Okay, here to help.
First drop Barmes, and move Church to the DL.

Second, make a deal that includes Furcal, you might have to sell low, but it'll be worth it.

Your team actually has a stacked offense, and it seems starting pitching is your trouble.

Can you post some of the categories?
Jay Bruce is mah franchize. I love you Chris Davis!

I picked up barmes to replace furcal, than barmes got hurt so I grabbed Crosby, If i get rid of barmes and furcal im stuck with a sub par SS. Or is that who I should try to trade furcal off for?

I would agree about the starting pitching. By some sort of miracle this weeks pitching stats are at 7 wins 2 saves 2.22 era and a 1.31 whip. only 35K tho. Have Kershaw and maddux pitching tomorrow. (may bench one or both).

What do you mean by "categories"

Thank you for the suggestions!

Bobby Crosby is better than his numbers show. If you drop Barmes and put Furcal on the DL, then you have Crosby, who once again is a above average player. Furcal should help you bring in a good arm for the back of the bullpen.

I might even consider dropping Putz for a reliever in FA, I'd need to know who is available.

Who's available for 1B and 3B, you can definitely improve on Beltre and use him as trade bait.

The categories are : R HR RBI SB AVG W SV K ERA WHIP

Here are the top available RP:

Heath Bell
Scott Linebrink
Jim Johnson
Doug Crocail
Matt Thornton
J.P. Howell (had him on my radar)


Here are the top available 1B (I have had Konerko (too much CWS exposure on my team) and Delgado...)

James Loney
Eric Hinske
Casey Blake
Ryan Blake
Ryan Garko
Carlos Delgado
Matt Stairs
Nick Swisher

Here are the 3b

Troy Glaus
Melvin Mora

Id rather try trading 2 players for 1 good player than picking up more FA...
