I'm pretty pleased with my team, however I would like to upgrade one of my closers and maybe add another quality starter. Is there anyone that I can afford to trade away? Any possible waiver wire guys out there that could help my pitching staff? Who would be the first guy on my team to drop if I did get someone off waivers? Any general suggestions about improving my team?

I found last year that 5 closers is too many. You'll run away with Saves and others will be battling for 2nd and 3rd place. Find someone with 1 or 2 closers and see if you could trade one of your closers to someone else.
I think Baldelli is going to have a good year.
Good luck
Please look at my team and comment

i find you have too many closers too
and that orvella might not be closer actually since his poor performance made the manager say they will go closer by committee

anyways, i think you should use him and another guy and trade for either a solid starting pitcher (like #2/3 starter for a solid team) or a guy with at least 80RBIs

Infield - B+ I think you did a great job here.
Outfield - C+ Sorry, I don't dig Tracy. Tracy has never hit more than 10 home runs in the minors. Holliday is strictly a platoon player.
Starting Pitching - B+ I love your three starters but only three?
Relief Pitching - B+ Love Billy Wagner. Love the quantity over quality theory here.

Overall - B. You will need to get one or two more starters. You will probably have to wait a month to see which RP to trade high, but I think you have a lot of talent to work with so you're in good shape.

Not sure what free agent pitchers are available in your league, but if Chris Young, Odalis Perez or Kelvim Escobar are there, they shouldn't be. If those guys are taken, maybe Brad Radke?
