As mentioned above, the Bonds for Brown trade is very good for you.

As for the other, assuming that Schilling comes back and pitches
decently, then it is a good trade. Canseco, Rivera, and Velarde should
all realistically be WW fodder (don't tell me that Canseco and Velarde
will be even close to as good as they were last year). So basically it
is Cone for Knoblauch/Schilling, which is very good for you.

If Schilling doesn't make it back though, I'm not sure I would've gone
through with a cone for Knoblauch trade.

One question though, with Bonds and Canseco now gone, what does your
outfield look like?

The outfield is very thin, my best guy is Carl Everett, Ellis Burks,
Marty Cordova, and Glenallen Hill.   I am going to try and pick up
Jeromy Burnitz.

My pitching staff is now:  Shane Reynolds, Freddy Garcia, Schilling,
and Brown.  (With Gil Heredia in there).  Me bullpen is Jeff Wallace,
Alfonseca, and Trevor Hoffman (with Mike Trombley backing up.)

If I can get Burnitz, and a decent OF somewhere, I think I may be OK.

Me infield is now:

C:     Chas Johnson/Chris Widger
1B:   Sean Casey
2B    Knoblauch
SS   Vizquel
3B   Joe Randa

yes, a boo-boo trade ... but that's because Schilling is out for a bit.
Only reason.
