You don't have a real closer, so adding one won't help very much. Also, you're lacking some power, especially in the outfield. Grab some closer-candidates instead of guys like Erstad and trade some speed for some more power.

Winning it all will be hard, but maybe you can find someone who overpays for a speedster and you should have a good team nonetheless.

good advice.

Hinske is wasted on your bench. Personally, I would trade Lowell since he has more trade value and play Hinske. Lowell for Giles or S. Green would be great for you. You need OF and power/aver.

agreed need some OF power..i'd look to trade pierre or some of your bench players for a solid OF hitter or closer.

sounds good to me and i would try to also upgrade your starting pitching as with no relievers u need to be a little better with your starters to make up for the automatic loss in saves.....
