Do I make this trade, I need a SP.

I currently have the team below in a 10-team, 5x5, Head to Head...It was an autodraft and I only have 1 SP (2 if Clemens comes back - I thought I pulled him off of my list)

I have been offered B.Molina, M.Rivera, A.J. Burnett for Beltran, Varitek and Jason Isringhausen...do I make this trade? His other pitchers are Santana and Harden but I tried for Harden earlier? Do I counter with someone of less stature then Beltran? maybe Matsui?

C J. Varitek (c)
1B A. Dunn (1b, of)
2B P. Polanco (2b, 3b)
3B A. Ramírez (3b)
SS J. Lugo (ss)
OF C. Crawford (of)
OF J. Bay (of)
OF C. Beltrán (of)
Util H. Matsui (of)
BN J. Francoeur (of)
BN A. Béltre (3b)
BN J. Guillén (of)
BN C. Shelton (1b)
BN C. Barmes (ss)

SP R. Clemens
SP Z. Duke
RP J. Nathan
RP C. Cordero
P J. Isringhausen
P T. Gordon

trade doesn't look bad but leaves you weak at OF

I don't think burnett is that good so I would definately try for harden. Maybe try something like a 2 for 1 like matsui and guillen for him or a 3 for 2 and add the catchers. The deal would be easier to get done if you leave the closers out since you would be getting the better one and you don't really need to improve with them because you have 5 closers already.

What about Cordero for Harden straight up?

Try trading one of your closers, (gordon, gonzo, cordero, isring) for a middle-tier pitcher, like CC, Zito, or Hudson type.

Leave your hitting the way it is - but your 2B is really weak.

Who's left on Waivers? Beltran should be better this year, so if you trade him, you need someone better than Burnett. You definitely need to clear a bench spot or two for the best available pitcher. Someone like Daniel Cabrera, or a young gun like Liriano or Crain may be available.
