You still have guys that are putting up solid numbers, but only Berkman is really hot so i can see why you fell off. It really doens't look like a winning team to me this year, but stay on the waiver wire and try and pick up hot bats and arms and claw your way back.

if i were you id drop weeks, no reason to keep him with his horrible batting average. sorry about furcal. your pitching will come around with johan and company. i think you could make that comeback just keep your eyes on the waiver wire for any player that heats up. good luck/

SS is going to be a problem for you, as Furcal will be out for quite some time (I'm in the same boat in my H2H). Guzman may keep up decent numbers, but I wouldn't bet the house on it. Renteria is available in a fair number of leagues, he is a guy you may want to consider picking up if you can. He should heat up with the rest of the Tigers offense.

Weeks might be worth keeping, but only if there is nothing on the WW that is better, which in an 8 team league I doubt. The only other spot in your hitting I would worry about is the second UTIL, where Beltre is right now. Beltre isn't going to produce any better than what he's shown, not in that lineup. You may want to consider making a move for another bat, unless you want to wait out Thome.

Your SP's look good, though if you trust the past as indication of the future, you may consider moving Haren (notorious second half collapses, especially in W and ERA). He would be a valuable trade piece that should fetch a hefty return. Also, I would definitely try to sell on Colon. He started off last year at like 5-0 but followed that up with a record of 1-8. He is a major candidate to collapse at any moment. I would hope for one more solid start, and then try to move him.

Other than that, you should be fine once a few guys start hitting. Good luck!

Help if you can:

I agree on moving colon and haren is possible, johan is a second half go so he will carry your staff through the rest of the year. I am stuck with the same problem having furcal on my dl and guzman starting. He has been a nice replacement, but I dont think he keeps it up. Maybe you can package him along with a pitcher for a better option there.

Your offense looks pretty solid. Like some of the others said the only place I can see a weakness might be your util spot. Beltre isn't the most consistent player.

I have bad luck when it comes to signatures that the person either gets traded or hurt...in this case I hope he gets traded.
