I don't think it's that bad, but I'm pulling up the rear in this league and there are no signs of improvement. I'm worried about getting buried early and not being able to catch up. Any suggestions? Should I make changes or stay the course?

Sabo. Not a bad team by any means. Just so happens that aside from Beltre (a surprise) and Dye (another surprise) your offensive players are all starting slow. Your pitching is good and will come around as well. I'm sure Derek Lowe's blowup probably cost you a game all by himself. Same thing with Halladay on opening day and Santana has been off his game. If I had that team the only changes I might make would be to get rid of Washburn and pick up another closer to go with Nathan (who is not a #1 closer) and needs help.

Are you the same Sabo with a team in Fountains of Dave's league? The two Sabo teams are amazingly similar. :eek:
