    I'm really looking to get ahold of a left handed power bat in my lineup, preferably in the infield (2B, 3B). I also need to revamp my bullpen. I will be willing to part with a few players to obtain my needs...

    SP - Adam Wainwright
    RF - Lance Berkman
    2B - Skip Schumaker

    Untouchable:

    Albert Pujols
    Matt Holliday
    Colby Rasmus
    Jon Jay
    Chris Carpenter
    Ryan Franklin
    Jaime Garcia

    He will be in the minors. I believe it was agreed upon that injured players will be eligible to play in TBL. (i.e. Strasberg)

    I need an A Wainright type pitcher but not sure I have the left handed power hitter you are looking for.

    Here is my offer - Gardner or Granderson for Wainwright.

    Gardner himself isn't enough to get a Wainwright. Granderson might be, but gardner is basically granderson without the power.

    Hey Sciko I dont have much but im interested in Wainwright.

    I have branyan who is a power lefty and can play 3B, OF, and 1B when Pujols gets tired.

    Feel free to work with what I have...branyans the only power lefty I have though.

    I'd take a lefty speed bat as well if you have a middle infielder who fits the bill. I also need some relief pitching if you got it.

    I understand you're looking for an infielder, but any interest in rookie OF Ben Revere (lefty speed bat)?

    Probably not, I have too many outfielders already and really need to bolster my middle infield and 3B.

    I can't use Thome at 3B, and im handcuffed to keep Pujols at 1B now since the update took away his secondary positions. If I could use a DH, that would have peaked my interest big time. Who is your current 3rd basemen?

    I never seen Thome at 3B. It wouldn't feel realistic to me to play him anywhere but 1B or DH.

    Here you go... http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/t/thomeji01.shtml

    3B is also listed as his secondary position in the game.

    Not trying to push him on you. Just telling you it's realistic. If you aren't interested, though, just say so and I'll lay off.

    Lol...the last time he played 3rd Base was 1996.

    Again, if I had a DH I'd go for it. I won't say lay off, but I don't think I can make a deal for Thome considering the players I have around my team. Thanks for your interest though Doug.
