how in the world did you get pujols, mauer, manny, beltran, david wright and carlos lee on the same team? That is 4 first/early second rounders and 2 late second/early third rounders.

Since it is a dynasty league I assume you were pretty darn smart in past years. Anyway, the offense is obviously all set. SInce it is head to head (and I assume points) you can get away with the loss of steals. I would try to trade beltran for an arm, since he will get a good return, and you have good OF backups (markakis). You could probably get peavy for him. I would also try to get backup closers in waiting like broxton, capps, zumaya, since they will be cheaper than the existing closers, and will eventualy help a lot. Try moving hall and hope troy t is a star

Yeah, that lineup is just sick! Valverde pick-up seems good to me. If Harden's healthy and Hill is for real, you have a solid line-up of arms. I agree with the suggestion about moving a power bat for ace pitching. It's H2H, so crushing your opponents in the hitting but losing the pitching doesn't help you. Add a top SP and your team has to be considered an overwhelming Champion favorite (if they're not already).

Your lineup is absolutely loaded, but you do definitely need another arm. I would try and move one of your big bats (besides Pujols) for a stud pitcher and someone to replace whoever you trade. I could see doing like Kazmir/Edwin Encarnacion for Wright or something along those lines. You could also move Hall to 3rd and get a different position with a pitcher.
