5x5, roto, 11 teams:
C- Rodriguez
1b-Pujols
2b-Castillo
3b-Rolen
ss-Tejada
of-ordonez
of-crawford
of-podsednik
util-chavez
util-jeter
bench- m. ensberg, r. durham, c. floyd, e. hinske, j. phillips

and now the bad news:
SP's: oswalt, batista, pavano, harden, peavy
RP's: isringhausen, rhodes

what should i do? i've been trying to trade ensberg, durham and chavez for pitching, but so far, no takers.

Maybe shop rolen and tejada too, since you have capable backups there(not a huge jeter fan though). Or you could just watch your offense dominate!

Trade some speed. You don't need Pods, Crawford, Castillo and Jeter in your lineup. Jeter or Crawford could catch a nice SP

You've got some AMAZING depth at 3B, and merely great depth at SS. You're also going to finish tops in steals by a huge margin. My advice? Don't panic. The season hasn't even started yet (Tokyo aside, of course). If you've got that kind of depth at 3B and SS, then that means SOMEONE in your league is probably going to be hurting at at least one of those slots before too long. Be patient, don't let 'em go in a desperate move to get a SP, and let them come to you. You'll be KILLING the league offensively in the meantime, and eventually other managers will realize that Joe Crede and Khalil Greene and Bobby Crosby and the like just won't cut it all season long.

DON'T settle for less than what these guys are worth.

DO make sure that you get at least one SP in return who can OBVIOUSLY, CLEARLY, and 100% CERTAINLY be considered better than anyone on your staff except Oswalt. You should be able to turn some combination of Chavez, Ensburg, Jeter, Crawford, Podesnick, and Durham into a substantial upgrade at both SP and RP. Just be patient and let them come to you.

I'd drop Pavano for Lohse yesterday, if not sooner.

Amazing offense and great depth at two tough positions to fill 3rd & SS. Post on your board that you are looking for pitching and see what offers you receive. Don't panic and don't settle either. Which other SP/RP's can you pick up on the wire?

well, one offer has come to me: tejada and chavez for mussina and tim worrell. perhaps the other manager is unaware that the phils plan to use worrell in a setup role and did not mean to offend. not sure how to counter the offer. his starters: mussina, vazquez, brown, penny, prior, radke, f. garcia.

aside from the guys i mentioned earlier, our waiver wire has russ ortiz, john thomson, and a few possible sleepers like jeremy affeldt.

Like others have said, you have amazing depth at 3B. You really need to get a quality pitcher for one of these. These are good players, get a pitcher for what they are worth.
