Whats killing you is your pitching Randy Johnson is old as crap and is nothing with the Yankees Johan Santana is falling, and Ben Sheets is nothing, and everyone else is average (pitching wise) you have hitting you just need pitching try making some trades with those three guys for guys like: A.J. Burnett, Josh Beckett (once he gets off the DL), Mark Buehrle, Kenny Rogers, Matt Morris, Chris Carpenter, and even Bartolo Colon. Those guys for the most part have wins and thats what you need not just strikeouts.

And Beltre, he is not all he is worked up to be try picking up another 3rd baseman like Chavez who is one of the BEST 2nd half players in the game!!! ;-D

people are holding onto pitching pretty stingily in this league, I'm trying to get guys like Beckett and Burnett but people are reluctant to let them go

I've seriously got one of the best pitching staffs in the league, and in order for me to get anybody better I'd probably have to trade Santana, Johnson or Sheets....and then am I really making the starting pitching better??? I mean who's gonna accept a Radke/Sabathia for a better SP?? I'm trying, and I'm personally talking to a guy right now about trading him Johan and one of my lower level pitchers for Halladay and Myers

I dont see how youre losing in this league with the team you have? Is it a 6 team league or something because you really have a good team. I really dont even know how to help because you have the studs and most are producing. I reallly have no idea how youre losing unless its just pure bad luck...

it's a 10 team league, and every week I seem to lose a majority of the offensive categories and break even in the pitching categories, but obviously if RJ or Johan have one start in a particular week and they get shelled....which has happened numerous times this year, then it's hard for me to compete in the pitching categories as well, I'm now currently talking to a guy about trading Abreu and one of my bottom feeding pitchers for Halladay and Brett Myers and either Edmonds, Floyd, Ordonez or Frank Thomas
