Um, I'm not to sure about Boone, if you mean Arron Boon. When he played 3rd base for the yankee's he was terrible (despite that home run in the 13th inning against Bosten). More errors then I've ever seen. Unless he's improved greatly, don't bother.

I'd definetly pick up Beltre im surprised he didn't get drafted...people seem to forget about his incredible 2004. I think he'll bounce back this year.

I'd also look to improve the infield a bit, Loretta and Renteria are great players in real life, but don't give you much fantasy value. Loretta batted .335 just two years ago, but still doesn't get any homers/RBI.

I'd also look to get another good starting pitcher, and definetly drop Mussina, he's totally done. Maybe you saw him give up 10 Runs in 4 innings a few days ago. Trade him to a Yankee fan who thinks he's still good.

Actually, the guy dropped Beltre.

Those are just suggestions and people that I thought I would put on my watch list.

I could trade a closer for another starter or MI. But, which do I trade and for who?

Guys, thanks for all the suggestions.

I did get Beltre on waivers. Weeks is still available but I like Loretta this year so I am going to try him out for right now.

I will probably drop Backe for a different starter, just need to find out who.

I am also thinking of trading a closer for some more power. Does anyone have suggestions on who I should trade and who I should target?

Thanks,
JR
