Need Some Feedback - Can't get over the hump!

Postby felixthecat011 » Tue Jul 26, 2011 11:09 am

10 team, non-keeper, 5x5 league. Very competitive, with 5 teams within 6 points of each other. I have been hovering around the 2-3 spot, but can't seem to break through. First place team just made a deal to address their biggest weakness, so I'm thinking I need to do something to bolster the squad for the final third of the season, and take advantage of any potential trade deadline moves in MLB.

Here's the situation in the standings:

Team Above » 71 661 153 630 202 ---- 881 57 ---- 3.158 1.172
My Team 3rd 68.5 659 152 616 130 .2732 863 50 115 3.429 1.176
Team Below » 67.5 644 149 609 110 .2709 859 40 102 3.432 1.177

Here's my roster:

C Carlos Santana, Cle
1B Prince Fielder, Mil
2B Robinson Cano, NYY
3B Ryan Zimmerman, Was
SS Jose Reyes, NYM
2B/SS Alexei Ramirez, CWS
1B/3B Eric Hosmer, KC
OF Hunter Pence, Hou
OF Jay Bruce, Cin
OF Nick Swisher, NYY
OF Travis Snider, Tor
OF Colby Rasmus, StL
UTIL Brett Gardner, NYY

Bench Emilio Bonifacio, Fla

DL Shin-Soo Choo*, Cle

P Clayton Kershaw, LAD
P Michael Pineda, Sea
P Jhoulys Chacin, Col
P Jordan Zimmermann, Was
P Brandon Beachy, Atl

P Andrew Bailey, Oak
P Jose Valverde, Det
P Joel Hanrahan, Pit
P Drew Storen, Was

Bench Erik Bedard*, Sea
Bench Chad Billingsley, LAD

I just picked up a few players recently, hoping for turn-arounds, like Rasmus (2 days ago) and Billingsley (before his last start).

I'd like to upgrade Bruce, and get Bonifacio in there while he's hot. (One possible move would be to flip Reyes for Ryan Bruan, then ship Bruce off for an arm [Ubaldo?] to the team who is stacked with arms and about to run out of starts, since I need wins bad.)

Any comments/suggestions welcome.
