    Who's available that you like?
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    I agree with this for sure. You currently have only one guy who will have a batting average over .300 (Jeter), 1 guy with 35/110 potential (Dunn) and 2 guys who at best will be around 30/90 (Phillips & Zimmerman)

    In a 14 team league you are way ahead of the curve with SPs, having Oswalt, Harang, and Dice K.

    I would draft the best offensive player for the next 3-5 rounds, looking for 25-90 potential in all of them if possible. Maybe try to find another steals option.

    I think you took Nathan a little early, as I would never use a 7th round pick to take a closer. I tend to take my first closer more in the 9th or 10th round. Never done a 14 team league though so...

    Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.

    Thanks for the advice. With pick 3:4 I selected 2b Rickie Weeks at the utility spot so far. This is my roster so far and what spots needing to be filled. Should I try for a 1b like laroche or a outfielder or maybe Lugo etc? Any advice?

    I would try to get a sleeper next round. If Bruce is still available, take him. You already have a SS, so cross off Lugo. I like LaRoche, so that's probably not a bad pick. BTW, Weeks was a good pick. I think he's going to have a good season after his second half rebound last year.

    No way you take Bruce that early. He would still be available in the last 5 rounds for sure. I would go for some guys that are proven and you know are every day starters for sure. I'd get the best offensive player available again.

    Not sure I like the Weeks pick...kind of wasted at UT. I would look to shop Phillips for a monster OFer.

    If you look at someone like Randy Winn, he might likely bring what Weeks will...with less risk. And I would guess at least a few rounds later.

    I don't really like the team so far. The Weeks pick was very bad. It's not that he wont be good, its that he's at a high risk to get injured. There's also no reason to use up that UTL spot so quick. Probably go for a OF or 1B, but you need a big bat with HR/RBI help. Zimm/Jeter/Weeks all project less than 25HR, but all at most 90 RBI.

    Another bad thing about Weeks is that he's a low AVG type of guy, and that's going to hurt a lot with Dunn in there. He's only had 112 RBI in 316 games (2 seasons).

    I'd argue that Bruce would give atleast equal production to what Weeks would give you. I would also say that Randy Winn probably would produce less than Jay Bruce.

    True, but none of the three should be taken that early. Granted I don't know who was available at the time so I could very easily be talking out of my butt, but an educated guess tells me there are some better options. A guy like Adrian Gonzalez should be available I would think (someone of his production I mean 290/25/90). Hard to say not seeing the draft board though.

    The thing with Weeks is his position. If you draft him, you pretty much have to play him at 2b.

    With pick 4:4 I selected OF Johnny Damon. The outfielders were going fast. This is my roster so far and what spots needing to be filled. Should I try for a 1b like laroche or another outfielder or maybe a catcher or another Pitcher? Any advice?
