First I am going to say NOT to do that sosa deal. You need Pujuls for 3rd base and you have a solid OF. I say to move Sexton to 1st and pujols to 3rd and put mondesi in you're utility spot.

I give your team a 7 out of ten basicly for your offence. You're pitching is scary though

Pick up Steve Kline and drop Karsay. Karsay is set up man and on DL he will not help your team much. Kline is filling in for Isrinhausen who is on the DL.. In some leagues if u change isringhausen to DL u can pick up another player.

Grab Kevin Brown, Johan Santana, Jeff Weaver, Tomo Ohka, Brad Radke, Johan Santana or Mike Hampton if available.

Also see if Braden Looper is available he is a closer unknwon by many.

I'd also reccomend you drop a couple pitchers. Kenny Rogers and Tim Worrell ... make sure u get 1 of those SP if available and I'd look at grabbing an extra outfielder for injury relief.

Check for Karim Garcia or Mark Teixiera or Rocco Baldelli. Baldelli and Teixiera may not be available yet but keep an eye out cuz they will be great additions to any team when they are.

And forget about Sosa. You have a strong outfield. Pujols will do you much better anyway and you need him at 3rd base.
If you get Teixiera move pujols to 1st and start Teixera at 3rd.

Also I'd switch Varitek for Charles Johnson if available. He's in a hitters park now and may put on a decent show this year.

One more thing, if Rich Aurillia or Omar Vizquel is available, I'd drop Cabrera and grab em!!!

GL in your league... hope you enjoy it. The more you keep an eye on players the better you can build your team.

Thanks for the guidence!

I put Sexson at 1B, Pujols at 3B, picked up Charles Johnson and Karim Garcia.
Pitching still a rough spot, but not much help out there.
Oh... and I turned down the Sosa for Pujols deal.
Thanks again!

Don't drop tim worrell until nen is back... your pitching is bad ..keep an eye on tigers Bonderman. many people are saying grat things about this rookie . he is pitching today and probably will be available.

Man your staff is old... go see if Gaylord Perry is available.

first- youve got great hitting, but unforunatly it balances out with poor pitching, you may have to trade a quality OF just to get a SP with a good CL....but you wont get anywhere with pitching like that (if its a head to head league)
