Help me out here. I've got a good infield. I'm weak in the outfield. but in drafting that was a choice to make over starting pitching. I don't have steals either. Any suggestions? I'm in an 8 team league. THANKS!

I don't think your outfield is that weak. Get Jones off of the bench and put him in for Edmonds, he may not start the season. If he is able to start, put Jones in for Winn, he should not be on your bench, IMO....

Hey Dude...

I really don't think your problem is your OF. You have a mediocre 1B at best, and 2 stud rp's. If I were you, I would try to package Konerko and Benitez for an upgrade at 1B to someone like Sweeney and a more unheralded RP. My reasoning? Well, in my neck of the woods, rp's are equal to about 17% of wins, 15% era, and 100% of saves. Having two elite rp's is the equivalent of drafting 2 Russell Branyans because of his hr prowess. I guess what I'm trying to say is that a player who only contributes significantly in one category shouldn't be overvalued by a player who contributes in 4 out of 5. Good luck

I didn't think Konerko was THAT bad. Does anyone else agree that I should trade Benitez? I was worried about speed and was hoping to pick that up in the outfield.

Is all else ok?

Thanks, again...

I agree your OF is respectable. I'd think about trading some combination of Edmonds, Konerko, Benitez, or even Rolen (last resort) for some more speed.
