    sometimes waiting it out is a good strategy, and it prevents you from making regrettable knee-jerk decisions. but with what you have right now, the longer you wait, the further (i think) you are to fall behind. i don't see this as a top-3 team in a 9-team league.

    being in a 9-teamer (which i am in as well), there has to be some talent on the waiver wire. i'd dump Lowe yesterday, and probably replace Gorzelanny. i'd rather go with spot starters and play the matchups.

    why wait on Bonds? there's no bonus points in fantasy for breaking records. find a team desperate for HRs & try to ship out Hafner & Uggla in a 2-for-1. if you don't get a 1B in return, chances are Garko or Dmitri Young are available and are viable options.

    other names that could be on the waiver wire that could help you out (depending on your needs & wants):

    Markakis

    Corey Hart

    Coco Crisp

    they're all heating up and are probably better right now than Zimmerman, and maybe even Duncan.

    I would keep Sizemore and Verlander(altough his last two starts sucked).Everyone else?If you can get someone else go for it.
