I have mediocre pitching. My draft went pitching early, which I refused to do.....and I saw all of the closers go in the top 8 rounds, along with most of the starting pitching. I decided to just draft hitters, punt saves if needed, and draft pitching in the last 8-9 rounds. How did I do? Does this trade work or should I cancel it? Does my pitching staff have a reasonable chance in this league?

I like the lineup, but you have to trade one of the big bats for a top ten SP. Maybe Dunn, and plug Tracy in to that OF spot. Something like that. It would definately stabilize your pitching. Float Dunn or Bay out there and see who offers up the best sp. ... p?t=174665

Dangle Hafner around the trading block and see what ace you can get for him... somebody will want his bat.

I'm a fantasy newbie, but I have to agree with the above posts; you should be able to spare a bat for some better pitching. I think if you traded Hafner, you already have a decent Utility player in Chad Tracey. If you can get an ace, I would jump on that.

All that being said, I am a newbie to this game (and to posting on this forum) so take it for what it is.

Very solid offense. I would look to release Mora and someone else to get a solid starting pitcher, because that is where you are lacking. And Chad Tracy is soon 3B eligible, and I like him to outperform Mora.
