I don't think your OF is weak at all. I think 3B and SS need major improvement. I would try and trade Phillips for a SS or a 3B. You don't need 3 second baseman. For an AutoDraft its not a bad team at all. Your pitching is pretty good you might just not have enough of it (especially if your league has a minimum innings) Hamels could be a problem tho. For some insurance you might want to trade for an Ace because i have a feeling Hamels will miss some significant time this year. I'm a Phillies fan and what I've been hearing about him all spring is not encouraging.

Who are free agents available at SS? Your team looks good and I think your OF is fine. Yeah a lot of 2b but that means someone is short. I'd move one for a SS if nobody there is attractive on the wire. What are the 10x10 stats? I'd say even without knowing you might want to pick up a SS and drop bartlett and move a 2b for a SP though your top 3 are great picks. GET DUNN IN THAT LINEUP!

Help. Suggestions?

THANKS GUYS! Feedback is appreciated.

I think im going to take out corey hart next week and put Dunn in there. Was thinking of trying to trade Jim thome and phillips for a 3b or ss, as i see a lot of people in my league using outfilders as there utility players.

I like kinsler though, i believe he will do well and i would like to actually keep him.

any other thoughts from anyone would be much appreciated.....

I also cant make up my mind of who i want in as my closers next week.

I have brad ziegler defintitly in and then it comes down to
Kerry Wood CLE
or
Brian Fuentes LAA

Cleveland plays seven games next week while LAA only plays six but cleveland hasnt been winning and are giving up a lot of runs..

leaning Brian Fuentes

Just got a trade offer.

I give Chase Utley 2B

I receive Melvin Mora 3B
and Heath Bell SD RP

I declined

He has Jose reyas though and i think that would be a good improvment for me.

Even though all of my team almost are base stealers.....

How important are SB in fantasy baseball?

Not bad, but I would trade an outfielder for either a SS or 3rd baseman. Zimmerman is rough times and Bartlett will cool down big time! I would look to package Zimmerman and Dunn and try and get back a solid third baseman along with an upgrade from Bartlett at SS.
