Hi everyone,

I'm in a 10-team, 30-category Yahoo league. Currently in 2nd place.

I made 2 pretty significant trades yesterday and would love some feedback. Before I go further, know that power arms are gold in this league. Everyone wants them, only a few have them.

Anyway, here was my team pre-trade.

C- Brian McCann
1st- Prince Fielder
2nd- Chone Figgins
3rd- Miguel Cabrera
SS- Jimmy Rollins
LF- Matt Holliday
CF- Vernon Wells
RF- Gary Sheff
UT- BJ Upton, Michael Cuddyer
B- Burrell, Matthews JR

SP- Jake Peavy, Ollie Perez, Dice K, Bartolo Colon
RP- Wagner, Al Reyes, Brian Fuentes, Hideki Okajima, Brad Lidge
DL- Jason Schmidt, Joel Zumaya, Octavio Dotel.

First trade was McCann/Cuddyer for Jorge Posada/Orlando Hudson

I liked this because I was tiring of McCann and Cuddyer is just a singles hitter so far this year. Posada is a good bat, and O Hud is really playing well.

Then later in the evening, I traded Fuentes/Figgins/Cabrera for Felix Hernandez/Giambi/Valverde and Kelly Johnson.

I know it's a gamble with Felix, but he's a power arm, and I had to make the deal. 3 weeks ago, the kid turned down Pujols for Felix. Giambi helps with power and walks, Kelly Johnson gives me walks as well, something I was getting crushed in every week.

Now I have Upton at 3rd, Hudson at 2nd, Posada at C, Giambi at UT with Matthews JR. When Felix gets back, I have Peavy, Dice and Felix as my top 3 with Valverde taking Fuentes place in my pen.

What did you think of my team pre-trades and post? If you could, tell me how you think those trades were...

I know this is a lot to go through, but I'm bored at work.. Thanks in advance.

I'd have made the first one.

I wouldn't have made the second.

And I'm kind of glad about that.
