I'm surprised how similar all your teams are...I really like the rotations. Prior, Harden and Perez will all do good things this year, Zambrano could be up there with Prior. The only thing I always question about Cubs pitchers now is the Baker factor, but I thought Zambrano will hold up. Good RPs. Offense is different though. Kendall is solid at a thin position, and Mueller isn't a bad choice for 2nd base, but you definitely could upgrade on the corners. Jason Bay will have a solid second year, but you should be able to upgrade over Koskie, Wilkerson, and McPherson (who I don't know much about). I might consider trading SP for power hitting. I'd hang on to Crosby, he's a fine SS to have.

These teams are terrible..

Abreu is the only hitter you have thats worth anything. You have really nothing to trade...

You have more starting pitching than you need, in my opinion. Trade one or two of your stud starters and get some hitting. You could use hitting upgrades pretty much all around.
