I am hurting the most in OBP and SLG...In the past month I have gone from a 15 point lead to staying out of 5th place by 2 points at the break. I know this team will not win me the league, so what can I afford to trade/what do I need to trade it for?

I would think that you would need some more relief pitching. I would drop Mike Gonzalez and Rickie Weeks. list some available SP's, RP's, and hitters please.

I would look for Miguel and Prince to do better in the second half, or at least I hope so since they are both on my team as well. Also you could drop Bourn and maybe some of your other bench players for some starters or scour the players for another closer

Personally your team is full of first half flames that have cooled off considerably. I would look at moving Tejeda and Ellsbury while their value is still high. Along with Volquez I'm sure you can get some considerable trade value out of those three. Tejeda is usually a second half dominator so I would use that as bait to another manager(I think he's toast for the rest of the year). Ellsbury and Volquez are in their first full seasons, Ellsbury is all ready slowing down, and Volquez is showing signs of it (all rookie pitchers fatigue in the second half). I also agree that Weeks and Gonzo should be dropped or traded depending on how deep your league is. Take a stab at Zumaya or Marte if they are available. As far as hitters go I'd also look at trying to see what you can get for Prince, look for those splits from guys that catch fire in the second half. Keep McLouth though, he's for real.
