How does my team rate? Rate me and I'll help you

I'm in a 12 team, head to head league with the usual stats + holds. Here is my team.

C- Victor Martinez
1B- Paul Konerko
2B- Chase Utley
SS- Derek Jeter
3B-Hank Blalock
OF- Carl Crawford
OF- Vernon Wells
OF- Milton Bradley
UTL- Jermaine Dye
UTL- Justin Morneau
BENCH- David Eckstein
DL- Nomar Garciaparra

SP- Dontrelle Willlis
SP- Roy Halladay
RP- Brad Lidge
RP- BJ Ryan
P- Mike Gonzalez
P- Dan Miceli
P- Scott Linebrink
BENCH- Tim Hudson
BENCH- Joe Blanton
BENCH- Erik Bedard
BENCH- Kevin Millwood

Clearly, I want to try to trade some of my excess closers and upgrade elswhere. A team and I are thinking of this deal: Melvin Mora to me for Milton Bradley and Dan Miceli. I am also trying to package Kevin Millwood (who I recently picked up) to upgrade elsewhere. Through 2 weeks, I am 13-12-2 and in 7th/12th place, yet only 5 games back, mainly because I was without Roy Halladay last week and it was not until last week when my hitting started to get going (Chase Utley, Paul Konerko, Vernon Wells, etc.)

My question, where should I look to improve?

Rate me and post your link so I can help you.

Thanks!

Thanks for your reply - I like your team a lot, only real weakness I see is in that last OF/util slot. Dye should be solid, but I don't trust bradley not to suck. Nomar might be ok when he comes back, but I wouldn't want to rely on that for my util slot. You might want to see if anyone would bite on nomar for a guy like kearns with similar injury scares but a lot more power potential.

I am talking of a deal such as Miceli and Bradley for Mora.

Also, there is another team whose best closer is probably David Weathers. Being that I have 4 good closers, I want to try to work out a deal with him to upgrade my outfield. He has Sheffield and Jones who I guess I have some interest in. He also has both Arod and Aramis, and I know he is trying to trade Arod for pitching.

What should I give him for Sheff / Jones / Arod??

I would do that deal for Mora. I like Mora better than Bradley, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Miceli loose the closer role.

You could also try BJ for Sheff or Jones, depends on how much he needs RP though.

U have a good team. Drop eckstein and pick som1 up better in F/A. linebrink isnt a closer, so u dont really need him. It will cost u too much to get arod. U might be able to package up milton bradley along with some of ur UTL/bench for sheff or jones. Jones is arguably a top 10 player. Try to trade dontrelle willis his stock is going to drop. Millwood is also another pitcher to trade because he pitches for texas.

whats with all this bradley player hating, he has been solid lately, I would keep bradley and trade dye, dye is good in the beginning and then plays average. You are wasting your'e DL slot for Nomar, he is a has been. Get rid of Miceli.
