Definitely don't trade Maddux, because what you're missing on is starting pitching. Make a trade of Burnitz for some SP if you can.

getting rid of burnitz doesn't sound like a good idea right now. Hold on to your better hitters and trade them later.

Young would make a decent 3B, but there are still two good 3Bs out there. Look at Hinske and Ensberg.

Hinske: (R, HR, Rbi, SB, avg)
2002 Tor 99, 24, 84, 13, .279
2003 Tor 74, 12, 63, 12, .243
This is a classic sophmore slump. He will exceed his rookie numbers (2002) this season.

This is what ESPN had to say about him:
"Ricciardi signed Hinske to a five-year, $14.75 million contract after his rookie campaign. Will 2003 prove to be an injury-induced sophomore slump, or a sign of more tumbling to come? More than likely, Hinske's bat will rebound, especially in the power department. His defense may be another matter, but he'll be starting at third base."

Ensberg: (R, HR, Rbi, SB, avg)
2003 Hou 69, 25, 60, 7,.291 in 385 at bats
This time he is going to the season as the starter.

ESPN said:
"Ensberg's hitting is his forte, but he's a slow starter. Knowing that, the club platooned him the first month of the season intentionally trying to bring him along slowly. He caught fire in May and June, hitting .321 and .328, respectively, and though he tailed off considerably in July and August, he came back strong in September. He's a power-hitter and a pull-hitter who hits mostly to left field. Enberg's defense is average. He has a strong arm, but his range is limited and his reactions ordinary. He's also an average baserunner."

Just something to consider....
