I don't like your outfield.... Rowand isn't doing much... Berkman has been slow... Bay is a stud though. You might consider moving Capuano for a guy like Garrett Anderson. I would definately look to trade a starter to acquire a big bat, because the other poster was right in that you lack power.

Things will start to come around once Gullien and Mora recovery for their time on the bench due to injury.
help me please, I'll help with yours:

I agree. I think your OF could defintely get better. I would try package Capuano, Overybay Rowand for a better outfielder.

I'd def say OF help. I'm not a fan of Rowand and Berkman is a risk..I'd say pick up Westbrook to add even more pitching depth, then trade one of them for a solid outfielder.

Thanks for the help man!

If you could trade Buerle and Rowand for someone like Carlos Lee, your team would benefit greatly. If you could get more pop in the outfield, id try and do it with a guy like Lee. Now that Drew is hurt, your production dwindles even further when you replace Drew with Overbay. Look to definitely package a SP or two for a top player in the outfield.

Package Barkmanand rowand, and a relief pitcher to getthat one stud that could put you over the top, you could also trade barkman or rowand (maybe overbay) straight up for a decent player who is getting hot

I would trade Buerhle for Lee if you could. I recently got Clemens for my Carlos Lee, and I'm gonna miss his huge bat. Go for someone like him to solidify your power. He's undervalued by alot of people, so you could maybe get him for a guy like Buerhle or Sheets. Buerhle's value is higher right now though, and you have a better chance of getting him. Also, you could trade someone like Buerhle and one of your OFs for a stud like Abreu, or maybe buy low on Beltran while you can.

Help me out?
