Offense looks good, I'd bench or try to trade Drew and Cust for closer help. Arroyo has been terrible and Rauch is no longer of significant value. One question, how did you get Pujols and Reyes?? Thanks for the help.

Damon has sucked, and Gange is not getting save opps. Those are 2 thing I see right away.

its a dynasty leauge so i drafted pujols #1 overall last year and i stole reyes in the 4th round last year before he broke out. And Rauch does have value since he gets holds which are an added catagory in my leauge.

Unfortunately you don't have many sell-high candidates. Your outfield is really underperforming but they are big names. All three - Hideki, Damon, and JD Drew - are well-known players on high profile teams and could probably bring you some trade value that exceeds their actual value. I'd work that angle.

You have a simular problem than I have as our teams look great on paper but just are not performing. 2 things I see is you may not be getting enough saves with Gagne and Damon and Drew are really struggling. I may try to upgrade them by packaging Gagne & Damon for an elite player in the catagory your struggling or I may wait as Clemens is coming back, Damon should rebound and Gagne is rumored to be dealt.

I would package JD Drew and Zito to upgrade at for an outfielder with more steals and offensive potential. You can then put either Willis or Clemens in there to pitch...they will be almost as good as Zito if not better. Bad luck with Oswalt losing his leads lately but he will get Ws eventually. I would sit it out with everything else though...just have some performers that arent doing much right now.
