I'm sitting at 3rd place in my Y! public 5x5 roto league with 74.5 points. 6 weeks ago, I was in 11th out of 12. Since then, I was then able to pull a huge trade for Josh Hamilton and Prince Fielder and pick up Ryan, Pence, and Volquez off waivers. The leader currently has 103.5 points.
3b Reynolds (just dropped Zimmerman)
of Sizemore, Hamilton, Bay

The first place team has:

It should be noted that he's on pace to finish 7 ip over the limit while I'm on pace to finish 75 ip UNDER the limit. I have 5 and 7 points in wins and Ks, respectively. So, I should be able to make up several points in those simply due to my team having the lowest IP so far. Do you think I can make up the 29 points between us over the next 3 1/2 months? If not, what do I need to do (other than find a better SS option)? Thanks for your input.
