I would say Eric Young is a weak point, Mondesi is headed towards some slowing down, Burrell has been down right ugly, and your relivers could use some improvement ;-D
Good luck....

Your relievers are mediocre at best, and you have three firstbasemen. Find some team that doesn't have a good UT guy and trade away Thome or Olerud for a quality arm. Or move Pujols to 3B and trade Glaus for someone (Thome is better). As for free agents, who's left in a league that must be awfully big?

Good offense, I like the concept of having Pujols and another top 3B, it weakens other teams and might make them desperate to trade big for a 3B. However, you should upgrade pitching. Perhaps try and trade Glaus and Borowski for Halladay and a better closer. Then you can move Pujols to third, Thome to first, and play the hot hand at util

i'm canning eric young and picking up frank cattalanotto as a free agent. and i'm getting Rocco Baldelli as a free agent. i found a team w/ a weak 3B and offered Troy Glaus for Bret Boone. and i offered Ismeal Valdes for Eddie Guardado. i know that last trade isnt very fair, but this guy ended up with 6 guys w/ 15+ saves. and his highest # of wins with a starter is 4. so, i'm hopin to get a steal of a deal there. neither trade is a done deal yet. i'm pretty sure i'll work somethin out for a closer though. let me know what you think of these moves.

i am surprised on the pitchers you drafted. Glavine doesn't look like he will get his stuff straightened, and Colon isn't doing what he is expected to do, but your hitters are pretty good, yes, eric young needs to be replaced, and i would trade thome for a big 2B, maybe kent or bret boone. you also need some saves, so try to get a good closer, if you can get a wagner or williams that would help too.
