I think your pitching is pretty good, but I as well am doubtful of Rodriguez. He was too good for too short of a time. I don't know about Stewart either. I'd try for an RP and SP on the waiver wire, you can find one of each that is most likely better than Stewart and Rodriguez. Rodriguez is pretty popular, so you may be able to unload him in a trade.

As for offense, I would bench Kearns and put in Carlos "The Big Horse" Lee. Keep Kearns around though - he will benefit from an entire year batting near Dunn and Griffey. Your other possible drops as I see them are Erstad and Olerud.

Did you know there are no such things as "white" or "black" people?

You only have 2 proven starters in Glavine and Zito. Beckett and Burnett are supposed to do great things this year but you might want to put together a package for a proven starter. Use 1 or 2 of your outfielders or maybe 1 OF and 1 RP. You have decent RP. Rodriguez is the unknown and if you package him in a deal with erstad you may be able to pick someone up.

I think you are a contender, but especially if you can trade for a proven starter and then find a RP on the ww. I like what you've done a 1B Kelsko gives you some flexibility if Olerud gets injured or has an off year. I agree with the others on Rodriguez. Package him up with Erstad and see what you can get SP wise.
