Saying that you drafted for the future is an understatement. You dont' have a single player who is a legit star RIGHT NOW!! Ryan Zimmerman is the closest thing you have to a reliable vet. None of these guys are great yet, they're all average and taking their lumps on their way to greatness. It's not really a surprise that you're in last.

You've got a ton of player who will be good in a year or two. If you want to improve your team this year, you've got no choice but to trade. Otherwise... be patient and wait until these young guys turn into stars... in 2010.

Yeah, you're stuck there with way too much youth. The problem is I dont think many people will trade with you with a huge minor league farm system in this league. They have their youth where it should be: the minors! You're just not going to get value right now in trading your top players away. I think you're in rebuilding mode!

My suggestion is to sell high on any prospect you can. For example, if you had Cueto, sell high after the first 2 starts. People were getting Sabathia for Cueto. You could probably get a few great players who are struggling that way.

One bit of advice, find a place for Yunel Escobar in the lineup. He's been tearing it up!
