Yeah people like Figgins,Rollins,Ramirez,Crisp,Willingham arent really helping out my BA there eh. I was thinking about making a deal for B.Giles, the team could use pitching, wont be keeping him, and hes underperforming atm.

There are obviously a few categories you could improve in but I think you need to start with a power guy. Your SP is pretty deep and you can certainly look to trade for that strength - think of packaging one with crisp (if you can get value for him) for some power.

Target the teams in your league who could use some SP or RP help. then from there nail down the ones with plenty of offense - most teams usually have a team or two with awesome bats and no pitchers to speak of and try work something there.

You should expect a power increase from Aramis in the 2nd half and hopefully D Lee will get stronger in the 2nd half, although with a wrist injury that is not guaranteed, so don't be opposed to shopping him for a less risky player if the opportunity arises to get good value for him.

Thanks for all the advice.
1) I contacted an Owner who has B.Giles benched and 8 better keepers at hand about a trade
2) I also inquired another owner about a Crisp And Zito package for M.Holliday. He could use both SB and Pitching.


Hows this sound?

I like that 2nd deal for you if you can do it.
As for Giles, I don't see him as anything special for your team unless you can get him pretty cheap.

Your offense will get better. Just hold on because I think DLee and ARam will tun it around big time, plus you have Giambi and Dye as well. You should be getting better. Good Luck!

try to nail a big time OFer because your 3rd OF spot where cuddyer is will still be weak even when cocoa is in there as he is not that much of an offensive producer.
