my team just doesnt seem to be getting it done, i know i have some great guys but so far they just arent mashing it like i expected. should i look to trade a pitcher for a bat? or a pitcher/hitter for a better bat?

Our teams are somewhat similar, in that I too was expecting more production then I'm getting so far. It's SOO early - things are going to change. For instance, Pablo Sandoval has 0 RBI and 2 runs now - he'll improve. Along the same lines, I feel that you're hitting will definitely improve, but your pitching has had to look pretty good so far. If anything, some of your pitchers may have performed better then you initially could have hoped. If you want to make a small move that's fine, but nothing too drastic. Like do you have/need a closer?? I would think also you could use some SB help.

Well it depends. First off, don't you need a closer? While guys like Rios, Hart, and Markakis would definitely help, they might cost you too much. I would try to target a lesser player for SBs, because to me you're lacking there.
i see what you are saying as far as the closer situation, but i dont like to trade for closers really. i know they could be better though. who would you think would be good to target for SB? what type of player?

You could use Pena to target a player like Damon or Victorino or Brandon Phillips someone who can get you 30-40ish SBs.
