Currently sitting in 2nd place, but feel like I could use a pitching upgrade. Should I trade Pablo Sandoval for Vinnie Pestano and either Jake Peavy or Tim Lincecum? If so, which SP should I target? Also, do you see any other holes I need to address to make a run at the championship? Appreciate any help.

I wouldn't. Your pitching staff is amazing for a 20 teamer already. You should be able to get much more for Sandoval in your setup. Only caveat, if you personally think Lincecum will return to Timmah greatness, get him. But he might come cheaper than Sandoval at this time.

I would go the other way and take it, Zimmerman can cover 3B just fine and going over the top on the SP allows you to draft hitters more as needed and, though you cant bank on it, allows for interesting trade bait for hitters with a surplus.

Theres certainly merit to standing pat but I would take it

Keep Sandoval. Your pitching staff is already very good.
