These guys aren't really worth a spot on a fantasy team. It looks like a bottom tier finish. After Bonds, Thome, and Mussina, it looks like your team quality fell pretty dramatically. Who did you pick for your #4-10th rounds? That's where you lost your league.

• Waiver: A. Kennedy for A. Boone pending until Feb 26 - [ view details ]
• Waiver: J. Burkett for R. Biddle pending until Feb 26

Does these moves make sense?

The first one doesn't. The second does. Aaron Boone is out for almost the whole year with an ACL tear. Don't pick him up this year.

These two guys to replace Kennedy and Burkett. That's enough of an improvement if there's no good pitchers out on the waiver wire.

Pick up Texeria, Ensberg and Durham. Drop Batista. He will single=handedly put you last in batting average. What other pitchers are available?

Pick up Contreras. He's a good starting pitcher, and will get tremendous run support.
