I'm in a 12 team 5 by 5 head to head league. I've been hanging onto a slim-lead for first all season. My pitching has been dominant as of late, but my hitters are pretty mediocre. Do you guys think I should trade for more hitters, or hit tight? Help me out with this, and i'll try to look at your team.

C: Lo Duca
1B: Gibbons
2B: Kent
SS: A Rod
3B: Lowell
OF: Ichiro
Abreu
Ibanez
Util: Furcal
SP: P. Martinez
Halladay
Mulder
Hudson
Oswalt
Santana
Jerome Williams
Glavine
Lackey
RP: Guardado
Rivera
Sasaki

Thanks guys.

I really dont see anything you need to change. Ibanez will help your offense, he's getting hot as of late. Kent will probably do fairly well after getting off the dl. Your pitching is awesome, nothing to worry about there.

I like your offense a lot (it's a lot like the offense I have in one of my leagues). Your pitching is, as you know, fantastic. If you were going to move anyone, you might want to shop Santana (if it is not a keeper league) - I've noticed that a quite a few people have bought into the hype and will offer quite a bit to get him.

The only weaknesses in your offense might be Gibbons and/or Ibanez. I am not a big Gibbons fan. Maybe you could try and package Gibbons and Santana for a slumping 1B w/upside. Someone like Bagwell or Sweeney. Mind you I wouldn't deal Bagwell for that. Look for a team that needs pitching help w/an extra 1B in the util slot or on the bench. Good luck. My team is just above.

I would try to package a mediocre pitcher and Lowell for Rolen and a good 1B. I think Lowell will trail off later this season and you can sell while he is the best person qualified at 3rd (except Pujols, of course).

you have sick pitching, don't touch it.

Put Ibanez at first, see if you can deal Gibbons, no need to waste him at OF
Same w/ Furcal, he has high trade value being a SS. Trade him to someone who is weak at SS. Go for an undervalued stud OF like Ordonez, Berkman, or even Green. Your infield is awesome, but don't waste IF at OF spots.

A few upgrades, you'll be unbeatable. Don't touch your pitching or IF to make this work, you don't need to. Think about dealing Arod for two stud OF if need be, Furcal will be fine (Sosa/Luis Gonzalez) or something.

Good luck

Thanks alot for the help guys. For some reason I never thought about moving Ibanez to first and finding another outfielder. I'll see what I can do, but I haven't been able to complete any trades since like May. I guess the guys got weary after seeing the results of trades Javy Vazquez for Halladay, and Reggie Sanders for Andruw Jones (who I traded for Kent and Hudson).
