OF Kearns, Austin (RF-Cin)
Util Durham, Ray (2B, DH-SF)
Bench Martinez, Edgar (DH-Sea)
Bench Cabrera, Orlando (SS-Mon)
Bench Hunter, Torii (CF-Min)
Bench Konerko, Paul (1B-CWS)

I'd dump Kinney. you have enough young arms, and they are the ones to have in Zambrano, Willis, and Webb. No need to take the gamble on a lesser prospect in Kinney. Miller park is not a good place to pitch, nad their squad is iffy. No offense or bullpen to bail you out. Zambrano and Willis are studs. Webb is a solid pitcher you can play the matchups with. I'm benching Webb for the 2nd consecutive start - first vs MIN (a 4.50 ERA loss), now at Minute Made - still he is a solid pitcher.

Other than Hudson you have no quality SP. you don't really need RP, but I think Beck is worth more than Kinney. Beck had 51 saves one year, and over 250 lifetime, though few in last 3+ years. He looks to be the best option in the SD bullpen.

i would drop him or eaton, i like eaton but he has been pretty nasty this year with glimpses of success. dont expect beck to get 30 saves this year he is playing for the padres.

He should be better than have having German from the Tigers, right?

Oswalt just went on the DL in my league, so I moved Oswalt to the DL and I rolled the dice and picked up Beck, he will be with me on a trial basis for now. If he does well for me I will keep him and drop Donnelly or Big Hurt.

I have Guardado and Gagne as my closers. Eddie has struggled a bit lately and now he has broken off talks with the Twins on signing an extention.

Guardado could be traded before the deadline is up.
The BIG RED Machine will rise again.
