8 team league, h2h, 5x5

c- Lopez
1b- Sexson
2b- Roberts
ss- Renteria
3b- Blaylock
of- Guerrero, Abreu, Cabrera
util- Hunter
bench- Hafner, M. Giles
sp- Oswalt, Sheets (dl), Peavy, Halladay, Willis, Penny, Morris, Lieber
rp- Rodriquez, Mota (dl), Wickman

I feel like this team can contend all season. I'm strong in all 5 offensive categories and all pitching areas but saves. With only 8 teams in the league, some other teams have 4-5 closers, but few have as deep a group of starters.

Sheets and Mota will be coming off the dl soon, and I'll have to drop somebody. I've been able to hold an extra player all year due to Penny's injury at the start of the season.

I'm not sure who to drop. It's got to be a pitcher. I think Wickman. He's done well, but the others have more potential for a full seaon IMO. This would mean generally punting saves most weeks, but I think it's the way to go.

The only alternatives I see are Mota, Morris, Penny or Leiber. What do you think? Do you see an area that needs help? I would consider looking into a 2 for 1 trade for a stud, but I don't want to mess with the team too much.

Morris or Lieber. Wickman maybe once Mota comes back. Your team looks real good.

I'll only need to drop one. The problem is I think there's no reason why Leiber and Morris can't put up 15 wins this season. Wickman's done well. but I'm not sure I can project 35 saves. And, I'm not that competitive in saves with him.

Why Morris or Lieber over Penny?

I'd drop Lieber or Penny. Morris' ratios look terrific so far and he looks like the old Matt Morris from a few years ago. I wouldn't be surprised to see him with better numbers than Mulder across the board.
