You can easily trade away one of your elite offensive players for either several good pitchers or a great one with a decent offensive replacement. Your team is the type of team I like to field: dominate offense, and compete with pitching. But right now you are SO dominant on offense - that lineup is unbelievable - that even losing a guy like Hamilton won't hurt you too much. I don't know where you are in the standings but I'd guess you're up there, the only thing holding you back is losing pitching every week (hence why you are here, asking for help). If I were you, here's what I'd do:
Trade Hamilton for Santana and another decent pitcher/hitter. Or Greinke. Or Sabathia. Or Billingsley. Or any elite pitcher. You need someone to anchor your pitching staff and get you the occassional CG. While you may not like losing an offensive stud, your offense is FINE without one of your guys and the benefit to your pitching by having an ace will be tremendous.
What's the point in dominating hitting cats when you could shave a little bit off the top and compete in the other 50% of categories - pitching - as well? You HAVE to think of starting pitching. But I know where you're coming from b/c I love hitting as well.. but your offense can afford losing Hamilton or anyone else. Pull a deal.
