Great draft. I think Huff will be a decent 3B, but if you can get a good deal for Migi take it. I would give up Hafner, one of your reserve guys for him. You could really use some speed. Maybe try and trade Andruw Jones + Jason Schmidt to the team that has Carl Crawford + their best SP. That would solve your need for speed, and your want for an Ace SP. Hope this helps, good team btw.

From the looks of it, you have a very deep starting pitching rotation. I'm of the belief that an ace can't win you categories alone so giving up a lot for one is not worth it. If you can swing a trade for Cabrera then more power to you, as I see it 3B needs a little lift. As for speed, guys like Dave Roberts and Ryan Freel, if still available on the WW, are good places to look without having to make trades. I like Hafner a lot and think he'll produce this year, the Indians supposedly look a lot better than last year. I think your biggest hole is gonna be at RP. Wainwright is supposed to be a starter now and Reyes hasn't been a closer. So at this point, you are basically giving away the Saves category. If available on the WW, grab Jose Valverde RP Arizona. He's set to be the closer at the start of the year. Any other questions let me know on here or PM. Good luck this year.

Offense may be good in homeruns but your average will be towards the bottom. Need stolen bases. You have plenty of quality starters but need closers. I think this team needs a lot of work.

Like the team and it looks like Otzuka will pay with Gagne gone, however, you still need a reliever because Wainright will be starting. Could use a little speed as well. Your power looks good.
