I feel like your offense lacks a little bit of thunder. I might try and see you could swap utley and one of your OF (i'd suggest hawpe) for a power Bat at 1B and lesser 2B and move swisher to the OF. I've heard rumblings that willingham might actually play enough games to be catcher elig this year, so maybe he'll make you keeping him worthwhile. People are so cautious of maggs that i doubt you find the value you wnat for him. The reason i suggest selling utley, is that 2B seem to have a ultra fast decline, and it's conceivable that his is near. Well that's really the secondary reason. I personally think there's a ton of 2B depth therefore diminishing utley's value, and you need to take some chances to get out of being a mid-level team. I would target b-rob, kinsler, or kelly johnson depending on the OF bat you end up dealing. I might also consider weeks if you're the gambling type. I think your team is still rebuilding and just like in real life sometimes selling your superstar is the best option. Also, i think edwin enc will break out this year, and if laroche wins the job that will give you another peice to move via trade. I would probably drop jacque jones and bartlett. I don't think your team is quite good enough to compete for a roto title right now, so middling players with limited upside have no place on your roster, especialyl if they're not even the starter. Try picking up any guys that might have position battles seemingly bringing down their value: Milledge, longoria (kind of), bruce, carlos gonzalez, steven pearce, maybe brignac since you're a little weak at SS...you get the point.
Pitching looks solid. Though I think you're a little short in the K's dept. I think you made the right choice to not pay for closers. unless you catch lightning in a bottle, i would move your closers in a package to try and pick up another impact bat.
Look for 2 for 1 deals and try and consilidate your talent base into a few elite players.
