My Team:
C - Brian McCann
1B - Mark Teixeria | Justin Morneau
2B - Ian Kinsler
SS - Edgar Renteria | Jhonny Peralta
3B - A-Rod* | Evan Longoria
OF - Ryan Braun | Nick Markakis | Kosuke Fukudome | Torii Hunter | Corey Hart | Aubrey Huff | Xavier Nady | Alfonso Soriano
SP - Ryan Dempster | Jair Jurrjens | Ben Sheets | James Shields | Ted Lilly | Jonathan Sanchez | Edison Volquez
RP - Jokaim Soria
DL - A-Rod
BN - Joey Votto,Rich Hill,Fransico Liriano


I know my staff is pretty weak, and Sanchez isnt doing what I had hoped he would. Any one have any suggestions?

Your staff is your weak link but you can fix this on the WW. Keep an eye out for Colon, Homer Bailey and Clayton Kershaw. They can bolster your staff. What type of league is this ? You have a terrific offense so I wouldn't mess with it.Please help me out

Ah, forgot to mention that.

Total points league, everyone plays. Colon is stashed away on someones bench. I defiantly do have my eye on Kershaw, but our league is limited to 20 transactions per season, and I don't want to waste it on a player that might end up in the bullpen.

i love your bats...i would personally combo Torii and Volquez or one of your other arms thats producing and get you a stud like Webb, Peavy, Bedard etc...other then that i think you will be fine...really nice looking team there just try to move on of your hot bats with an arm like Volquez (who i don't think will keep this up much longer) for a top quality SP to add to the top of that staff..

help me out...

You're infield is pretty nice. I personally don't like to stack on teams but I understand with McCann and Texeira. Depending on how many outfield spots you have, I would look to trade one of the big names there and maybe Sheets and try for a big name pitcher. As much as everyone hates on Volquez, i'd keep faith in him. His hype was overshadowed by Cueto, Bailey and Bruce but he's legit. Aside from a chunk of walks (which isn't too bad but should be monitored), his numbers are great. His groundball percent is money as well as his Flyball %. The only part that's scary about that is BABIP is right around .300, kind of points to bad defense. I'm not really sure why you have Liriano, you might just be a Twins fan. Finally, keep an eye on Nady. His numbers are falling off and he traditionally only does well in April (sell high). Good luck and enjoy.
