Word on the street is that your 2nd closer, Soria, is experiencing a sore elbow. Perhaps look for closer for the bench. Then add OF depth.

Dang, should have checked that before drafting him :(

Thoughts on Cespedes?

I would definitely be looking for some outfield help, even if you have to get 2 platoon type outfielders.

Cespedes will no doubt give you power stats. And with those homers will come Ks and low BA. Maybe as a 4th to 5th OF. Not worth the risk any sooner.

I just took Torii Hunter (same lineup as Pujols) and Austin Jackson as my 3rd and 4th OFs. I have a tentative deal on the table BTW to trade Cain for Victorino. Thoughts?

I have played H2H for 7 years. I am firmly in a belief that you need stud SPs to go after your weekly opponent. My league is a weekly set lineup. I would not deal Cain unless you find an SP to replace him. And with Ellsbury, Upton, Austin and Torri do you really need Victorino? Especially at the expense of Cain?

I dunno.

UPDATE

Where do I address next? Someone drafted 6 SPs in a row so it's so incredibly dry this year...
