I would put Pujols on the block and see if an owner in your league has a man-crush on him and will overpay. In my league (which is a keeper league), an owner just traded Berkman/Beltran/Barfield/Bedard/Liriano to another owner for Pujols. So he got a solid replacment for Pujols, a top 10 OFer in any format, a huge upgrade at 2B (he had Burke), an ace for this year AND an ace for next year... Crazy stuff - if you can pull off a robbery like that, do it.

I think Cano and Rolen are two very over-rated players. I personally would also try to move them too. Package them together for Utley if possible! (it won't be, but try anyways). I also think Wells is overrated but love Rollins/Cuddyer/Holliday/Hafner! Scary offense! Your pitching needs help though, and like myself you lost Ryan for a while and will probably need to address your staff before his return. One true ace starter (Schilling doesn't fit the bill anymore, Haren doesn't fit it yet) and your team should cruise. Good luck.

Your hitting is awesome. I would look to upgrade at SP. I would try to package a SP and maybe an OFer for an upgrade at SP.

ur in last cuz ur team flat out sucks, lol jk. your offence is great but pitchin a lil weak. I to think Rolen is overated. Overall good team, and just wait it out, they will perform. It doesnt help tht Pujols is suckin now. Once he turns it around u should move up tht leaderboard. For example, this team in are league team was sucking the first 2 weeks and was in 11th out of 12 after two weeks and now he is in 2nd behind me :-) All i can say is be patient
