The issue with me having too many 1B was just from picking up the best available players but yeah thats why im shopping konerko..... anyone i should trade him for specifically??
Reliever is your biggest need right now. Sure, you have 4 closers, but in a 10 team league, there are probably at least 2 other guys with 4 closers. You don't *need* another closer, but you could definitely stand a guy like Scot Shields who will help your ratios more than any starter you're liable to be able to trade for, and will give you a good number of K's and W's compared to the number of innings he uses. He might even get a chance to close eventually.
The thing is, seeing that third generic P slot filled with a starter seems like a huge waste to me. Your starter only needs to take up a slot once per week, and if you look to be approaching the IP limit, you're even better off sitting him against bad matchups. In yahoo leagues, it tends to be an advantage to have enough relievers for all of your RP and P slots. And those 2 extra 1B's aren't doing you much good on the bench.
