You have the top 2 catchers in MLB, and no reason to do so. Also, considering you have Morneau, I wouldn't say that's "weak." 3B and OF, though, are areas of concern.

If I were you, I'd trade Victor Martinez for a stud OF, and then package Vernon Wells or Adam Jones with Jaime Garcia to get a higher-tier SP. With the available open spot, sign Alex Gordon. I'm a big believer in him this year. Read my article at Pro Fantasy Baseball to see why:

Keep me posted, and good luck! ;-D

If the other managers in your league are hesitant to trade try posting some of your offers on [url]TradeBashers.com[/url]. The site is designed to let users vote on which side of the trade they would prefer so that you can go back to the other managers and show them that the offers you're making are reasonable.
