Yeah, I think you can definitely keep it up, especially when Wieters gets called up and Drew gets healthy. Very nice pitching, aside from Volstad. I think there's better back-end rotation depth than that.

Bonifacio's value is peaking, however, and you need to upgrade at 3B. In a 12-team league without extra slots, I don't think Alex Gordon is going to cut it.

Waiver wire for 3B is really weak

Adrian Beltre
Hank Blalock
Ian Stewart
Kevin Kouzmanoff
Melvin Mora
Josh Fields
Brian Barden

Who is tradeable on my roster to bring in a good 3B through trade without hurting my team

Your pitching is very good. I think your hitting might need some help though. A lot of the guys you have our hot right now and will probably come down. Maybe try to trade a couple of your hot unproven players for some proven commodities who you might be able to get for cheap b/c of a slow start.

You should have a good season due to the strength of your pitching staff. Shields is off to a shaky start with another loss tonight dropping his record to 2-2. I hope he turns it around because hes also the number two guy on my staff. Baker, Bartlett, and Bonnaficio have been producing great numbers but arent proven and might fade in the upcoming weeks. If i were you i might look into trading one of those arms for someone who will hit for power.

You might stay in first but not by 18.5 points. Bonaficio is starting to fizzle out, and who knows how Stephen Drew will play when he returns. Your pitching looks good, but i'm not real high on Ervin Santana, before last season his ERA was too high for my taste. Overall solid team, however just keep a close eye on Bonaficio, (his average has dropped from .500 on April 12 to .303 on the 22nd.) It might be a rough ride until Gordon comes back.
