What would you make of this?

The advice you guys give rules, I am new to FB but this so much fun!

So I am in a 8 team league and so far there has been very little trade offers but I have seen some players on FA and Waivers and I wondered if I should pick em up. Here is my line up first:


C Hernandez, Ramon
C Perez, Eddie
1B Delgado, Carlos
2B Alomar, Roberto
3B Hillenbrand, Shea
SS Garciaparra, Nomar
LF Ramirez, Manny
CF Edmonds, Jim
RF Millar, Kevin
OF Floyd, Cliff
OF Winn, Randy
OF Nixon, Trot
IF Ventura, Robin
IF Valentin, Jose
IF Bell, David
Bench Konerko, Paul
Bench Roberts, Dave

SP Martinez, Pedro
SP Lowe, Derek
SP Moyer, Jamie
SP Weaver, Jeff
SP Ohka, Tomo
RP Mendoza, Ramiro
RP Baez, Danys
P Burkett, John
P Stewart, Scott
P Urbina, Ugueth
Bench Burnett, A.J.
Bench Karsay, Steve
Bench Lopez, Rodrigo

I feel like I need a catcher badly and Konerko, Valentin, Bell, Roberts, Stewart, and Karsay feel like dead weight. Am I over reacting? I have tried to be patient. Here are some players on FA and Waivers I was thinking of trying to pick up: Brad fullmer, Cesar Izturis, Zach Day, Jake Peavy

Would you try to trade for Posada? If so what should I offer? I also want J.Damon but he is smokin and I dont want to give a left arm for him.. ok I do but...

I appreciate your thoughts guys!

You're right - a catching upgrade would help. Posada would be nice, but I'd definitely check the waiver wire first; you might find a Mayne or an Ausmus there. I'd probably be more concerned about your relief corps now than about your backstops, at least if saves matter in your league. Definitely keep Stewart for now - Montreal may ease him into the closer's role again soon, although this isn't really clear yet. Adding another closer would be huge.

I'd be patient with Konerko, but if you see better options than Valentin or Bell, go ahead and grab them. If steals matter, I'd keep Roberts, too - he can give you a huge boost off the bench. Karsay is probably expendable as well, although that depends on your league specifics.

And yes, it is a whole lot of fun! Best of luck! ;-D
