If you can find someone to give you a good power bat for Ellsbury i would do it. Don't just give him away tho. Kinsler, Theriot and Rios alone won't win you SB every week. Looks solid tho. You aren't hurting for power with the lineup you've got there.

Well I dont think you HAVE to have more power but if a good deal comes along I think you should jump on it. Why do you have Greene especially in a 10 team league? You already have Theriot as a backup...I'd cut him for something better on the ww.

I'm not sure you'll need more power, to tell you the truth. You're getting solid production across the board except at one OF position. I mean, you should have 20+ HR's from everyone but Theriot and Ellsbury, so while you don't have the big 40 HR guys you have a ton of solid 20+ guys.

The pitching staff has some great names but I'd be concerned with the number of SPers you have. Santana is going to the DL for a month, Harden is a huge injury risk, ditto Carpenter, and Morrow is going back to the bullpen. IF I were you I'd grab another SP when you DL Santana, and unless Morrow starts getting save opps. I'd get rid of him for another SP.

Great team, though, I really like that mix of players you have. Any help here?

I agree that you might need to address your starting pitching. You clearly knew what you were getting into when you drafted Carp and Harden, and you can never really rely on Beckett staying 100% either. If I were you, I might wait for one of them to start hot and then use them in a deal to acquire an SP who might not be as flashy a name, but is more durable. A Javy Vasquez maybe.

I think your offense is balanced enough that you don't need a pure power hitter. You may not win HR, but you should hold your own. I do think Ellsbury may end up being a nice sell high candidate at the start of the season, so don't be shy if you get a chance to deal him for some power.

Any help with mine?

The ONLY thing I see is a lack of power. Everything else looks great! If you get a trade that is decent then take it, but I think your team will do fine, even with the lack of HR's. I can't say i like Bradley though. Maybe look for a small power booster and get rid of him if anything.

Can you help with mine? viewtopic.php?t=374432
