Re: Help! My roster's a friggin' mess....
You might not like to do it but the best way to get what you want is to trade Harden, perhaps package him with another player or two. But why trade Furcal? He's a .280 lifetime hitter and most importantly he steals bases. 46 last year if I'm not mistaken. Most owners won't trade you a good stolen base guy without getting one in return. Furcal always starts a little slow. Don't trade those stolen bases away because you won't get them back. Hawpe is raking right now too. Four homers last week and he wasn't playing at Coors Field. Calm down, pour yourself a drink and put some Pink Floyd on. It's going to be okay. Good pitching, believe it or not, can always be had on the waiver wire. Especially early in the season. If he's not taken see if you can pick up Clemens. This time of the year there are pitchers on the waiver wire who were either hurt last year or just had a bad year and no one wants to take a chance. Also it might not be a bad thing to check out that rookie player on the wire who you have never heard of but who's playing pretty good right now. Be patient and educated but be ready to take chances. Keep Martinez, Furcal, Bay, Utley, and Ryan because the chances of getting equal players in a trade is nil. Build the rest of your team around them.
