Here is his roster.

Think I should make a trade?

Also, forgive me if I am missing some information... I am not sure what a 5x5 roto is or what keeper and non-keeper is exactly.

i wouldnt trade him wright, as i dont see anything you guys could work very easily to do that.

for an auto draft you didnt do bad at all IMO.your OF is a little weak but miggy,miggy, and dwright on the infield is very nice. you have a nice balance of power and speed with taveras and hanley, and figgins once he returns.

your pitching looks decent too, even though im not sold completely on king try to maybe package felix and someone on offense for a better starter there, as people seem to really like him.

also id start martin over varitek.

ok ill list...first off not to bad of a team....but....

1. Biggio should in no way or form be your starting 2B, that is one position you DEF. need to upgrade...

2. you must have pre-ranked? or else it was a weird draft, to end up with 2 guys in the top 3 to 5 at their respective positions is WEIRD (miggy cab, wright and miggy tejada and hanley)

3. i would NOT trade david wright unless you were able to upgrade at another position, and looking at the other guy's team he can't really help you...

4. i would most surely try to move one of your RP, maybe combo say benitez or dotel with biggio and see if you can upgrade on biggion, i wouldn't ask for all that much as you won't get too much for that, but try it anyways, cuz you have no need to carry 4 closers..


5. you are loaded at 3B and SS which will be great in your favor...

6. for an auto pick your SP really isn't the worst you could have done, Lackey, king Felix and Haren are all 3 studs, and the new look for lilly will help him a bunch...not to mention mussina as a #5...

7. your team will produce big time power numbers with richiesex, miggy, miggy, wright, dunn, swisher, hanley, chavo and willingham, i don't for see any of those hitting under 20 HR which is huge for you...

8. i agree start martin over varitek, and i would possibly try moving Varitek...

all around once figgins comes back you will be very well rounded on the O and your staff is no slump either...few minor tweaks and you will have it...hope this helps!!
Great thanks to soto for the sweet sig!...

I am not a Sexson fan and I would not have him as a starter on my team. With that said if you could get Morneau + Matsui/Damon/Kendrick I would think about trading Wright. For a autodraft I think you have an outstanding pitching staff. Don't be to mad about getting The Rocket.
