maybe, but not as much as you may think. you have a middle of the pack power lineup. francoeur will put up good hr totals. the only positions where you could add more power would be 1b and ss. ss never has much power, so i would focus on 1b. helton's power is regressing. i would wait a while and trade a hot pitcher for a 1b (fielder, laroche, sexson, sheffield).

please take a look at my post: ... p?t=262216

Like the previous post said, it's not that bad, but it's definitely not that good either. You'll likely end up somewhere in the middle to the bottom half in HRs in a standard 5x5 league. The nice thing is you have Utley at 2B which helps make up for shortcomings in HRs at other positions.

Helton is pretty worthless. I'd be suprised if you couldn't find or trade for someone better at 1B.

I would say that this team is in need of an Adam Dunn or an Andruw Jones. You should be fine in steals and batting average though. ... p?t=261811

I think you have plenty of power. Maybe watch the WW for an emerging power guy, but I wouldn't trade for one.

I wouldn't mind seeing an upgrade at 1B. I'm not big on Helton this year, so I think you could add a power upgrade there.

Good luck, and please help me! ... p?t=262174
