How many teams? Scoring?? Unless it's real big I'd find replacements for Gose and Wilson in FA. Saunders available to stash on your DL?

I figured I was missing a lot of detail. Standard 5x5 H2H Cat.

Saunders? I have Smily is on my DL right now, I like his potential

Who are the best FA available? I'd have Cain in the OF and look to replace Gose.

Yeah he usually is, It was just an off day for KC.

FA Batters:
Avila, De Aza, Cahna, Lamb, Iniacarte.... not much available.

FA Pitchers:
Peralta (RP - vulture saves), Harang, Heston, Jimenez

Should I look to trade one of my pitchers?

Absolutely trade a SP. You've got a lot of depth there and your whole lineup is super shaky. That's a lot of scoring offensive positions and not very many of your players are reliable or consistent at all. Target 2B and OF.. I would pick up Lamb.

Which pitcher would you look to give. Should I drop Texeira or Gose for Lamb?

I would try to squeeze a combo like Felix/A-Rod for something like Betts/Holliday.. hoping for the lucky chance that whoever owns Betts doesn't feel all of the hype. Maybe a Dozier owner already has a couple other 2B who are putting up good numbers and you can pull him. If you can send A-Rod and get an upgrade at 2B as well as a reliable OF, I would drop Pagan for Lamb and put him in the CI slot that A-Rod leaves vacant.

Trade to potential team biases. Mariners fans might lean for Felix even if a trade is in your favor. Obviously look at everyone's team and target managers who have a lot of IF or OF depth but no ace SP.

Thanks for your help.

You like Gose and Teixera more than Pagan?

I'd try and package Tanaka plus Tulo considering you have Reyes and Tulo could net you someone big. Your team is really good though so I would probably stand pat.
