Must be a deep deep league. Yes, your SP is rough. Schmidt, Harden and Eaton are your 123 guys... RP is looking solid. You need some speed.

Hope that Maggs starts off really hot and then trade him for a guy who can get you some bags...

How many team?

Hold your breath on the injury front. Mauer is supposively having trouble with the same knee that was operated on last year, so you might want to watch for a back-up catcher. Keep an eye on the Buck kid from KC. He's capable of 25 HR's if he comes around.

Thomas, Maggs, and Preston Wilson are huge injury risks, but if they stay healthy, you're sitting in good shape. Mora is a stud at 3rd. Good thing K's aren't a category for hitters or Dunn would single-handedly put you in the basement. He's liable to hit 50 HR's but with a .240 average. Make sure you keep a couple good hitters (for average) nearby to offset Dunn if he does like he did last year.

The starting pitching you do have is good with Schimdt and Harden, but you need a bit more. Keep an eye on Tony Armas Jr, Runelvys Hernandez, and possibly Scott Kazmir. If either of the 3 start out hot, jump on 'em.

Pretty good team as a whole. How many teams are in the league?

12 teams....

I've since traded Jose Uribe for Kevin Millar....

....and I just ok'd a trade....I gave up Mariano Rivera for David Wright AND Guillermo Mota...

....and I picked up Luis Vizcaino..

I don't think I'll ever win the win category....My philosophy is to be strong in 6 categories, and at least adequate in 4  others....If I can go 7-5 or better every week, that will get me in the playoffs...but I do need another SP....I've been offered a very good one for Nathan, but with my dearth of closers, I'm going to play it out for three weeks and see how the injury thing goes in Spring Training and see what gets offered (there's a couple of teams that have next to nothing in RP.

 Util   Lu. Gonzalez (Ari - OF)

 BN   D. Young (Det - 1B)   

 Pos   Pitchers   
 SP   Ol. Perez (Pit - SP)       
 RP   B. Lidge (Hou - RP)            
 P   R. Oswalt (Hou - SP)          
 P   R. Halladay (Tor - SP)

 P   D. Lowe (LAD - SP)    
 BN   J. Pineiro (Sea - SP)

 BN   J. Cruz (Oak - RP)            
 BN   C. Reitsma (Atl - RP)   
 BN   R. Mahay (Tex - RP)      

Got Beltran at 7 overall and somehow or another, David Ortiz in the frickin' 5th round (55th overall pick). 

I'm working on getting another closer and starter, but it might cost more than I'm willing to pay right now. 

I'll compete in everything but steals (pfft!).

Matt, your pitching bench looks like the closer-in-waiting list!  You could always hope that Winn suddenly starts stealing a lot of bases. I like the end of your rotation.

Windy you could trade one of those closers for a stud starter, straight up, and not hurt yourself. You may be in a position to trade someone like Hillenbrand for a mid-range steals guy at some point. I love the position flexibility!

I traded some of the hitting for more pitching:

Gave up:




Might have overpaid, but I have enough pitching now that I can swap it for offense later when/if it becomes necessary.
