Beltran is a 30/30 candidate and you have decent pitching in Perez, Buehrle, Schmidt and Pineiro. I wouldnt trade Beltran.

I'd trade Beltran away for a better shortstop - by packaging Boone and Beltran you should be able to net Nomar or Tejada. And Beltran will be traded before August and any other park is going to hurt his stats tremendously. Trade him now. Or shortly after he gets off the dl.

Maybe trade Durazo for a decent ss. Somebody might think Durazo is gonna bust out this year, since he's gonna be DH and hitting in the middle of a potent lineup. You might get a decent steal for him.

I agree. Beltran would look nice as your utility player, and if you can get a decent upgrade at SS for Durazo, it would be well worth it. If you are intent on trading Beltran, I would urge you to wait until he comes back and proves that he is healthy. His value will be much greater healthy than it will be while he is on the DL...

Drop one of your legion of pitchers. There's no way you need that many bench pitchers, even with daily roster changes. You'll be over the innings limit in no time.

i'd make a nice package deal of austin kearns and matt clement (esp if he has a really good outing on monday) and see what i can get. many think that beltran is going to be a bust, however, if the royals end up a .500 squad behind this good start and some solid young pitching, i think sweeney, beltran, and ibanez will go to town. that rookie kid harvey can hit too... so maybe hold on to beltran.

as for kearnsie, i don't mean to diss the guy, but i'd think that his trade value is pretty high right now with the hot start. hey, the guy has the skills to hit 30 home runs, but even if he does after a trade, you'd still land a good pitcher early for that bonafide hitter, as opposed to waiting for the guy to prove himself and wasting starts from the pitcher.

also, if bellhorn takes off, i'd package in a hot pitcher like radke and try to upgrade to a better pitcher. experienced fantasy players are weary of the 2 lesser for 1 better trades, but since most people are playing this early in the season, and since the freak out possibilities are high, you might be able to upgrade via 2 for one before may rolls around.

give it a whirl.
