Get rid of Jon Lester. He is the definition of a whip killer. He will get you a decent amount of K's and 10-12 wins but thats about it. He walks too many batters and hasn't shown he can command his pitches.

Felix will come around I think. His last start was a CG if I'm not mistaken. Lester is a hit or miss it seems (I'm a Sox fan so I see it first-hand).

I'd also pay attention to Lugo. Yesterday he was 4-4, but don't expect to see that too much. Lugo is fighting for a job right now as the Sox are getting fed up with his performance. Jed Lowrie was called up from AAA and has been hitting quite well as a fill in for Lugo & Pedroia.

Speaking of which you got Manny & Big Papi? How'd you swing that?

Your team is pretty solid.

I would just use the waiver wire to try to find a better second base option, something like Asdrubel or pedroia. Hudson is very overrated. Lugo is going to be fine this year, he's been hitting over 300. I'd be weary at the trade deadline if Lugo is still hitting this well because they know they have a solid SS for the future in Lowrie. I wouldn't be surprised to find Coco and lugo packing this year.
Jonathan Papelbon: When I'm out there pitching, it's not Jonathan Papelbon pitching, it's Cinco Ocho pitching. I get a little revved up some times, and Cinco Ocho doesn't know how to control himself when he's out there.

Love your pitching, replace Lester tho ...Santana has been lighting it up for the Angels and Kud has great run support for wins. Lester walks alot of batters.

Id recommend on selling high on Lugo and Ethier and land yourself a Solid second baseman , then trade Kazmir and Hudson and get yourself a high profile SS . If not then see if you can get your hands on Stephen Drew, I have a feeling hes gonna really come on, plus he has excellent surrounding cast.

Watch Ibanez closely, hes another good sell high candidate. You can always plug in Jr. if you do decide to trade.

if you get a chance....viewtopic.php?f=26&t=339443

My team is fading and fading fast.

Was in first until last week, and this week I am getting crushed by the guy in first. (Dosent help that he has Soriano but thats besides the point).

I dropped Lester and picked up Scherzer.

I dropped Towles and picked up Zimmerman and I dropped Gary Mathews and picked up Erick Aybar (who may be getting dropped soon).

I dont know what is up with my team. my pitching is doing "OKAY". They are doing good, they just arent getting wins.

My hitting, I dont even want to go there. They couldnt hit a beach ball if it was coming at them.

I mean on wednesday I hit a whopping .128 with 2 RBI's and 2 runs scored. My next two nights havent been all that much better either.

Any tips suggestions would be great (I know a couple of you said trade for a decent 2b/SS but Im just not great at making offers. If you could names some guys I could package that would be great)

Oh and the one guy that does his A.Either hits a HR but I didnt start him. I guess thats what happens when things are going ruff.
