I have Tejada on my team and he's clutch. I'm in a salary cap league and he destroys Arod because of the difference in price. Anyway, Tejada should be able to get you Roy Oswalt. I personally am a huge Oswalt fan despite his slow start. He's young so he won't fade like Glavine, and personally lately I am a bit weary of Lowe holding up because the Red Sox are ready to fold any minute. I would say Padilla is a ? for durability but he may hold up nice as long as the Phillies produce for him. I am a Mulder fan but he just doesn't look like he has the pop he had last year. That is totally a personal preference issue. And I can almost guarantee you that Morris is on a slide any minute now. especially with the terrible loss of Kile. He's their workhorse but he doesn't have the strength to hold all of St. Louis. I also have problems with pitching in my league and look out for Minn's Johan Santana he might be a young ace, and Duckworth has produced now and again for me depending on who he faces. He helps with K's. I need help as well with pitching so you don't have to listen. Hope it helps..
Good advice from bliz34 (even if he predicts the Red Sox' demise ). While i don't know your other of options, I'd probably also shop Tejada before Ramirez, and Oswalt is a good target to aim for.
Don't pay too high a price for a starter, though - the addition of the Unit will already gain you a lot of points, and your waiver wire options aren't too shabby, especially if Benson is back at full strength.
Echo both Arlo and bliz34 here. Don't overdo the trades. If you traded offence to get the Unit and you trade more offence you may be robbing Peter to pay Paul here. How big is your saves lead? Maybe a lesser offensive player and a closer like escobar who has some risk may be a better choice.
I like Mulder to come back in the second half and he's likely to cost you less.
Tejada is a nice player - need to get one heck of an arm back.
How about offering Phelps, and seeing whether you can pick up a solid starter that way? Consider adding Alou if it helps, since you'll need to free a roster spot anyway. You probably won't want to carry three catchers anyway, and this could be a true sell-high trade.
Not sure if crazya's post has anything to do with the question, but congrats on being in 1st!
