First year of fantasy bb...

3B Á. Rodríguez
SS M. Tejada
CI M. Mora
MI É. Rentería

Obviously I need some help with pitching. Who should I look at trading to pick up the pitching I need? What changes do I need to make? Please be as honest as possible, you are not going to offend this newb.

For your team, instead of having some one like borowski I would rather take a chance on a top Reliever like Juan Rincon or even B. McCarthy. McCarthy might even have the chance to start and he's been pitching very well. Rincon is just nasty period. I would drop Clemens because they say he's coming back but you don't know when. That's just my opinion. I hope that helps.

Lots of gambles there on your team..It could be really good or really bad.

I would try to move Pierre for some power, or a really good pitcher. Find someone who needs steals and try to move him now.

I agree with The Dude here, move some steals for some pitching. I'm not sure you need more power but you definatly could use the pitching help and with Damon, Ichiro and Beltran you should be competative in steals. I also agree with Deeznutz, lose Clemens and get some one that can help you now. ... p?t=186222
