I like your team. I agree your pretty stack at OF and Pitching. Im in agreement that you should work on trading either Jacobs or Dunn. Having both of them could really hurt your avg is my opinion, especially if one of your other guys are going through a bit of a slump. Jacobs is a career .265 hitter, his best year he hit .310 (but that was a short 30 game stint in 05 for the Mets) Dunn is a career .266 hitter, but at least you know he his gonna get his HRs in.

I would try and package Jacobs and a RP or an OF and try to get an upgrade at one of the IF positions, you could use an upgrade at CI or MI or even 2b/SS.

Thanks for the help with mine and good luck with yours!

Hey man thanks for the help

It looks like Batting Average is already a problem for you, so I would look to trade some of your OF for some infield and try to boost steals and BA at the same time. Dunn is going to produce for you so I wouldn't trade him away, but other than that I think you can spend some OF.

I like your team a lot. I don't particularly like Posada. He just never seems to put up numbers like people think he will and his health can be an issue too... I actually would prefer to start Navarro over Posada.

Your OF and Pitching are GREAT. I don't think you can get much better there. Im not so sure about Morales but he has a lot of hype and if he lives up to it then you will have a great overall team. You are short on SB but I wouldn't worry about it tooo much.

Thanks for the help with mine

I would try to move an OF for a MI. Look for someone with no OF and target some of his guys.

Hey there, thanks for the help! I totally agree with you, the only issue is that if I trade Dye for example, and I received a middle infielder with somewhat equal numbers, I would be left without a comparable outfielder so would i gain anything?

Morales is a solid pickup. I think BA is still your biggest weakness, and personally I hate guys like Dunn and Jacobs, so I'd look to trade some pitching (as its definitely your strength) to upgrade your IF. Youk was a great pick to help stabilize your average, but you waste his talents by having guys like Dunn and Jacobs and to a lesser extent Greene (270 avg roughly).

Find a Red Sox fanatic in your league(usually one) and have him overpay you for Dice-K. I'd love to have a Kendrick(Polanco)/Jeter(Furcal) type MI with this squad.

Have a good season.
