Yahoo!, 16 teams, 6x6 (OPS, K/9)

This is a midseason league. Right out of the draft I thought I was doomed, but then I started to realize it wasn't as bad as I thought. Everyone on my offense is owned in my other 8 team league, which IMO is impressive. I also have a pretty good rotation. Unfortunately I drafted Valverde, pre blow up so I'm kinda screwed on the closer situation. I've been using MR for my other RP, but I'm logging too many IP and I'm gonna go way over the limit so I have to start deciding who starts more carefully.

Anyways, I'm in 3rd place and I was in 1st for quite a while. Besides closers, is there any other need I should look to address before the trading deadline (Next Sunday), or should I trust this group and keep an eye on the FA pool?

Leave a link. :-)

I like your pitching a great deal in a deep league such as this. Given the concerns of your IP limit being a notch or two too high, I think you could use one of your aces to trade up for a big bat, preferably an OF. I'd flirt with the idea of selling D-Train for Mariano Rivera for instance.

Speaking of making high-impact deals in deep leagues:
