umm... my first question here is how many teams are in this league? based on whats available on your wire, I'm guessing it's a 10-team.. but looking at the players on your team, I would guess 8.
its a 10 team league, not super deep (24 man rosters).
no idea how some of those guys lasted as long as they did, but other than Lester I didnt really take any pitching until after round 10, and basically punted saves... 3 of my closers are waiver wire lotto winners so i got lucky there.
pitching went really really early bc i think several manages were over compensating for having both Wins and QS starts as counting stats.
(ex - halladay/timmy went #9/#13 overall, kersahw, lee, felix, CC, greinke, ubaldo, verly, all went in the top 35. and then an inexplicable closer run kicked in during rd 6)
you easily have enough power to move one of those bats and still have the most power in your league.. Send Prince, Bautista, or Holliday away for a very good 2B and good pitcher.. one of those player should easily return you a weeks/kershaw combo (or something similar)
+if you move, say, youkilis, you can move bautista to 3rd and get granderson in your outfiled which should add some speed..
your advice regarding trading a bat is solid. however i tried to move both Fielder and Youk but so far nobody is wiling to trade for fair value.
best i was offered was Pedroia/Oswalt for Bautista/Latos but i would be takin a blood bath there.
The owner of Kershaw wouldnt even swap Kershy for Fielder straight up (and he owns Weeks as well, ugh)
Cano's owner (my brother) wont budge, and Kinslers owner wants pitching.
That leaves my targets as 1) M.Young - same owner as weeks/kershaw... he may trade me young + hamels or greinke but he overvalues them.
and ( 2)Uggla, but again i wouldnt be getting any speed and the pitching options are limited on his team to CC who he wont trade, carpenter who is scary, and cain who is solid but no k's. and the guy is a die hard Giants fan.
