DL Ellsbury when he can be (can he be DL'd by now?) and drop Pineda. When Pineda is healthy, he's still barely worth it.

I'd rather have Beltre, so you could use Sandoval in a trade. I'd throw in one of Bruce/Jackson/Choo to pair with Sandoval and you should be able to land someone like Haren, or another similar pitcher (top 30, but not top 10). Find the team desperate for 2 extra bats.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

I think Sandoval/Choo is way to much for someone like Haren. You seem to have a lot of RP on your team and it seems like you may not need a better pitcher but more IP. What was your IP compared to the team that beat you? You say you keep losing pitching stats, but we've only played one week.

Trade from your 3B strength to pick up an SP. For Beltre or Sandoval, you could probably land someone of the calibre of Hamels, Grienke or Haren.

Last week I had probably just below 50 IP
