Your team isn't bad, but judging from your rankings it seems like you could use a little more power. I'd try to dump Hafner as he really sucks now, and maybe consider trading Hanley for another good SS and 1-2 power hitters, for example Hanley and 2 throw-ins for Furcal, Ortiz, and another power hitter - just an idea. But I think your team can make a run if everyone stays healthy and continues playing well.

Your offense is okay if they can stay healthy, but it's your pitching that's your real strength . I say try giving up some of your pitching to try and pull in some more offense. ;-D

DO NOT DROP HAFNER. Jesus, 1st reply, terrible response. Trade Hanley away for a scrub SS and some more power hitters? Are you insane? You can sit on this team, or make a few moves around with Willy Tavares, Joe Crede, Justin Upton are shippable.

Help on mine? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=349326

Sorry for the confusing wording, I meant "dump" as in "dump to someone else" not dump as in drop him. If anyone will take Hafner for a reasonable price then by all means go for it. As for Hanley, he is a stud but he 's not untrade-able, especially if you need help in other areas. If you can get a couple power hitters and a good SS like Furcal (who is definitely NOT a "scrub") in exchange for him, it wouldn't be the worst deal in the world. I don't see too much depth on your team so trading Hanley for good depth could help, just an idea. But yeah haha, don't DROP Hafner - TRADE him.
