C M Napoli
1B N Johnson
2B R Weeks
3B A Ramirez
SS J Reyes
OF L Berkman
OF A Jones
OF G Sizemore
UT E Chavez

I started the season extremely power heavy but have since moved some of that for guys like Reyes and Sizemore. I'm slowly getting back in contention in R, SB and AVG while holding on to an 11 spot in HR. I think I've done myself some huge favors here. Obviously, I have someone else in my utility role at the moment (Cameron), but assuming Chavez gets back on track is my offense set to make a push in the second half, or should I be looking to make additional moves?

SP J Peavy
SP B Sheets
SP B Colon
SP J Bonderman
RP J Papelbon
RP C Ray/T Saito

I've been keeping my head out of water with help from B Penny, A Pettitte and spares from the wire, but it looks to me that I may be able to run out a fairly formidable starting 4 in the second half (Penny and Pettitte are still on the roster as well). I'm fully aware that alot of my pitching hopes are hinging upon some questionable guys but I'm somewhat optimistic (or naive).

I'm sitting in 9th but I was in 12th prior to adding Reyes and Sizemore and now I have some long awaited pitching depth coming back.

How would you feel going into the second half with this lineup?

I would be mildly excited. I think you have the talent on your team to make a push for/in the playoffs, especially with your pitching coming back. I HATE Cameron (how can you not hit for a ton of power while striking out that much??), but like you said, Chavez will likely be back and bangin' soon, so no worries.

If Chavez can get back to form, then I'd say you are set.

Yes, you will move up the standings as that team is a whole lot better than a 9th place team. As to how much you'll move up, it's anyone's guess at this point since it's more on the lines of how far back you are, the rosters of those ahead of you, etc.

You should definitely move up though. ;-D

Thanks for the replies.

I neglected to state that I'm a rookie at this, and while I've read both of your posts and would love to be able to 'WHIR', I honestly don't know what advice to give you.

My apologies and thanks again for the feedback.
