12 team H2H 7x7. My infield is weak aside from Votto and Martin, but I don't want to move ManRam or CLee. What should I do here? Great trades are waiting to happen as I have already sent just Henter Pence for Wells and Cordero.

1b-Joey Votto
2b-Jose Lopez
3b-Mark Teahan
ss-Yunel Escobar
of-Carlos Lee

Well Lopez is finally starting to heat up (I had him in one league as well) and Escobar had a monster game Saturday, but I'm sure there is something better at short. Has anyone picked up Lugo yet? he comes off the DL today. Teahon isn't a realy bad option but what kind of FA you have out there? You could put him and Span or burrell to get Inge or someone.

I would look to improve your pitching staff. You have some bench players that might be able to net you some solid starters if packaged right...

You have a good team.

Maybe package Martin and Lopez to get an average catcher and a much better 2B.

If I were you, I think the best course of action would be to look for a middle tier infielder with speed. You have a couple guys who will have decent SB rates, but don't really have any burners in your everyday group, and with guys like Manny and Lee in your outfield, you probably won't be able to use your bench to make up enough of the difference. Think someone like Chone Figgins here. Having Martin at C is a nice speed advantage, but it won't carry you.

You'll be fine in average, and R and RBI are tougher to predict, but you don't seem deficient there. You have lots of power in your outfield, and might have just enough on your infield. Whose available on the wire? Is Mark Reynolds out there? I'd take him if I were you and drop maybe Burrell. Similar players, but at least Reynolds is an infielder. Drew will be a big help, its hard to see Escobar being that useful long term, he just doesn't run enough, though maybe he has some hidden power upside still in there.
