Alright...

You need help at 3rd base. Nobody on your current team is going to get the job done all year for you!

I think your bench is pretty strong.

You def need at least one more quality starter.

And Are there any other relivers then the ones you have in your bottom three.

RP- Justin Speier
RP- Rafael Betancourt
RP- Aaron Fultz

Not good options! only Betancourt is decent. Any other starting closers or setup men out there?

Mitre because he will start some games this year too.

Villarreal and Cormier are your only other real options. But I am not sure they are much better then your current options.

What about available 3B ?

If Zumaya is on your ww, then he might be worth a look, as it seems you are in an extremely deep league. He'll help you in 4 cats:
Holds
ERA
WHIP
Possibly saves.

How many teams are in your league? That seems ridiculously deep, especially in an 8x8 or 7x7 league.

There are 12 teams in the league and there are 6 slots on each team for relief pitchers. 8-o
