You have a very solid team although I am not convinced with Jeter/Phillips. I wouldn't want to make too many changes because guys like Hamilton have had slow starts and judging by last week, he should be getting back on track. You have a decent set of outfielders, maybe one too many. I'd start Hamilton, Damon and Hunter obviously because they're all pretty hot right now but I would use Werth/Beltre + a SP maybe Randy Johnson in a deal for a good upgrade at second and or SS. But that's if you want to. Werth is a solid power/speed guy so do not trade him for nothing. I say your team is pretty solid and you're probably unlucky to be in last.

Please help my team...

I agree with the post below. You've got 6 OFs and I'd say that two of them are worth riding every single day (Hamilton,Hunter) with Maglio and Damon as your other options. You should be able to get by with 4 OFs unless you get a DL stint.

I'd package Werth (a sell high guy now?) and Dukes or Cruz or Beltran for an upgrade at C, 1B or 2B. And, count me in the crowd that isn't high on Jeter or Johnson.

As for your pitching, Z will rejoin the Cubs soon and you'll get a lift. Put him with Cain and Becket and you have 3 solid starters. I'm not sold on Lowe or Wainright or Johnson as I don't see those guys giving you many wins and Lowe and Wainright are too inconsistent for my taste. I'd look to Toronto or Kansas City or Jimenez from Colorado (who's been on fire lately) as better options.

Of course, all of this depends on what's available in your league and the categories.

I would have to disagree on upgrading at 2B. Phillips is a top tier 2B who got off to a slow start and will bounce back as he is already doing. You are way to deep in the OF though. Got lots of good trade bait. Damon and Hunter are no brainers to keep and not trade. I would use Hamilton and one of your other OF's as trade bait to get a another strong starter and possibly a catcher as well. If Kurt Suzuki is available in your league he is a good C option. Starts everyday and hits for a high average. ALso adding a 3rd closer could help. Saves category is a nice one to be able to count on every week. Plus you get some era and whip help with em too.

If you trade Hamilton you might as well stay in last for the rest of ur life.
