Here is my team:

C Posey
1B Butler
2B Beckham
SS Andrus
3B ARod
OF Crawford, BJ Upton, Young
Util Reynolds
Bench Grady Sizemore, Carlos Lee, Alex Gordon

SP Cliff Lee, Sabathia, Josh Johnson, Hellickson, Bumgarner
RP Chris Perez, Ryan Franklin
Bench Andrew Bailey, Michael Pineda, Kyle Drabek, Brandon Beachy, Edwin Jackson,

I was thinking about picking up Mike Trout and Dustin Ackley. Also available are Freddy Freeman, Cameron Maybin, Rajai Davis, Derek Lowe, AJ Burnett.

I am not too comfortable with with Delmon Young as my third outfielder. How do you feel about my team? Who should I add/drop?

Thanks for the help. I think your pitching looks fine, I think you need more power though. I would grab Maybin or Travis Snider if he's available.

Can't really say how I feel about your team without knowing how many teams are in the league. Assuming its the typical 12...

What would adding Trout and Ackley do for you? They are still prospects and, unless this is a dynasty league, aren't going to contribute much. I completely agree that you need power.

Who else is out there? How about Ike Davis, Jim Thome, Travis Snider, Carlos Quentin, Carlos Beltran, Brandon Belt...?

Good luck! ;-D

Only guy I would think about dropping is Sizemore. Not real sure why you want Trout who is unlikely to play this year and might not play next year. Ackley is intriguing but you don't really need a 2B and who knows when he will be up. And don't worry about Young just yet, he was a top prospect a few years ago so he isn't exactly a fluke.

Thanks for the help! Maybe I should just stay put with the roster I have for a little bit. I am considering trading Cliff Lee for Dustin Pedroia. What do you think?

By the way, this is a nine person league. 5x5 roto

Lee is too much to give up for Pedroia considering you already have Beckham. Instead, make an offer of Beckham + a SP such as Edwin Jackson.

It is a fine trade only if you move Beckham to get a SP. There is a reason that Pedroia was getting drafted ahead of Lee a few weeks ago and nothing has changed. But losing Lee will hurt your rotation so you will have to find something to fill that hole.

I have just completed a trade: Carl Crawford for Josh Hamilton. Hamilton was picked slightly later in the draft, but provides me with just what my team needs, power. I also picked up Cameron Maybin, for sleeper potential, and also more speed/power combo off the bench.

I am watching Alex Ogando pitch in Detroit and I really want to pick him up. Who should I drop? Maybin, Carlos Lee, Edwin Jackson?

I am planning on dropping Ryan Franklin as soon as Andrew Bailey comes off the DL, but there are no other closers on the waivers, so I need him for the time being.

Done. I just dropped Lee for Ogando. I never should have drafted Lee in the first place.
