i seem to be taking chances on alot of players that were disappointments in 2009, but i think they bounce back in 2010. ive let i be known that Pujols is availabe, would like to trade him in a package for another top tier 1B and an upgrade somewhere else. anywhere i need help? (i think i would like someone else with 3B eligibility) leave a link, WHIR

+1 on Blanks. The way your team is set up could lead you to great success this season. You have your solid hitters and stud pitchers, then you took a chance on some bounce-backers (Quentin, Liriano) and some up and comers (Blanks, Fowler, Wood.) You have a very solid talent base on this team, and if the stars align your way you could have a very competitive year.
Do yourself a favor and wait until atleast late May before you really consider trading Albert, unless he gets hurt his value will always be there. Like others have said, you have alot of high upside guys here and even if only a couple of them pan out, you can do some serious damage with this team. If all of these guys bust and you are starting to fall behind in late May/early June, thats when you should start taking offers on Pujols. There is no need to trade the best hitter in baseball if you don't need to, he is the guy that will carry you down the stretch at the end of the season. You also can't be too shy on giving up on the guys you are taking chances on, if they are playing bad for awhile(I usually give them until mid-late May) just cut them loose and pick up the hottest guy on waivers.
Don't trade Albert unless you can get a Longoria+Votto type of deal....Your team looks really solid if Davis/Wood break out. If not you're gonna have a big hole at 3B. You might haveAVG problems with Davis/Cruz/ECab/Rollins/Blanks all in your starting lineup. Too many guys that could hit .250 or worse IMO.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
