You don't need so many bats on your bench. I like using a majority of my bench spots for arms. With that said, here is the order i would pick any of those pitchers up:

Harrison (nice k rate, nice offense)
Miller (keeper league, this guy could be great in a couple years, and still contribute this year...considering you don't really have many enticing keepers, this could be a good option)
Hammel (nice k rate)
Maholm (steady)
Detwiler (underrated, great offense)

and after those 5...I wouldn't really add any of them. Except maybe Fujikawa if Marmol is demoted (which unfortunately he probably won't be any time soon).

Guys I think are droppable on your team:

Halladay (this sounds crazy, but he won't sniff the top 50 SPs by year's end, and Harrison/Hammel/Maholm probably will).

There are some other bats I'm not crazy about (Pence and Fowler), so I'm curious what other OF is available? You have Hart on the DL, so maybe once he comes off, Pence/Fowler are your possible drops.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

Short-term I'd definitely snag Boggs to deepen your pitching.
Fujikawa if Motte (dropping Boggs) comes back early.
I see no point in having both Konerko AND Morneau seems you could use another OF or maybe a good combo bat. What is availble for UTL/OF?
I'm guessing you are asking when you get the free spot..
Wonder if maybe you could trade for someone like Prado which would really help your team. Shouldn't cost that much either.

I would try to deal Halladay off first and add Harrison or something like that to take his place. Your best bet is a package of Aoki/Halladay for whatever OF or 3b upgrade you can get.
