I hate to repeat the others but that team is sick. Offensively it really can't be improved. If you want to really knit pick maybe upgrade with a better starter or get yourself another dependable closer but unless you get a decent deal this team is really solid. ;-D Thanks for the help on mine

Maybe yes right now on Carp. When is his stock gonna be lower. If you could package a starter and a bat for Carp.......jump. I doubt it'll be that easy though.

For sure, for the right now, I'd drop An. Sanchez for Lilly. Gotta love those AL East pitchers coming to the NL Central. And I'm just not a big Sanchez fan. And with only 6 keepers, you need not worry about that......(edit) or Maine, I didn't even see Maine. Love Maine this year.

Matter of fact, with the studs you have to keep. you really needn't even worry about the Shealy types. Drop him for one of those free agents. Whichever one you covet most.

Sick lineup though.

THanks for your help with mine. You need SP and a closer. I'd try to move Hawpe.

Thanks for the help with mine. My main league is H2H and I've won it the last 3 years. I prefer strong hitting to strong pitching in H2H because it is far more consistent. One bad outing from a stud pitcher in a week and he's a wasted high draft pick. That said your pitching is not as strong as your hitting, and you'd love to get a top tier pitcher, but make sure it's the right deal. FWIW, I have Kazmir and Bonderman as the #10 and #11 ranked pitchers this year, so it's not like they are bums.

From a strategy standpoint, I'll assume you have no innings limit and daily changes. In that format I like to keep just one bench hitter, have enough low ERA high K relievers to have in the P spots to give the max number of guys to see action each day and then have a bunch of starters. Since you can plan on winning most of the hitting categories, you have a good chance of winning W,K each week and then if you are OK in ratios you're golden.

Wow what a team. Offensively, its sick. But your pitching needs another ace. See what you can trade/afford to lose on offense and go get an ace for the team. If not an ace, either aim for a Matt Cain or Rich Harden type guy, someone who has the upside to blow up and get a lot of K's. That's all your pitching really lacks: a guy who can tally up a high K total. Other than that, sick offense!

I think that I am OK for K's with Bonderman, Kazmir, Bedard. I think that the only thing my pitching needs is a guy who can keep his era down and pick up some wins.

Jesus CHRIST that's insane. That is clearly the offense of someone that's taken the exact moves with prospects two, three, four years ago. Crawford, Howard, Wright, and Sizemore are all guys that have absolutely exploded the past 2 years. You picked the right prospects (except Upton hasn't panned out yet) so I commend you for your offense. ;-D

However, I'd say you could spare Howard+Saito and get back Konerko+Zambrano/Peavy/Webb. Or do something to get an ace.

Thanks for helping me! ;-D

Wow...really nice team! In my opinion, I would stay put right now, and see hw the team pans out. I think Bonderman will be a legit ace this year.

Great team, good luck!
