I would def trade for a second baseman or a shortstop, those really the only "weaknesses" you have. Here are a few deals you could think about, Chris Davis for Furcal, Tulowitzski, Brandon Phillips or if Brian Roberts. If you were feeling adventurous you could deal Ryan Howard for Kinsler or Jose Reyes.

Thanks for the input. Would you see Stephen Drew as an upgrade at SS?

That's a good question Drew has a tremendous upside and the potential is there for him to be a dominant force at the shallow shortstop position. However, Hardy has put up solid numbers for a few years now, as we all know he goes into rather lenghty slumps but then he puts up scorching hot streaks. That being said it comes down to if you are willing to take the gamble on Drew or stick with the "sure thing," with Hardy, personally I would take the risk with Drew. Even if he doesn't blow you away with amazing numbers this year he won't be that much worse than J.J.
