what categories have you been losing in? Who did you deal for Utley?

One reason could be that your pitching is pretty weak without Burnett in there, but he's back so your fortune might change.

You need Sheets back - your SP is just not overpowering. Your bats, however are incredible and don't mess with that. Thanks for your help with mine.

i normally will rotate two starters each night and keep closers/relievers to pick up saves and keep my era low

i picked up both burnett and sheets from waivers

i traded utley for verlander and blalock. my reasoning for it is i felt i needed one more strong bat and blalock was struggling. although i wish i kept verlander

What catchers do you have on your waivers? I'd try to pick up Martin, Ross, Willingham if they're out there.

I would look to trade Uggla (your not using him with Ultey now in there) and J Johnson (his numbers look good but that WHIP is terrible and the ERA will--I mean WILL--rise quite a bit) for an upgrade at SP. Obviously you need to find a team with a bad 2B option, but once you find that your should have no problem upgrading SP. Just remember that Johnson WILL NOT keep these numbers up, trade him while you can.

Thoughts on my squad?
