I personally dont like Zambrano, and think he's the most overated pitcher in the game. I picked up Wellemeyer of the wire last year for nothing and he had a comparable year. Zambrano has been getting worse every year. That said, trading Drew for him is a push at this point, although if Drew has a good year this year you lose that deal. Basically your weaknesses are OF and SP, and only one true closer in a 12 team league isnt going to cut it either. You need big years from McGowan and Sanchez to have any shot with pitching. If it were my team, I would be looking to sell high on Youkilis, and looking to trade the aging Ichiro and Soriano. I would try to buy low on a guy like zimmerman then take flyers on guys like gutierrez for the mariners and moss for the pirates to diversify your OF. You need to start seriously thinking about getting a younger OF now, while you can still get some value for Sorian, Ichiro, and Swisher. Try to trade high on Lyon too.

Very nice team. I like the big trade you did.

I'd be on the look-out for a waiver-wire starting pitcher. McGowan and Marcum are out for the first month and year, respectively.
He once hit a ball between my legs so hard that my center-fielder caught it on the fly backing up against the wall.

If Satch (Paige) and I were pitching on the same team, we would clinch the pennant by July fourth and go fishing until World Series time.

That's a great hitting lineup. The pitching may be a bit suspect but like MikeeDee I'd say the way to remedy that is playing the waiver wire early in the season. I guarantee there are some pitchers not owned in this league who will have good seasons. What kind of pitchers are unowned?

I like your chances, before the season. You have a ton to work with, and should compete for a title.
