Wow, talk about one underachieving team!

Right now, there isn't a lot you can do. I would not sell low on the likes of Cano, Markakis, Guerrero, Fielder, etc because you just won't get what they are worth back in return and it will end up hurting your team in the long run.

What you could try to do is sell on some one like Derrek Lee, and try to get 2 good position players in return. Try to trade Lee for two 3rd - 5th round position players.

Please help in return:

I agree this team is very underachieving, it's tough to wait it out or just trade for someone who's hot. I would probably package a middle of the road starter (Maine/Cueto/Jurrjens) along with an underachiever (Francoeuer/Vlad) and try to get a solid hot player and a closer. I think you have too many starters and maybe need another reliever or two. Try to get someone like Billy Wagner/Huston Street and get a hitter who's hot, and you think will stay that way, not exactly sure who but you get what I'm getting at.

Thanks for the help on my team,

i would stay put, your pitching is good and your hitters will come around.....cano will pick it up in the second half
