Where to go next if I get a trade involving Derek Lee

12 team 5x5 roto 1250 max IP

I have Derek Lee right now and have an owner absolutely pawing at me to get him. He started with Sheets, Myers and Hinske for him. I countered with Giles and Uribe (both on my bench) + Lee for Rolen, Sheets and Myers. If that trade is taken (which there's a very good chance it will be with this owner) my team would be as follows:
C M. Barrett (ChC - C)
1B J. Morneau (Min - 1B)
2B J. Kent (LAD - 2B)
3B S. Rolen (StL - 3B)
SS J. Rollins (Phi - SS)
OF B. Abreu (Phi - OF)
OF C. Patterson (ChC - OF)
OF A. Huff (TB - 1B,3B,OF)
Util S. Green (Ari - 1B,OF)

BN S. Casey (Cin - 1B)

SP J. Peavy (SD - SP)
SP J. Schmidt (SF - SP)
RP E. Guardado (Sea - RP)
RP B. Ryan (Bal - RP)
P J. Rincón (Min - RP)
P S. Shields (LAA - RP)
P D. Turnbow (Mil - SP,RP)
BN B. Sheets (Mil - SP)
BN B. Myers (Phi - SP)
BN J. Bonderman (Det - SP)
BN G. Maddux (ChC - SP)

DL J. Borowski (ChC - RP)

Obviously I'd feel pretty good about this team. The only weak spots would be the bullpen (especially if Borowski doesn't end up closing this year), my catcher and a slightly weak Util slot. I'll have 3 stud SP's and 3 solid SP's and with the IP limit at 1250 could definitely stand to deal them. What would the best approach be at that point to upgrading the team? Maybe looking to deal Sheets for a top-notch closer? Or maybe a Bonderman for a decent catcher? Where would you go from here?
