside, but you need a little more there, in my opinion.

Closers need a little work, Orvella is a flyer, and Dempster and McClung give me heartburn. Try to build up your pitching, or find some more arms on the wire.

Please WHIR my latest post. Thanks.

Infield is above average with MCab and Tejada more than making up for weakness at catcher. Could use some speed though.

Outfield does NOT make up for your speed problem. I'm still concerned about that, but the rest of your hitting is in great shape.

Util-types -- Furcal helps speed, but I still think you need more. I'm wondering if Helton was a great option given that it's a keeper, but he will work well this season.

Pitching -- your starting staff is keeper GOLD, lots of upside-guys, and I like your potential closer strategy. Your bench spots (both pitching and hitting) are well stocked for the future, if anybody should explode this year. Too bad you couldn't get Burke or Gordon, those would be my high-value keeper picks. If by any chance Mike Hampton is still availible, he could be a good SP option for keepers -- if he recovers well from his surgery/year off, he could have some solid trade value by year's end if you deal him to a team that's out of contention.
