I've been in 3rd place for a few months, but I fear that is going to change in the blink of an eye. I rarely gain points, it seems. Struggling in the Wins column now and that is one of my biggest problems. Runs and RBIs are hard to come too. Any suggestions?
Dont like your starters that much. They all had great starts, but like you said the wins have been hard to come by recently. See if you cant sell Sowers high for a pitcher who will win more games. Also, with Coco Crisp waiting on the bench maybe trade an outfielder for some starting help.

Yeah, starters are the problem. Snell was just picked up and he did ok for me last week, with the exception of the loss, but i picked up 10 Ks at least. I did have Freddy Garcia, but he was moved in a deal for Hafner. Garcia was quite frustrating though.
There are some teams that could use the OF help, so perhaps i'll try and package Crisp and Sowers for a starter.
I'm really good friends with the guy who is in 2nd place and he also has Bedard. I may be able to do it.
Starters on the WW are pretty slim:
Anibel Sanchez, Chad Billingsly, Woody Williams, Tony Armas, Gustavo Chacin (DL), Eric Milton, Elizardo Ramirez, Ramon Ortiz, Byung-Hyun Kim, Randy Wolf, Mike Maroth, Brian Bannister, Luke Hudson, Homer Bailey (does he even have a shot at coming up?).
I don't think any of those WW pitchers will do you much good. It looks at least on paper like your team should be performing well, not really sure what the hangup is. If you could get one more ace to complement Halladay and Webb you should have a good stock of SP's. I'd do as suggested and try to pickup Bedard, perhaps shop around Kent as well.

Take a look at my team, help is always appreciated:
