Is there any other holes anyone sees?

1B- Carlos Pena
2B- Chase Utley
3B- Mike Lowell
SS- Erick Aybar
OF- Carlos Beltran, Hideki Matsui, Kosuke Fukudome
Util- Nate McLouth
BN- Dustin Pedroia
BN- Jacoby Ellsbury
BN- Brad Hawpe
BN- Evan Longoria

Im also thinking of trying to work a trade for Braun, using probably Beltran and another player. Would that be a good idea?

I would probably try and trade Mclouth while he is hot because I can't see him being this good for the rest of the season.

I guess we could all ask when is Pena going to reheat up, or will he? If not, you're hurting at 1b. I really like Utley and it seems he is carrying your team. You have a few slow starts from some players, which i hope will turn around soon. I say you sit with Aybar until Tulo returns, cause you will have to find room for him, and Aybar has been fine thus far.
I really like your pitching, except for Chris Young, i can't see him turning it around this year. Otherwise its a solid staff, with few young studs like Bucholz and Jurjens. I'm not completely sold on the closers though.

And i agree, using McLouth maybe as trade bait getting Braun would be awesome. He is definately turning things around quick and we know he can have a major hot streak.

Yeah, I would make that trade. Probably obvious, but I would prob try and trade someone else before Beltran. Your team looks good though, I like your top 3 pitchers.

I think Aybar is good enough to help with the loss of Tulowitzki. I think Pena is your weakest link for now. His average has to be hurting a little. I would trade for Wright but not with Beltran. Try to do something else for that deal. Pretty good team though. Please help me

Thanks for the help on mine and sorry for the late response. I like your team a lot but I would trade for a speed threat, someone like Juan Pierre...you know he will be a reliable source of steals and he shouldnt be too expensive.
