At the start of this season I am having a difficult time finding any traders in my dynasty league. Typically I like to have a stacked starting lineup with multi-positional backups so that I can build a big rotation of pitchers. I am looking at some middle reliever specialty guys who can help drive down my pitching peripherals, and always looking for the next big ace. Unfortunately I just don't have the space on my roster to do the kind of WW mining that I enjoy. So what do I do with this roster to make space?

W, L, SV, HR, K, WP, HLD, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, K/9, OBPA, WIN%, SV%, QS
3rd: C. Davis
INF: A. Gonzalez
UTIL: N. Cruz
BN: Bruce, Pence, Ibanez, Maybin, Atkins, Figgins, Ian Stewart
4SP: Lincecum, Hamels, Billingsley, Cain
2RP: Fuentes, F. Cordero
3P: Lindstrom, F. Francisco, Villanueva
BN: Volstad, Zimmerman, Price, Brett Anderson
My first instinct is to trade because I believe everyone has value. That hasn't worked this year. Second is to drop some aging guys like Figgins or Ibanez, but I am having a really difficult time doing that because they will almost certainly outproduce anything I plan on picking up, and they just don't belong on waivers. I am really high on Stewart and Cruz, so-so on Maybin and Pence. My main pickups I want are Gordon Beckham and Trevor Cahill.
