You have no obvious holes except your LF/RF/OF spot is thin for a 12 team league.

Some things to consider as you ponder trades:

1. Vmart might lose C eligibility in 2013 - monitor how he's used and he if picks up enough appearances. You have Rosario ready and waiting, so this might be a good opportunity to trade Vmart if you (for some reason) fall out of contention before the deadline.

2. Generally speaking, when you have a generic spot like IF, it's most efficient to put least position-scarce position there, if that makes any sense. For example, if you were slotting a SS at IF, that would be bad. Ideally I'd want a 1B at INF. You have Morales coming back, and if he seems okay, you might see if Sandoval or Wright plus one of your medium tier SP could net you Justin Upton or Mike Stanton. If I owned either one in a dynasty it would be like pulling teeth to get me to give him up, but stranger things have happened in fantasy baseball.

Other than that, this is a great team and I don't see any reason you can't compete for the title again. Good luck!

Thanks for the input. Yeah, I am hoping Ethier has a bounce back year this year beings it is a contract year, He just saw Kemp get paid off, so I am hoping he wises up and works hard. Fowler was a late add after I traded Choo/Gardner last year just so I could get a few SBs down the stretch. I can definitely use an upgrade over him. I was actually thinking about drafting Cuddyer to replace Fowler as the available player pool is sparse and I think Cuddyer will excel in COL. Of course, if I can get Cepedes in the draft it would be much better.

potential issues:

LF Carlos Lee - His 30hr seasons are gone, maybe even his 20hr seasons.
RF Andre Ethier - steady 2 year decline since Manny left. If the dodgers don't put a stud behind him, I wouldn't expect any improvement.
U David Ortiz - Age factor, he can drop off at any moment.
Nathan - been a while since he's had an injury free season

Well, according to ESPN, Prince is likely to land in Seattle or with the Dodgers. While its hard to fathom the Dodgers actually landing Fielder it could be another effort to increase their value for the upcoming sale. Plus, Prince and Kemp are really good friends. So, you never know. I'm thinking a more realistic thing to occur is to move Ethier to the three hole and Kemp to the clean up spot.
