Not sure how tight the race is for saves or whether you have no chance at moving up in wins, or whether you are approaching your innings limit/starts limit, but having oswalt and or verlander on your bench when you are second last in wins doesn't seem right. I would have one of them in the P spot, unless you are rotating them through the SP spots. Also, could look to maybe move one of your arms for a 3B that could be an upgrade over Ensberg for the rest of the year, as it looks like he is going to be useless for the rest of this year on an offense that is sputtering in general.

Your team should definitely be competitive for the rest of the year regardless of making any big moves, and have many solid keeper candidates.

Of course I'm rotating those guys in...got every one of Verlander's starts since he started dominating. Thanks for your input.

most honorable sensae, i would offer:

Sexson and Patterson for R. Howard and then deal
guardado and burgos for someone who needs saves to get a better close (ray, fuentes) and maybe an upgrade at 3b. if u want a good 3b (arod, aram, atinks) try throwing in milledge as a prospect.
