The owner who previously had my team finished 17th, so I was able to nab the 3rd pick in the minors draft. That guy me Elvis Andrus (missed out on Weiters who was the top pick). I was pretty happy about that.

I'm thinking Riske might close, which would be huge, but you know... that's um... Risky at best. There's plenty of closers that the Brew crew could sign or trade for. I recently grabbed Jason Schmidt. Kind of wondering what the deal is with him. The Dodgers seem to think he'll be healthy for 2009, but he's like the original Mark Prior, so who knows with him. Best case scenerio, I get one of those big pitchers with the strikeouts that you guys mentioned, worse case I lose my 25th keeper basically.
bananaphone wrote:Steve, I was thinking about trading Tejada myself, but I was really hesitant to. I realize his value has declined the past couple of years, but to me he's still a pretty solid shortstop (I may be overvaluing him too). I do have Burriss, but he's still questionable to me, and I got him as a backup. At the time i was really short on speedy guys, and he was cheap, filled a need the team had. I was thinking that speedy guys would do a bunch of categories too. Less double plays, more total bases, and of course stolen bases. One of the teams in the league was looking to trade for a shortstop, and had Clint Barmes who he could give in return. I'm thinking maybe if I trade Tejada to him, I could get a decent pitcher along with Barmes. He had pretty nice numbers last year, and should start at either short or third with Atkins going, and Tulo being rather questionable.
