Alright, i got yer back man... Here's what I see


1. You got 2 Solid 2B's
2. You got 2 Solid Catchers

Either 2B and C you decide to keep i'd trade the other guys out for some help at Util. I personally think that Kinsler is a better fit for your team given his speed (and your lack of speed) and it gets you a better name in Cano to shop around for a nice player. Hell, I'm thinkin a Vick Martinez/Cano could land you a very very nice player.

But you gotta trade'em, cuz while they're nice options at 2B and C, that really is only because 2B and C are thin. Which means they're worth much more as trade bait then they are sittin on your bench or eatin up a prime util spot.

Another thing I would do right away is bench Youk for Mark Reynolds. I know Youk can put up some #'s occasionally but in the end he'll just bum you out w/ his 80/20/80 year. If OBP was a stat, then he'd be locked in at Util. Also, there's much better 3B/1B options out there. What I always say about Youk, is if you have the bench room, keep him around for his 1B/3B duality in case of off days or one of your better 1b/3b options gets hurt, but he's not an every day fantasy guy. Reynolds, while unproven, could smack 40 HR and that's never a bad thing.. Youk wont' smell that in his career. And i'm a Red Sox fan.. give me Youk as my #2 hitter every day of the week, but keep him away from my fantasy team....

Same goes w/ Jacoby Ellsbury. If you're just holdin onto him for speed, then at least go out and get an everyday player like Michael Bourn... He's bound to play everyday even w/ Kaz comin back, bourne's not goin anywhere. Jacoby will continue to split time in the OF. If/when Coco goes, then Ellsbury might have some fantasy value.. but right now i feel he's a waste of a bench spot....

As far as your Staff goes...

Well, again, use those 2B/C trading chips wisely and you could land yourself a nice upgrade at pitching. It's not terrible, but you could really a TRUE Ace, or at least another 2nd tier SP. Any 3 RP's will do so no worries there.

Hope that helps, here's my last place team...any help is appreciated!


Good Luck!
