I'd do that. I think Buchholz will end up better than Lilly over the course of the season, though those two are pretty much a wash at the moment. But you get a huge upgrade from Kung Fu Panda to Prince. And while losing Bell is a big downgrade at RP, I'd rather be stronger at 1B than RP -- more opportunities to find legit stand-in waiver wire pickups in relief than at 1B, as the guys inexplicably available in your league (Boggs unclaimed still? Axford?) suggest.

Pull the trigger.

Pull the trigger.

I own Clay and I'd rather have him start slow and finish strong (which is what I believe he will do). He has more upside than Lilly.

I own Panda, and giving him up for Fielder (especially during a contract year) is the way to give him up. I assume you'll be dropping Alvarez once Zimm gets back.

Losing Bell hurts, but when you have that may quality relievers on your w/w, it doesn't sting as much.

I like Boggs, Aarsma, Axford, Capps, and Francisco (in that order, although I have Francisco moving up once he gets 100 percent).

Still do that, it is more even but I personally dont value Closers that much and Buccholz will have better support than Marcum. Fielder is alos in a contract year, so expect him to produce! Make the trade for sure

Basically just upload an image to Photobucket or a website like that then use the insert Img button and put the link in between it.

You can use this thread to request sigs, thats how I got mine.
