Thinking about picking up either Danny Espinosa (hot right now with 2b # SS eligibile) or Scott Rutledge (Flying under the radar screen right now.
Pitchers Available: Doubrat, Parker, E. Vasquez, Milone, Lincoln, and F Cordero (Houston's new closer

I think I have a ton of offense. If you were thinking of packaging some of my stud hitters and possibly throw in maybe a halladay. Who would they be the offensive players or what stud pitchers do I go for?

Dump Jed Lowrie for Cordero since you need a 3rd RP.
If you want a SP easily Jarrod Parker.

Lowrie for Parker would be my move too. With this being H2H and with you owning Strasburg you're going to be pretty PO'd if they shut him down for your playoffs. You need to prepare for that. I would look into moving Harper/Altuve for a SP. If you had to throw in a starter to sweeten it up I would go with Kennedy before Halladay. I don't own him, but I would stick it out to the bitter end with a stud like him.
