That was the plan, the starters I have look solid enough but if they need help there are always favorable matchups to exploit.
[quote="Surrender2theYankees"]Your offense is pretty good. I would put in Kelly Johnson instead of Pedroia as your starting 2b always.
KJ and Peds are interchangable and if both get too hot I can use one for tradebait.
You also might want to find some steals, your team is definitely lacking speed.
Upton will run more this year, but you're right, steals are light on my team.
Also, for your pitching, you need some better middle relievers too. Holds is one of the categories, but you're not addressing it.
Since they haven't determined a closer in Chicago and Atlanta yet, Wood and/or Soriano could be that holds guy. In which case I'm fairly well covered. If not then they'll be big saves guys which again could be trade bait if I need help somewhere else. Middle relief guys seem to appear after the season gets going.
Thanks for all the input, I hope my input helps you too.
Any word on playing time this season for Bruce? I know Dusty is gunshy with the young kids and his position is deeply stocked right now, but I'm hoping he gets some action.
