I do not see your starting pitching being reliable in the long run.

i have to agree, the starting pitching seems a bit shaky to me. maybe see if u can turn one of the closers in to a more proven starter? it just seems that the pitchers you have, all have a chance to implode or be pretty inconsistent for a long stretch

I think that you have a pretty well rounded team with some options to acquire a 1-3 tier SP. Relievers make great trade bait going in the final stretch. You have some potential on your bench as well to trade for some decent pitching. You can use some of your RP to snag a new bat.

You need a solid #1 pitcher..check on kershaw availability else do a solid pitcher and hitter for a decent pitcher. I see your overall team ending up in about 4th or 5th.

Why does everything think I need a #1 pitcher? Just curious. With the pitchers I have, I am consistently competing week-to-week in every pitching category but will occasionally lose CG, overall I have actually won more pitching cats than not and I usually do well with hitting (not so much past week or two, but that's because I've gotten unlucky matchups - the hitting lineup I have should be among the better hitting lineups in the league). With so many pitchers I am frequently ahead in Qs, Ws, and Ks, and my ERA/WHIP isn't hurt by one bad matchup. Also, it means that one very good pitcher would have less of an effect on my overall pitching cats, since I have a ton of innings pitched so their results are diluted. What's the reasoning behind the "you need a #1 pitcher" suggestion?

I recently traded away C.C. for Soto and Ibanez (back when C.C. was horrible) and even now I'm not sure I wouldn't do that trade again, as Soto has been a tremendous help and C.C. would only offer me marginally better stats per week (maybe 1 more Q, 1 more W, 5-6 more Ks, and one less run given up per week than any of my other pitchers on average, and that's assuming C.C. has a good game which obviously won't be every week).
