Basically I think i have a good offense, too much speed and could use some averge but I plan on trading one of the speedsters if possible. my staff is just ok but its good for getting tons of cheap pitching late. your thoughts on how to improve?

I'd try to find another bat to help in the power categories. You have a plethora of speed, so you could use some of those assets to try and get power later. Your pitching is probably a little weak, but you can fix that at some point. I'd try to land another quality starter, preferably with high strikeout potential. I don't think your average is all that bad. You can compete for the top half of that category.

I just made a trade. I traded Jacoby, Franklin, and Oswalt and I got Longoria. I added Evereth Cabrera and Kyle Blanks from waivers following the trade. I also just used my number 2 waiver claim on Phil Hughes and dropped Glaus.

I was my choice of Beltre,Reimold, or Juan Rivera and Zach Grienke for D Wright. and Shields.

What do you guys think of this deal?

drop your link ill hit you back

Thanks for the feedback on my team dude.

I like your team but there are a lot of questions. I had the Ells/Bourn combo for me last season and I won the whole thing. Of course I traded for Ells and got Bourn off of waivers. What did you spend on those two? I think they were terribly overvalued this season. I'd have rather paid less for Nyjer Morgan, Julio Borbon, Rajai Davis, Pierre...

Don't know what you'll get out of Hamilton. Magglio's nice for AVG and OBP if healthy. Another guy who'll be lucky to see 500 ABs. Porcello better start K'ing people since his BABIP tells you he was awfully lucky last year. Oswalt's got a bad back and so do I. It's hard enough to touch my toes (I'm in good shape otherwise) let alone throw 90+. I think Oswalt's definitely on his last legs.

Franklin and Wagner closing... what you spend? I'd have rather invested elsewhere and played the ultra-low end closer game.

I'd try to unload Bourn on someone for maybe another arm or an infielder with good AVG/RBI potential.

Ok, I think your pitching is fine. You should be competitive in all areas, as long as Felix delivers another ace season. I don't love Soto as a starting C in a 1 catcher 10 team league, I also think Prado and Konerko could be improved upon. I think you're solid, but not necessarily top tier unless you upgrade your offense a bit. I might try to swing a pitching for hitting trade. Then again, I'd probably sit it out for the first 6-8 weeks before doing anything. It;s truly hard to judge a team until you get rolling into the season.

My bad this is the real lineup, outfield is weak, I am banking on Hamilton having a bounce back year. Also I was offered

Reimold and Grienke for Wright and Shields. Whats everyone's opinion?

I love the Longoria trade you made. That was wonderful. It also allowed you to get Grienke. Would you be able to get a little bit better of an OFer than Reimold? Even if you can't, I'd personally make the trade b/c I think Grienke is the real deal.

Thanks for your reply on mine. Would you pick up Brian Matusz or John Maine and drop any of my guys?
