Looks to be a better than average team to me but not one that can contend. Your pitching is really thin, especially your relievers. Why not drop a hitter or two and pick up more pitching?

Love your SS and OF.

3 2B's (L. Castillo, B. Phillips, O. Hudson) are too many. I actually like your starter Castillo the least of the 3. I'd try to trade of them for a pitcher. If no takers, I'd drop Castillo and pick up a Free Agent pitcher.

If you have daily lineup changes, I don't think you can afford to keep both Wang and Josh Johnson. I'd say cut Josh J. for now (since he'll be out until at least June), and maybe pick him back up later when Wang returns and if your DL spot opens up.

And don't worry about what place your in until at least April 15th or 20th. It's just too early for that.

Good luck to you. Please take a look at my post...

So which of those guys should I pick up off waivers? I suppose I'll drop J. Johnson and one of the 2bmen, but which two pitchers should I get? Or should I trade for someone? Who? Sorry I'm so clueless.

Start Brandon phillips at 2b and drop luis.

I would rather have John Patterson than meche. For saves puts and gordon shield is good but not too many save with k-rod on same team. When wang comes back i like your pitching if beltre can hit 25 hrs 90 rbi your team is good. You have a great outfield and reyes is awesome.
