Solid team ;-D The only things I can see that could use an upgrade would be pitching and possibly your bench hitters. I don't see any holes in your starting offense. Who knows what Schmidt will be able to do and Schilling is getting old so other than slightly upgrading your pitching, I think it looks solid. Thanks for your help with mine.

Frankly, your hitters are ridiculous for an 18-team league. Your bench (hitting) is pretty shallow but I don't think it matters that much, you should dominate even if someone gets dinged up during the season.

Your pitching is OK, still decent for an 18-teamer.

You do have two top 3B and it would be nice to get one more top tier pitcher so if anything, you could dangle one of them (preferably Wright) but it would have to be for a Halladay/Peavy/Bonderman type of guy. That's really the only move I'd consider.

I considered dealing a 3B, the only pitcher I would take 1-1 would be Johan. Miggy and Wright both have more value than any other pitcher. I did as many trades as possible to get the best 8 keepers, and since we start two UTIL either Miggy or Wright are the best UTIL player in the league. I'll contact some of the owners who have elite SPs (Just not sure if I'll get great value, both Wright & Miggy were top 10 picks). I just hope Schmidt can come back and have a good season.

I like your team. I would not necessarily try to trade either of your 3B. Your ULT spot ought to be so much better than everyone else, that it isn't fair. I like it alot for an 18 team league.

You need more SP. Bite the bullet and move one of your big bats. My suggestion would be Hunter for a tier-two pitcher, maybe tier-three.

I agree. Very solid team though - especially in an 18 teamer!

very strong lineup.. i agree that you should try to move a bat for a solid/stud pitcher to help out the rotation

amazingly strong team for an 18-teamer...how exactly did you get that great of a lineup in this 18-teamer?? thats just crazy, i know your pitching probably suffered a little bit to get all those bats, but to have Wright, Miggy, Utley, HanRam, Sizemore AND Carlos Lee, i mean i thought my 12 team batting lineup was great with Pujols, Wright, Beltran, Carlos and Manny but dang thats crazy....i agree your going to have to sacrafice a bat to add some pitching...and i also agree with going with Torii, but i wouldn't take anything less then a 2nd tier pitcher...hes still good for 25+ homers and close to 90+ RBI with a high .280+ average, and toss some steals in there and hes better then half the OFs in your league...

help me out...

great offense for an 18 team league.

I would def. make Lincecum one of your keepers because he will be the ace of your staff for years to come.

Id put a feeler out to the owner of Johan and see if he is receptive to taking one of your 3B for Johan. Other than that Id wait awhile and see how your pitching does.



Thanks for the comment on mine.
