I think you got a great one with Sowers. He is a sleeper this year, but is poised to break out big. I saw several of his games while he was at Vanderbilt, he has some great stuff. I think you are generally doing very well in the hitting categories and starting pitching. One place you could afford to lose some strength is the outfield -- upgrading your situation at RP or 1B seems to be a "must" in my opinion.

I can play Swisher at 1st and Gozo may become a stud in teh future. This is a big year for him.
I am thinking of moving Manny for some help..Looking at Peavy.
I too like Sowers and think he and the Boof will have nice seasons.

Thanks for your help.

I think you can get more for Manny. Generally Hitters are worth more than pitchers because they play 150 games a season as opposed to 30.
