Pitching is the obvious problem, because your offence has 4 stud top 12 batters. I would only trust Lackey, Cain, Hill for your starters. I would trade Glaus for a solid pitcher and you should be fine in the league. If no one bites on him, I would send someone young at a position you are set at. I would maybe send Markakis because you are likely to find an owner who buys high on young talent, and may get a really solid pitcher in return.

I agree with the other poster, you need pitching help, but i would look for help with ur bullpen first. Look to deal Hall and Glaus to teams that need help at SS for good young closer as you could easily have no closers in a few years with jones and wagner getting older and you could use a 3rd now. Also try to target some up and comming closers, aka set up me who should be closers in the future, Broxton, Zumaya, Soriano, and Morrow are a few.

Could u help me out?

tough luck with mauer and harden on the DL...other than that make sure to start Ervin Santana when he's at home and pitches like an all-star but never on the road where he pitches like jeff weaver...i would also try and use glaus, renteria, or wright as trade bait to upgrade the SP

Yikes! Your pitching is horrible! Not to be blunt about it but yikes! You should either trade Renteria or Glaus away for a good SP. No use of having one of those bats on the bench. Make a move now while both players are hott.

You should package Glaus, Markakis, and E. Santana for a top flight starter and good backup OF. Surely somebody has to be willing to part with a starter if you offer up depth like that.

for one youre in a h2h league. this team is higher up at least 3 spots in a roto league so it looks like you probably ran into some unlucky matchups. and another thing with h2h, especially with yahoo, starting pitching is very unimportant. theres always the the unpopular but effective method of streaming pitchers. people will hate you but wins and k's are 2 free points if you do that. id try to push some of your starting pitchers for more closers. durham is the only weak leg i see on offense.

You need to trade some of that offense for some defense. I think you can put together a decent team if you some trading (sell high, buy low). You’ll be dead in the water if you try to stick it out and grab players off waivers or FA.
