My bat bench definitely needs some help. My OFs too. What else? Who is droppable?

My pitchers - yeah, I forgot E Santana was on the DL... grr. My MR's are OK. Handcuffed Jenks with Dotel. But my starters are OK at best, IMO. Who is droppable or tradable?

Thanks!

Hmm...you do need to address the outfield and might want to see what Morneau could bring in a trade given you have a solid backup in Delgado. See if you can dangle him for someone like Ichiro. That would let you cut Tavaras or Cameron and troll the waiver wire for a little power.

Since it's a shallow league, not sure I'd want to carry a guy like Stewart unless he's playing every day. You're also carrying a lot of insurance (Putz, Arredondo, Beimel, Dotel) and you might consider kicking one to the curb (I'd probably kick Beimel...even if he did take the job of closer from Hanrahan, the save opps will be few and fare in between, plus the WHIP is kind of high for a pure middle man...either that or Putz, since K-Rod isn't exactly an injury risk) for another starter or bat.

Just my .02. Good luck!

that is interesting. who else you think i can get for morneau? delagado - eh... not a fan, but he was sitting pretty during the draft. i have a wire pending to drop cameron for tori, we'll see if i get him.

stewart is a sleeper? haha. damn forum! heheh. but thank you for your tips. very good stuff.

as for beimel, using him as a MR - and maybe closer later on in the season. trade bait possibly. i like the one year contract he got - he'll throw his best, i reckon.

thanks again for the tips - very helpful. please add more, if you have more advice.

The OF needs help but otherwise you look good. With those cats the bullpen guys are the smart move.
I'd try to trade Delgado before Morneau. He'll bring back less but I don't trust a full year of Delgado.

I like the Werth for Cameron swap. You'll still get a 20-20 player but he'll hit probably 30 points higher and maybe score more runs.

The main reason I suggested moving Morneau over Delgado is because you'll get more for him. If Delgado was hanging around waiting for you to snatch him during the draft, you might be hard pressed to find a trade partner to give you what you want.

Plus, and this is just my opinion, I think Morneau is a tad overrated. He's going in the 2nd/3rd round of most drafts, but I'd be perfectly comfortable with several first basemen who are going well after him (Adrian Gonzalez, Garrett Atkins, Joey Votto etc).

Given that someone else in your league is likely to love Morneau too, players like Carlos Quentin, Matt Holliday, Nick Markakis or perhaps even Carlos Beltran could come in return. For Delgado, at best, you're probably looking at returns in the form of Raul Ibanez, Johnny Damon and Brad Hawpe. You might find little more than a Pat Burrell or a Xavier Nady too. Opinions on Delgado seem to vary wildly this year, but the guy is only 36 and he's hit at least 30 homers every season for 12 of the last 13 years.

I like the Meche pick up, by the way. His horrible start disguised what wound up being a very good year. The Royals should be better, so 15W and 175K seem like good guesstimates.

Good luck!
