Where to upgrade?

Postby phil » Wed Apr 23, 2003 11:32 pm

Any advice on strengths/weaknesses and possible trade bait to address any needs would be appreciated. I'm currently tied for 6th in an 8 team 5x5 roto league.

Well the obvious strengths of your team are OF and SP. With a plethera of both, that is definitely where to start looking to trade from. As for what to trade for, I would say clearly your weakness is your MI. Juan Gone clearly could get you a better SS, say a Renteria. Guzman just won't cut it, even for a backup. Even a better 3B. Hinske has been very slow so far, and although I'm sure he'll start to pull it out I don't think it will be as a good a season as his Rookie of the Year. You have a lot of quality arms, and that is another place to look at trading out. Peavy, Armas, Benson. All high stock that probably won't be as high for the rest of the year. If I could, I would package an OF and a good SP for a top tier 2B or 3B like a Kent/Chavez(he is hurt, nothing major but people might get worried.) OF I would trade Chipper, Juan Gone, keep Abreau, Damon, Kearns that is a really solid group. I know you have Jeter, so that will help a ton when he comes back. Hope I helped.
