Take a look at this roster. I love Thome, but his K's and wrist/thumb are making me nervous, even though he is a notoriusly slow starter. I think I need one more stud SP. Do I trade Thome, or who else? What does this team need?

1B J. Thome (Phi - 1B)

you definately need another SP. its just a matter of time before thome gets things going, i have him on my team as well. youre not going to get as much as you can if you trade him now. wait til he cranks a few hrs and then trade him if thats what you want to do. dont do any panic moves though, overall your team looks pretty good

You look to have a prettty good team. Id say your biggest weakness is a 3rd OFer. Mike Cameron, Matt Lawton, and Ford in the 3rd and UT slot wont get the job done. But the rest of your offense is quite solid so the problem doesnt HAVE to be addressed. Another big SP would be an amazing addion. If you could swing a trade for a guy like Oliver Perez, or someone else that is starting slow, your team will feel the positive effects throughout the season. Overall good team.

Any ideas for me? ... p?t=113445
