Very good squad, and good trades btw. You have to start Atkins. I'd put him at 3B and rotate Upton / Swisher / Markakis at UTIL. Also, keep an eye on Delmon and Cuddyer they could end up being better starting options than Shane V and Kelly Johnson. Your pitching staff looks great and has no holes, and will be even better once Felix returns. One weakness, would be SS. Hardy has been playing well, but I still don't trust him. I'd look to package Hardy and one of your UTIL or bench guys for a top SS. Good luck

please return the favor

love the first deal but the second imo u got robbed at leat for this year imo. vlad and pettite too much to give for a a closer albeit good and i'm just not a fan of attkins although also good just think he neeeds help around him to succeed. cordero is the guy you won with. just my opinion as i'm not a keeper athourity figure.

I agree, maybe package Hardy and Upton for an upgrade at SS and Atkins would start at 3B

Start Atkins. He plays at Coors Field, hitting in a lineup with Holliday and Helton. Offensive slumps for Rockies don't last long.

I didn't like that 2nd trade that much, but you have to start Atkins... he will break out like Sexson is starting to now..

Very strong all-around team. Couple things I would suggest you deal is a couple of your excess OF for a RP (a closer) and SS. I would suggest trying to combo a deal with Hardy and an OF for a SS like Guillen or Young. Also I would deal an OF like Swisher or Young for another closer like Street or Ray. Other than that your team is very good.

Hmm, maybe drop someone for Torres. Your team is very deep, so my choice would be to drop D-cab.
