Not bad. How big is the league?
I'm assuming standard 5x5 categories too.
You definately need another closer. TJones is old and there has been trade rumors surrounding him.
Renteria and Crede have been pretty hot in the first half. You may be able to sell high on those two and get a better closer and a decent 2B like RWeeks until the streaky Giles comes out of his slump. (Someone dumped Giles in one of my leagues.)

I would try to upgrade Blalock and Edmonds.

You don't need all those SS; trade 1. HanRam in the U slot is a mismatch; you need more firepower there. I would be starting Hawpe over him or Edmonds, take your pick.

Probably not too late to sell high on Arroyo. Wang will get you nothing but good WHIPS and wins. Doesn't K anyone.

You do need a Closer, but I would think you've got plenty of parts to make some trades and shore up this team.

Help me over here?

I agree, trade one of your SSs and get a power bat into your U.

Also may want to consider a trade package to get another strong SP - Arroyo and Smoltz like your workhorses, and that needs to be upgraded - you got youth banked with Miner, Wang and Young, but one more like a Mussina, Oswalt, CZambrano type would stablize you.
