what size/kind of league?

I can't imagine you're too far off the lead with that team. Pretty solid all the way around. I'm not a big Giles fan (in fantasy terms) and I don't think Alomar's the answer either, so you might look into a 2 bagger with some speed. Lowell/Chavez is plenty of 3 baggers, might look for a trade opp with one of those 2 gents.

Guerrero will really solidify your OF. I'm not big on Byrnes, keep an eye on him. Seems to really be cooling off.

I wouldn't do anything with your pitching. All these guys should have great 2nd halves. You'll have a rotation of Halladay, Perez, Santana, Pettitte, Miller, Washburn and Wells. Wagner and Kim closing? Like I said, depends on your league but in most, that's a top notch staff.

I think you should sit tight. Unless you're in a very small league, this is a good-looking team. Washburn and Alomar are projected to have better second halfs.

I agree with TheRock, though - if you want to make a move, you ought to be able to find someone to trade you a good pitcher for Chavez or Lowell. If you think Lowell is going to cool off or Chavez is going to heat up significantly, you can definitely get a lot for Lowell. I don't have any opinion about the likelihood of that, though, save that I'm slightly skeptical about the prospects of Chavez doing much better in the second half than he did in the first.
