I like your team a lot. I think instead of going after a pitcher in FA you should maybe package one of the outfielders you have started now for a pitcher. I think Josh Hamilton will more then fill the void for whoever you send away. Very good team though.

Very nice job... to come away with Utley, Vlad and Braun picking out of the 7th spot in a 10 teamer was pretty darn good ;-D

At this point, I would look for a team with a sorry OF but stong pitching and see if you can't offer up Zambrano and Hamilton for an upgrade. You have some really good young pitchers and having a true ace with them would really seal the deal. Zambrano is on the way down (for 3 consecutive years now) and the innings on that arm has to take a toll. I just don't think he is going to improve.

actually, what are your picthing categories?

Even if you don't make a move, that is a great team!!

I agree with the others - your lineup is great!. I would drop Ervin for pretty much anything. I don't see him rebounding from his meltdown last season and even before his meltdown, his home/away splits really prevented owners from starting him for half of his games. I think your OF will be fine. I'm really high on Pence this year and I think Hart will post career numbers (I may be bias as a Brewers fan).

I tell you what, given those pitching categories, I would try to package Zambrano and an OF maybe to see if you could land Sabathia. CC has to be sick with those categories and Zambrano would certainly be "filling in" those negative categories. I doubt they will go for it but you never know unless you ask...

I just laughed again looking at that squad... good work
