P. Greinke, Carlos Zambrano, AJ Burnette, Garland Guardado Takatsu Penny Brazelton, Horacio Ramirez

the only weakness I see in your team is in the starting pitching..but your team looks good

trade away Konerko for an upgrade in that area since you have Pujols and Sweeney

how many starters and closers do you have to start a week?

Well, gee, talk about Russian Roulette. Are you putting your money on red or black? ;-) If you spot start like that for a small amount of innings like that, then one or two bad outings and you can kiss that week's pitching stats goodbye.

Unless you start two players at every position or something, I would highly recommend trading some of those "backup" players for starting pitching ASAP. :-)

One thing I don't understand is how you managed to hang onto first place with pitching like that. Perhaps you could enlighten us as to the juicy details? :-)

I agree with the previous post- if one of your top SP's gets hurt (penny/c zam) you are going to get hammered in the pitching cat. I would definately trade a back up bat for another solid SP.

Would you look at my thread too- http://fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/v ... hp?t=77902

First off thank everybody for the replies and advice. Second I will tell you how I stayed in first this long I agree that my pitching is week but its not like i send out minor leaguers every week. I do play a game of russian roulette with spot starting but if i hit that loaded chamber and my choice of pitcher gets shelled I always can start the other ones. I also agree i need to trade for some arms but the league I am in greatly over values pitching which could be the answer to your question why I am in first place with my offense the way it is I can vulture two or three pitching categories every week and win
