I can't remember the last update I had for my baseball team. But, here is the story for the last couple months. I was in first place for quite a while. Then I lost first and almost fell to second. I was down to the first place team by 10 to 14 for a while. I had to make some trades. I traded Kevin Youkilis for Brain Roberts and Yovanni Gallardo. That is trading a top 20 hitter for a top 10 pitcher and top 30 hitter. Not a bad deal. I also traded the injured Jose Reyes for Stephen Drew (a top 40 hitter when healthy - and a big 2nd half guy) as well as the DH for the Orioles (Luke Scott) who is having a pretty good year. Hopefully he keeps it up.
Just a couple days ago I went back into first place. My hitters are all 1st, 2nd, or 4rd place in all their categories. If my pitching could pull it together I would be dominating. I hope to pick up the pace with my pitching (I have a good staff) so I can dominate. Right now my lead is pretty perilous.
