Ever since D.Lee went out Ive been looking to trade pitching for an outfielder who can produce, but I didnt get any deals done. My league doesnt trade much, with only 2 or 3 trades done this year. However, they are very active still. Anyway, here's a couple of things I thought about:
1) Pitcher and Outfielder for upgrade in Outfield
2) Closer (Wickman, Jones) for SP,RP Closer and move Shields into an RP spot.
3) Trade shields to a team with 1-2 closers only and a bad ERA for something?
4) Stay put and hope my Under-performing offense picks up the pace.
5) Whatever you think.
Can anyone out there help me improve my team or give me some advice?
