You need a closer, I would actually keep Kershaw and Sizemore as they could be monstorous 2nd half (especially Sizemore), I would look at getting a Power 3B, especially if Figgans qualifies at 2B.

You may never get AVG but you do have good power hitters who will rebound in the 2nd half, and you Starting Pitching is solid, especially if you play the waiver wires right. Though you need to decide if you are punting saves or not and fix that soon.

help with mine?

Yeah I definitely need some help at Closer.

I just traded Polanco/Suzuki for Soto. Hopefully he will start heating up for the second half.

Do you think I should trade Duke/Saunders for an elite closer right now?

The first thing you should do is drop Barajas and AJ. Why are you even carrying three catchers in what looks to be a 1C league? Suzuki should be good enough. I agree with the above poster, you need another closer or two. I don't think you should necessarily trade for one though, just try and acquire one off FA. You should pay close attention to the mess in Tampa Bay right now and capitalize on that situation.

Hopefully trading away a sloid catcher who may go .270-.280 15 hrs for Soto pans out, but I think last season was a fluke for him and this is his sophmore slump. I wasn't high on him come draft time, since I researched his numbers and before 2007 was more of a no hit/ all glove type.
