12 Team Standard 5X5 Roto League

C B. Inge (Det - C,3B,OF)
1B J. Giambi (NYY - 1B)
2B C. Biggio (Hou - 2B,OF)
3B C. Figgins (LAA - 2B,3B,SS,OF)
SS C. Izturis (LAD - SS)
OF C. Beltrán (NYM - OF)
OF G. Sheffield (NYY - OF)
OF H. Matsui (NYY - OF)
Util J. Drew (LAD - OF)
BN C. Lee (Mil - OF)
BN R. Hernández (SD - C)
BN C. Utley (Phi - 1B,2B)

SP M. Mulder (StL - SP)
SP T. Hudson (Atl - SP)
RP Y. Brazobán (LAD - RP)
RP B. Lyon (Ari - RP)
P M. Batista (Tor - SP,RP)
P M. Mussina (NYY - SP)
P M. Prior (ChC - SP)
BN R. Oswalt (Hou - SP)
BN A. Pettitte (Hou - SP)

What should I do to improve my team? For most of the season I've been between 2nd and 5th in my league. Is it worth it to hold on to Utley while he gets limited playing time or should I just drop him? I also feel like I should upgrade at 1B? Would Darin Erstad be better (he's available) or should I try to trade one of my outfielders or starting pitchers instead? Haren is also available and I was thinking of trading one of my starters and picking him up.

Thanks in advance.

I think your team is ranked artificially high right now compared to where it will be. You have major weaknesses in power and RP. Your relative strengths are your outfeild and your starters. I would advocate trading one of your starters or your 5th outfeilder (Drew if you can get Value in return) for a need area, firstbase is hurting, and the probelm with figgins at 3b is his vale is severly depreceated there being far below average 3baggers in HR and RBI. That being said, your team speed looks very good. Ideally you would be able to pass along biggio moving figgins to 2b

Update: Someone in my league dropped Furcal (why he did that, I don't know) and I was able to pick him up off waivers. Now my team looks like this:

C B. Inge (Det - C,3B,OF)
1B J. Giambi (NYY - 1B)
2B C. Biggio (Hou - 2B,OF)
3B C. Figgins (LAA - 2B,3B,SS,OF)
SS R. Furcal (Atl - SS)
OF C. Beltrán (NYM - OF)
OF G. Sheffield (NYY - OF)
OF H. Matsui (NYY - OF)
Util C. Lee (Mil - OF)
BN J. Drew (LAD - OF)
BN R. Hernández (SD - C)
BN C. Izturis (LAD - SS)

SP M. Mulder (StL - SP)
SP T. Hudson (Atl - SP)
RP Y. Brazobán (LAD - RP)
RP B. Lyon (Ari - RP)
P M. Batista (Tor - SP,RP)
P M. Mussina (NYY - SP)
P M. Prior (ChC - SP)
BN R. Oswalt (Hou - SP)
BN A. Pettitte (Hou - SP)

Also, should I pick up any of these relievers available either on waivers or as free agents:
C. Tsao (Col - RP)
D. Hermanson (CWS - SP,RP)
C. Fox (ChC - RP)
D. Turnbow (Mil - SP,RP)
A. Burgos (KC - RP)
