Hey Dude...

I actually like your IF, with the exception of today's posting about Glaus and his wrist injury...could be big problem. Marrero will shine about as much as any 2nd tier C would, and that will suffice, as he doesn't have the rigors of playing everyday behind the plate, hence his stats, and his body, will wear a lot better than a Piazza. I would also be very concerned with your OF, as Wells is the only certifiable "mini-stud" I would be starting. Encarnacion would be a nice 4th OF, and Millar, well, he'll be lucky to get 350 ab's in Boston with that quagmire. I would recommend one of two things:

1. Try to trade Dunn for a Preston Wilson type OF, who will get some sb's and hit a ton of hr's in colorado, (projected stats-.262, 35 hr, 90 rbi, 15 sb's and maybe a 3rd tier rp, who can get you some cheap saves, like Jimenez, or even Embree in Boston, who slid on a lot of people's radar)

2. If your league is very trade-prohibitive because they love & overvalue their team, take a shot at plugging Klesko at 1B, then moving Huff to your CI spot, and trading Dunn for at least 1 for 1 for another OF. Good luck, you'll need it

IF = 8.2
OF= 4.5
SP= 8.5
RP= 8.0
P= 5.0
Which way did he go? Which way did he go?

I agree you may want to trade for some OF help. You may have some flexibility in that Dunn could play there, and in many leagues Klesko too. As was said, Huff can take the 1B/Corner spot. I'd look at some of these combinations to get another quality OF.
