Both Braun deals are horrible (for you). Braun is being drafted as a top 20 player this year. Sabathia and Bedard are not top 20 players. Bedard has very serious issues with getting injured as well. He is great when healthy, but both of the past two seasons he has been injured down the stretch.....avoid him since it is not a roto league.
Your pitching staff is pretty good. You could use a stud like Webb, but it is not a necessity. In a 10 team league, there should be ample players on the waiver wwire. Get rid of Varitek and Bonds. Add two RP with chances to close. George Sherril is an idea. Marmol/Wood/Howry could be another. Brandon Lyon/Tony Pena have an intriguing situation. I would recommend heading over to the baseball leftovers forum and checking out the closer situations for all 30 teams. There are bound to be some available players to help your RP pitching situation with out wasting significant offensive players in a trade. I would NEVER trade signficant pieces on the offensive side of the ball for relief pitchers until I am at the deadline and have seen if I could pick up a few RP on my own. In a 10 team league and with the high volitility of RP, you should easily find 2 RP that will get saves. Jeremy Accardo could be a sleeper, so keep an eye on BJ Ryans health.
If I had to tell you to make a trade, I would say look to make a 2 for 1 with your pitching for a stud SP. See if a Vazquez/Joba offer could land you a guy like Webb. I would not recommend dealing Aramis Ramirez. I would not recommend dealing Ryan Braun (who has or will have OF eligibility in 10 games.....). You could potentially upgrade 1b, but Adrian Gonzalez will be a consistent force there.
As I said, drop Varitek and Bonds. They are useless. Pick up two pitchers or a pitcher and a hitter, and then reevaluate. I'm guessing you will see that after making those moves, you really have very little tweaking that you need to do. AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT MESS WITH THAT OFFENSE!!!! You have an offense that is potentially top 3 in all categories. Do not mess with that....it is what will win you the championship.
