Is this a 5 team league??

How could Eaton and Phillips be on the WW?

I would keep Bradley, pick up Phillips and drop Affelt or Jackson for Eaton.

Personally, I'd hang on to Bradley with the roster you have. I think he'll have a decent season, and might be able to help you out down the road (perhaps as a throw-in for a trade or if one of your starting OFs gets hurt).

Obviously, you need a catcher, and I'd consider getting rid of Crawford. With Guerrero, Ordonez and Pierre, do you plan to use him much? Think about packaging him up with someone else and upgrading one of your positions and then pick up a catcher. Or, trade him straight up for a catcher.

As for the catcher situation, if you plan to pick up one of the catchers you listed, I'd go with Phillips in a single season league and maybe consider taking a flier with Mauer in a keeper. If you trade for a catcher, I'd definitely consider picking up Phillips as a back-up. Since he'll play almost every day, you can use him to fill in your starters off-days without sacrificing your stats.

I know you didn't ask, but here are a few other thoughts on your roster. For what it's worth, I think Burnitz is a little unnecessary on that roster. The only exception would be if you plan to platoon him with Pierre when the Rockies are playing at home. Also, you ought to be able to put Burnett on the DL once the season starts.

Hope this helps!

you definetly need to pick up a catcher......for this year only I would take phillips over mauer. I would drop plenty on your roster before I dropped bradley though (i.e. edwin jackson, a.j. burnett, affeldt, burnitz.....and maybe some others).

Hrmmm... edwin is a possible stud though, everyone was very pissed when I grabbed him late, they all were waiting for him... Should I just deal him? Will he not have a good year?

Whats wrong with burnett and affeldt?

nothing is wrong w/ edwin jackson, burnett or affeldt.....but milton bradley is a top notch fantasy player who will break out this year......affeldt has never proved anything, burnett is full of question marks after having surgery.

I think e. jackson will be solid, he is in the best pitchers park out there and has good stuff.......that being said he is still no where near as valuable as bradley and he will fade in the 2nd half when his inning total rises.
