Sanchez (steals are so valuable and he's going to nab 50, I don't even know why he's available)

Kearns (could break out, good player to keep on your bench in case he does that and then trade him perhaps)

Burrell (same reasoning, but a comeback instead of a break out)

so I guess the question is then, which does my lineup need more speed or power?

I had Kearns last year before his injury and he was doing great.

Tigers should win more game for sure this year. Probably people are still scared of him because of the team he plays for I guess.

Kearns didn't hit 40 homeruns last year, but he could this year

Sánchez did steal 52 bases last year.
can't take that from a guy.

First of all, don't drop Bradley. Wait and see where he ends up. Could end up in Texas, that would obviously up his value. I'd drop Aurillia for Sanchez. Sanchez will have the green light on all season and if healthy give Pierre a run for the SB title. Plus you ain't got shit for steals other than Renteria.

I rank them like this:

1. Burrell
2. Kearns
3. Sanchez
4. Byrd
5. Wilkerson
6. Cruz
7. Mora

But considering your lineup, Sanchez would probably be the best fit as you could use the steals. Don't drop Bradley though. He'll help in steals as well and give you solid numbers across the board. If he ends up in a bad situation where playing time is an issue, then you can consider dropping him. But wait and see. You'll probably regret dropping him if you do it now. Aurilia is probably the one to go. You don't need him with Renteria, and if Renteria gets hurt, you can probably grab him back or someone comparable, as there has to be some decent SSs available if those kind of OFs are free agents. So hang on to Bradley and grab either Sanchez (biggest need) or Burrell (best available).

Except Castillo and Vlad.........along with Renteria thats 70 or 80 SB's. And I'd hang on to Bradley, ya never know where he'll end up.

yea definately dont drop bradley, drop aurilia, he sucks. Bradley is waaaay better even if he went to detroit and they started playing their home games in LA. I would rank the FA like this:
Kearns
Sanchez
Burrell
Byrd
Cruz
Mora
Wilkerson

don't drop Bradley- no one even mentioned that he can easily steal 25 bags if healthy... drop Aurilla! for kearns/ Burrell . you have Renteria and theres no way Aurilla would contribute anything significant to your team.
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

- alex sanchez (top-3 basestealer with pierre and crawford)

- pat burrell (return to 30/100 seems quite possible)\

- kearnsie (untapped potential, never healthy, jd drew redeux?)

- jose cruz (all-around spectacular mediocrity on tap)

- wilk (if he could do 20/85/15 he'd be a nice player who could play 1B/OF but he's unproven as of now)

-mora - ranked low just cuz he's named melvin
