To start, you need a C. Why didn't you pick one up. How many DLs are you allowed to have, drop Ollie, he's been horrible. Forget Bonds who knows when he'll come. I think your waiting on your players instead of picking up some role players. You have awesome hitters and should start to excell when Schmidt and Vazquez start to get back in form. Maybe drop Dempster for K. Farnsworth or A.Reyes or C.Hammond.

Overall-7.5/10 maybe an 8/10.

You have an all-star team there. Very good, even for a 10-teamer where most teams are good.
It would appear that injuries have killed you, as they tend to do in H2H, but you really don't have a lot of guys to drop outright. Be patient. You'll be sitting pretty for the playoffs.

I agree though Javy is good you need someone better than him. You have hitting out the butt, but Javy isn't going to give you the 2nd half stats that Ivan Rodriguez, Jason Varitek, Paul Lo Duca, and Joe Mauer try picking up one of those guys and 1 or 2 more decent pitchers and then I think you will have a good shot ;-D . And I also agree that you should drop Bonds and Perez Bonds might not come back to play baseball again and Perez is not all he is worked up to be. I would suggest a trade using, Oliver Perez, Corey Patterson, and/or Joe Nathan like I did the other day for Kenny Rogers.

obviously you need a catcher, you don't have another one on your roster, other than that, I think you've got some guys that started out slow and are currently picking up the pace so sit back and them do their thing
