I agree with everybody on cutting Ellsbury and Neshek. On your MLB roster, it would be a toss up between Chavez and Zumaya personally. I don't think Chavez will ever be the same.

First of all, no way I would dump Lackey - that wasn't a very good suggestion. Personally, I'd get rid of Zumaya. Yup, he's nasty and could be a sick closer, but he is a middle reliever in 2007. If you are in love with Zoom's potential, dump Chavez. His numbers are not trending in the right direction.

As for your Minor league team, get rid of Pedrioa and Neshek.

Rowell, Snider, Erbe and Adenhart have stud potential and Ellsbury could be a good source of steals and runs in a few years.

5. Neshak
6. Snider(who is this guy?)

A middle relief guy like Neshak will easily be available in the draft, and your theory on keeping Pedroia for his obp, at the expense of arguably your best prospect is off-base. Drop Pedroia, and I am almost positive he will be there at the third pick. I am also sure you coul dfind someone else at that spot who might be more appealing as well.....he has limited upside, and last year, he looked thoroughly overmatched at the big league level.

Snider is better than Ellsbury IMO. He has big time potential and could be in the top 10 for prospects at the end of the season.

I would say drop Zumaya. He might play too much guitar hero in the off season and get elbow tendinitis. :-)

No seriously, Zumaya's role is still unclear and he may not offer as much immediate value as some of the others. Drop him.

Minor league squad- drop ellsbury. He could very well be moved to a team like Florida. Boston will most likely make a run at Andruw Jones to be their CF of the future. Also drop Neshek. MR are easier to find in the draft and are quite unpredictable.

I would dumpr either Zumaya or Lackey from your ML squad. Lackey is over-rated and could be the SP the Angels move for a big bat. Zumaya won't help you much in 2007 and is only a RP. You will be able to get him back in the draft. If you dump Chavez you will regret it.

On your minor league squad you should dump Rowell and Ellsbury. Both are not needed as you are set in CF and Chavez is still young an will cover 3B for you for a long time.
