I dont think i could agree with this statement more...took the words right from my mouth. Wright, Rolen, and Helton have been on fire over the last week and a half. And if you need help in HR and RBIs, now might be the time to trade Abreu, helton, and/or rolen...
They are all good players, but they have been either underperforming(abreu and helton (up until 3 weeks ago)) or overperforming(you can argue for the ageless scott rolen). These are big name players and you can find a good trade if you look for the right guys to replace them. I would say go out and look for a player like sizemore...solid, young, and can contribute in all cats. as far as pitching, i like your starters. you have 3 solid closers, but there is no need for that many setup men, especially if you arent counting holds. gagne is out for the season, move sheets to ur DL spot and add a recently hot SP for him. look for someone like bedard or ervin santana... i think either you should drop either accardo or sanchez and try to pick up a closer(macdougal, guardado, julio, etc) and find a team that is in need of a closer and try to package abreu(or rolen), hamels, and the recently acquired closer for a solid OF bat, and a respectable starter. you can play around with trades, but make sure that you come out on top before you make the deal

I think that Floyd and Young would be good to package together...
They are both big name players who have been rather disappointing so far this season. I would ask for an OF/2B player. Soriano is obviously the first to come to mind, but he is hard to get. Chone Figgins is the next best, and I recommend you push hard to get him while he's to be had for cheap
