3 - Conger, Hank (0 Abs - C - LAA)
4 - Crowe, Trevor (0 Abs - OF - Cle)
5 - Grossman, Robbie (0 ABs - OF - PIT)

well just completed my first deal with a very ugly team. Think I did very well.

I sent Cust and Matsui for YEscobar & a pretty nice prospect in Brett Lawrie

So add Lawrie to that farm.

are you only allowed 12 minor league players in this league? if so even for 20 teams this seems like a week minor league system- Pedro Alverez of course has huge upside, ishikawa should be called up will be 1B for Giants this year, i actually like jason castro and think he will be a solid cathcer- hank conger has a solid bat but i don't think he will stay at catcher and i don't know if his bat can carry him at 1B- grossman has decent potential along with parra.

Yeah, sorry to say it's a weak farm system. Pedro obviously being elite talent but after that you don't have a lot. Lawrie, Conger, Castro, Parra, & Tucker all have some talent so if you can build on that core it could be nice with time. Grossman is an interesting toolsy guy that I'd hold onto and see how he does.

I'd probably take Pedro, an elite 3B is worth a bit more to me than an elite OF.

As far as who to drop, you could probably find better guys than: Crowe, Mayberry, D'Antona, Parmelee, & Reyes. It's hard to say exactly with out knowing much else about the league though.

I believe I took over this very same mess of a team for half of last year. Good luck with that. :-P
