Interesting... I would have though adding a speed threat would be more important than increasing your rbi. At any rate, if you can upgrade your infield just a bit more, your lineup should be in good shape.

To catch up in holds, it might even be worth tempoarily going without a bench hitter and adding a middle reliever. Ideally, you'd be able to trade Mondesi plus an infielder for an if upgrade. Making that happen might be tricky, though...

In any case, I think the key factor to this team's success in the second half will be your starting pitchers. Your rotation is solid, but setbacks (such as a slow return by Brown) could be very costly.

I agree with Arlo. You've got to get Relaford off of SS...he's a decent utility man and is elibible at several positions.
