You could use a better OF, but it might be best to do as recommended above. See how Burell, Beltran, Ordonez, etc. play out.

Another option would be to take a risk and see if you can't trade Beltran for a nice package. Don't get me wrong, I like Beltran, but if you could move him for a H. Matsui + another workable OF that might turn out well for you.

Is Dye available in your league? He's one player I think is getting a bit overlooked this year. Nothing spectacular, but could get you good OF numbers without costing much. You are relying on two rookies in your OF, which worries me. If you could get Dye without giving up very much, I'd go for it. He'll produce numbers that will do you just right. I'd move Harang for him in a heartbeat.

Any thoughts on my team?

This team looks good. Schmidt is the question mark here. But, as you know, I drafted him in an important role on my team too. I can see Gathright replacing Ordonez in the lineup soon. Nice job getting Escobar and Cabrera. Along with them, I'm taking a chance with Bedard and Olly Perez as cheap SPs. Thanks for your help.
