Hmm this team is pretty freakin good for a 12 team league. I think there's a reason that you're 1st and those guys you mentioned are FAs! Steals is the only major weakness I see on the team but then again, Reyes has only stolen 1 base so far. Maybe you can get an outfielder with a little speed to complement Reyes. How about this as an idea. Sell high on Raul Ibanez for Corey Hart (+/- a bench player or something). Considering their play so far, Hart's owner might go for that especially if he has a lot of speed. Then you just picked up 20-25 steals and probably didn't lose too much elsewhere. Maybe since you have so much pitching depth, buy low on Sabathia with an eye towards September...

Here's me:
