    drop youklis and pick up blalcok. definetly pick up hernandez. Most people don't have a good catcher and you can use him as trade bait for a pitcher. Drop Lofton, and pick up Monroe. Monroe offers much better stats, is younger, won't platoon unlike Lofton and plays for detroit. drop DeRosa and add Aurilia. Aurilia has better average, RBI and qualifies at first which DeRosa does not. Find some way to get LaRoche. I know he's doing horrible, but he will heat up and be a great steal for you. Starting pitching a little weak and so are regular pitchers. you need one more good starter and outfielder. Overall 6.5/10, I predict 5th or 6th place in your league. (this means you'll make the playoffs which isn't bad for a rookie manager.)

    You have pretty good hitting for a 12 h2h team, but brad hawpe and kenny lofton don't seem that great. However, your pitching staff needs some work (no top-quality throwers). Maybe try to trade for some better hurlers. I'd give your team a 6.5 out of 10, and you might end up somewhere above the middle.

    once you're making up a stupid question you sould attempt to undergo in ideas that some individuals that are smarter than you will study it. there isn't any way which you would be able to desire to draft Utley, A-Rod, Reyes, and Howard, all 1st around options. then you definately upload Oswalt and Peavy, a pair of 2d and third rounders. Why do not you basically flow decrease back and attempt to create a greater life like team and ask the question returned.

    other than 3rd base try to work on the outfield its a little weak. other than that maybe some minor pitching work i say 7.2 its a 5 or 6 place team

    Pick up Yadier Molina at catcher. He is going to have an outstanding year.
