Honestly, your team looks very strong and well balanced (I know you're probably tired of hearing that, I'm in the same boat). However, like my team, I think the one thing you lack is speed. You have Span and Furcal and Ellsbury are on the DL but that's it. I don't know, I really think Lind is a beast and a true great hitter so PLEASE be patient with him. Maybe try and upgrade at SS by packaging a closer plus Tejada?

Help me with mine? viewtopic.php?t=411939

I'm definitely high on Lind and I will wait out his struggles. Middle infield has been my issue for 2 years now. I have no idea who to even target to fix it. Any ideas? I'll hop over and help you out now.

Being weak at middle infield won't be the death of a team, and you didn't prioritize them at your draft so you have 2 options.
Trade to improve at 2B/SS. You do have enough aces to potentially move Haren for a solid 2B or SS. I wouldn't sell yourself short, but if you can get a decent return, your pitching can probably survive.
The second option is to continue to play late round fliers/WW adds with upside and hope they pan out. Remain very flexible at 2B/SS, be ready to add and play the hot hand, and hope someone produces good enough to stay on your team for real.
