In May I traded Beltran and Schmidt to get Webb and Sheets. This was while Beltran was missing games with his foot injury and before Sheets got hurt. It really hurt to see Beltran go once he got hot, but Webb has anchored a weak staff and hopefully Sheets will come back strong.
Last month I traded Bobby Abreu, Tom Gordon, and Mike Lowell for David Ortiz, Dontrell Willis, and Micheal Young. It was a trade involving the two last place teams. He really needed the SB's and saves, which is why he accepted it I guess. This was the main one that turned things around.
After acquiring Young, I couldn't find playing time for Lugo and I was thin in the OF, so I traded Lugo straight up for Juan Pierre before Pierre started his mini-tear.
This trade was done mostly to help me acquire a big bat and/or SP later this year. I have up Helton and Hudson to get Figgins and Swisher. It could have been Hudson for Figgins if I had pulled the trigger sooner. I don't really want Swisher, but maybe he will get hot. Figgins or Pierre will be used in a trade at some point.
There are a ton of mediocre to decent SP's on the FA list that I could ride out in spot starts and hot streaks if I get lucky, but I still need one more quality guy. One more solid bat in the OF, and I will be satisfied.
(At least until the trade deadline)
