Yeah, you have great starting pitching. You might want to try to upgrade one of your outfield/utility spots if you can't find an upgrade for Beltre. Your closers are decent, but may want to try to lock down a higher tier closer. I really like Capps a lot because although he won't get a ton of save opps. in Pittsburgh, he is going to help your ERA WHIP and Ks. Ziegler is a little more unproven, so maybe try to package him with someone for Broxton or Jenks or Valverde, etc...

I agree, your starting pitching is excellent, but you are a little weak at 3rd with Beltre anf Adam LaRoche leave alot to be desired at your utility spot. Especially with Santana coming back, I would try and move one of your starters for either a 3rd basemen or a closer. Closer is a bit of a larger hole, as Beltre can hold down the fort for now.

i'd stay put for now... if you're looking for closers, target guys like ryan franklin (chris perez at some point, i think) or manny corpas if they're still there... guys will lose their jobs and closers will become available. just remember that saves is a single catgeory, so you don't want to be moving pieces (like starters) that can help you in 3-4 cats too soon in the season.

see what shakes out. beltre isn't horrible, like you said, so i wouldn't be in a rush to move him unless he slumps bad... ian stewart is another third base elgibile guy to keep an eye on if you're looking for a potential option there.

Just made a trade, Jarjurrens, Maine, and Orlando Hudson for Verlander, Wang, and Freddie Sanchez (clearly a buy-low). I think with this trade I helped out my rotation with Verlander, buy I may need an upgrade at MI over Sanchez.

IDK about this deal. Verlander has been bad for over a year now. Hudson is better than Sanchez. Jurjens has looked really good this year, and Maine and Wang are a wash. This won't kill you, but I'm not crazy about it.

Verlander is iffy, sanchez is decent and is hitting okay so far, Wang may be bad news, especially since the new stadium is a band box, and Wang never had that good of numbers outside of wins the first place with a ERA nearing 30.00 something could be wrong there.

help with mine?

The new Stadium is not a "bandbox". SMALL SAMPLE SIZE, guys. Anything about "wind currents' caused by open concourses or whatever is speculative bullsquid.

I'm going to disagree and say it was a solid trade for you because Verlander is more proven than Jurrjens. Jurrjens also pitched about 30 IP more last year compared to the year before, which is a red flag. (Verducci Effect, etc.) You'll need to bench Wang until he figures out how to pitch again. Either way, you have very good SP depth already so whatever you get out of him is a bonus.
