Well get Gibbons off your Bench, and Church on your bench for now. It's not a bad team, good offense. Some of your pitchers scare me but it could be worse. Keep on eye on the FA's and be the first to grab the next break out pitcher. Wait I just looked again, Gibbons is on your bench and in your line-up. Did you draft him twice? :-?

your pitching is pretty bad i think. you should trade some of your hitting for pitching, but i can't say who exactly unless i know who's on y our FA.

you can try trading glaus away, since edwin should be a good enough replacement for him at 3b that you can just pick up. i think rowand and kearns on your bench will be solid OFs this year too (20 hrs 10+ sbs for rowand, 30 hrs 90 rbis porrible for kearns), so maybe trade edmonds too later (after he rebounds from this slump and is on a streak) if you can, then replace edmonds with either rowand or kearns.

glaus should get you like 2nd ace types such as smoltz, mulder, beckett (don't know if i'd want him); or injured/underperforming near top ace guys like harden, felix, bartolo (don't know if i'd want him though), burnett (don't want him either), RJ, patterson.

if you do a 2 for 1 where you give both glaus and edmonds (once edmonds recovers from this slump), you should be able to get healthy near-top aces like pettitte, carlos zambrano, dontrelle willis, buehrle, webb (wait until he cools down a little, which he might not significantly), and schilling. the only ones i'm guessing you won't be able to get are santana, peavy (assuming he'll rebounce which he most likely will), sheets, pedro, carpenter, and halladay.
