where should I improve? Is my team set for the year?

Postby gabe » Mon Apr 26, 2004 5:06 am

Hi! I've got a lot of closers and I'm thinking about letting one go for a position player. Where should I upgrade? SS? Catcher?
Thank

I'd trade Derrek Lee for a good SP. You can then play Tino at 1B until Teix comes off the DL. I'd trade Zito and Graves for a top SP. I don't think Zito will be that good this year, and although it might be hard to trade him a few days after getting shelled, I still wouldn't want him. If you can get somebody like Schill/Pedro/Halladay/Wood for Zito and Graves, I'd do it in a second. Or even Santana, RJ or Beckett straight up for Zito. If you do that, you won't need to worry about trading Lee for another SP, which is the weakest part of your team IMO. So once you get that fixed up, your team looks pretty good.

Also, once Johnson gets back to normal, you might want to platoon him with Lieberthal, having CJ only play at Coors Field.

I'm planning on the catcher platoon. As far as Zito, I think I'll see what people will offer for him and Graves, but I'm going to wait on Lee, who I think might rock the summer. I appreciate it.

im thinking you may want to try and use a closer, and luis gonzalez to bring in one of the top outfielders. gonzalez can still produce, but his shoulder scares the life out of me.
