Points H2H 12-Team, Championship, 1 Trade Left WHIR

Thanks for the view! I'm trying to get some solid advice and will be happy to post a real analysis on your post in return. I'm in a 12-team H2H points league (scoring towards the bottom). Currently I'm in 1st place and am guaranteed to make the playoffs. I've been making trades all year to try to get solid, reliable players. I only have one trade left per league limits, so it's an important one to consider. It's a fairly competitive league and you have to be quick to make solid gains off the waiver. Here's my current roster:

Batting:
C: Wilin Rosario
1B: Pablo Sandoval
2B: Jason Kipnis
3B: Aramis Ramirez
SS: Hanley Ramirez
LF: Melky Cabrera
CF: Jacoby Ellsbury
RF: Adrian Gonzalez
Util: Trevor Plouffe
Util: Justin Ruggiano
BN: Rickie Weeks
BN: Tyler Colvin
BN: Mike Napoli
DL: Jayson Werth
DL: Matt Joyce

Pitching:
SP: Jered Weaver
SP: Johnny Cueto
SP: Tommy Hanson
SP: Wandy Rodriguez
RP: Kenley Jansen
RP: Joe Nathan
RP: Santiago Casilla
RP: Addison Reed
P: Alfredo Aceves
P: Jared Burton
BN: Michael Fiers
BN: Mark Buehrle
BN: Jordan Lyles (Streamer spot)
DL: Shaun Marcum

And here's the points breakdown:

Batters Stat Category Value
Runs (R) 2
Singles (1B) 1
Doubles (2B) 2
Triples (3B) 3
Home Runs (HR) 4
Runs Batted In (RBI) 2
Stolen Bases (SB) 2
Walks (BB) 1
Strikeouts (K) -1
Hitting for the Cycle (CYC) 10
Grand Slam Home Runs (SLAM) 1
Pitchers Stat Category Value
Pitching Appearances (APP) 1
Games Started (GS) 1
Innings Pitched (IP) 1
Wins (W) 7
Losses (L) -3
Complete Games (CG) 10
Shutouts (SHO) 10
Saves (SV) 7
Hits (H) -1
Runs (R) -2
Home Runs (HR) -1
Walks (BB) -1
Strikeouts (K) 2
Holds (HLD) 5
Quality Starts (QS) 5

I'm looking for advice on anything you'd like to offer. This is my third year of fantasy, and the first year in a truly active and competitive league. What kind of trade should I make? Do I have a good ratio of bench spots between pitching and batting? I like to keep all my applicable pitching spots for relievers because they provide points almost everyday and this system is pretty generous with the RP...but do you agree rostering 6 RP at a time is a good idea in this situation? Any drops or pickups you advise? Some available on the WW:

Pedro Alvarez
Adam Lind
Erick Aybar
Todd Frazier
Delmon Young
Jed Lowrie
Jonathan Niese (on waivers)
Alex Avila
Jesus Montero

However much or little advice you want to give is appreciated...the more the merrier of course :-). And again, I'll provide the same level of thought and response to your threads as you do to mine. Thanks!
