2B: C. Utley
3B: D. Wright
SS: B.Crosby
OF: V. Guerrero
OF: V. Wells
OF: J. Bay
Util: D. Young

I'm looking to trade either Estrada or Pudge for some speed or some reliever help.

Any other comments/suggestions?

Trade or heck even waive Estrada. I never take more than one catcher. Just doesn't make sense to me. Get rid of Tsao. There have to be better players on the wire. Upgrade Wickman somehow if you can leave your team pretty untouched.

As I mentioned, I am in the process of trying to trade Estrada or Pudge. I don't normally carry 2 catchers either, but Estrada was still l there late, so I thought I would draft him as trade bait.

I drafted Tsoa because the last I heard was that he will be closing, and he was the last available closer (I'm looking for someone else to emerge at some point during the season or an upgrade through trade). Here are the other available relievers:

Ayala
Hermanson
Calero
Donnelly
Torres
And then maybe Kline or Riske.

i would get rid of Tsao, the saves he gets are not worth the rise in your ERA and WHIP. I would trade Estrada to upgrade speed or package him with another player for another decent closer.

I look at your lineup at the one thing that worries me is your 2b/SS/3B situation. Those are 3 guys that have some upside but are pretty much unproven in fantasy terms. I mean, Wright has the most upside in the group, but he's only played for 1/2 a year. You can say pretty much the exact same thing about Utley.

Crosby wasn't viable in fantasy last year and personally I don't forecast a huge bump in his #'s. And it would take a huge bump from his '04 numbers to have him starting in a 12 team league.

So I think you're taking a big gamble hoping that all 3 of these young guys are gonna improve enough in '05 to be valuable for you. Of course, you might be right. ;-D

If I were you, I'd probably play it a little more conservative and at least make a trade to get a more reliable fantasy SS. Just my opinion.
