Well, you lack a true speedster. I would attempt to trade one of your OFs for a base stealer, perhaps try and trade Hall too as I don't see his numbers approaching last years at all.

I'd say figgins qualifies as a speedster. Try and trade Hafner today after that monster HR to an indians fan for a guy with decent power and speed. SBs can be a neglected stat.

take a look:

I do well in roto even when I am light on steals and finish 10th or 11th in that category. But you gotta be strong in most other areas to do that.

Your team, while rock solid, does need that speed component to succeed. I agree with trading Haf for a big time SB man.

Your closers are awesome (which is great to have in roto) and your SP is rock solid.

please help me out

See if you can get dave roberts cheap. Spot him against right hand pitchers and you can net 30-40 stls in about 100 games used. When figgins is back, he will give u 40 + as well, meaning you will be a 100+ stls team which is fairly solid.
