I'd try packaging VMart and OCab to try and get a good SS (M. Young, etc...guys around that level). This is assuming you can find someone that's still high on VMart.

You have three quality catchers, so I would try to package one of them with a player like TJones for an upgrade at RP. There's bound to be a team weak at C in your league. But still, it looks like a really solid and well rounded team. Good job. ;)

Thanks for responding in my topic.

I would try and unload a Catcher or Cabrera for impovements at RP or any hitter (best you can get) because you could slide Figgins to SS and Sweeney to INF and then use the acquired player at UTIL

Unfortunately, I don't think anyone in my league wants VMart...I picked him up with a #14 waiver, so he obviously isn't that interesting to anyone. I'm hoping he'll heat up so I can trade him or put him at C, move Figgins to SS, and put Inge at IF. I'm trying to trade Kendall, but so far no luck. I would like one more solid CL, though.

You'll unfortunately have to wait on a catcher taking off to take advantage . Kendall is starting to come on a little.

You have a pretty nice team for a 14 team league. You pitching is lights out.

If you are looking for another closer....seriously, just wait a week. They are dropping like flies!

Definitely do something about your catching situation... three guys at a spot that is overall very weak as for as production goes. All the previous ideas suggested are good... try to upgrade at SS or RP... as a Kolb owner his price is prolly pretty low right now if you are feeling saucy... I am confident he'll get his act together and if I were you I'd rather have him and an open roster spot than one of those catchers and Jones with Mota coming back.

Try and work something for Jimmy Rollins. he started out really slow this year and alot of people are devaluing him.

Check his owners roster and try and work something to benifit him at low cost.
