you look like you need help in the outfield and at SP. i would suggest giving up soriano to upgrade the outfield and pitching. you might have a hard time getting a 2nd basemen as a FA if you have 2nd, ss, and MI as positions though. i'd check to see who's available and consider trading soriano

i think you need help at SP especially.look in the FA pool and try to find a guy who may be not have a great record but has good K's and era. You should see if you can find a middle infielder also in the FA pool. See if Alfonzo or Casey Blake is available. Don't be afraid to pull off a trade that might not look good but will later. See if you can find someone who is big on Teixera and try and trade him. good luck

I would say you should replace Rios, Marrero and Crisp. You might want to maintain a flex spot, which could be used to pick up and drop hot players.

As for pitching, you're good on closers, but I would get rid of Jimenez. Sure he gets saves, but he kills your ERA and WHIP. Also, I think if you can unload Burnett on someone for a pitcher who's having a decent year, then do it. I think that pitchers struggle in the first year back from injury, and Burnett is no exception.
I never smile if I can help it.... Showing one's teeth is a submission signal in primates. When someone smiles at me, all I see is a chimpanzee begging for its life.

sorry, but ur team isn't good enough to place top 3 in a 12 team league, or even top 5. wut u could do to improve your team is trade big hurt and or soriano for upgrades in starting pitching.

Some of your OFs as far as I know are splitting time with people. Thats not going to help you. Your SP has the ability to be good, but so far this season have been struggling. Pineiro seems to be coming around, as does Santana and Eaton. Burnett and Armas coming off of injuries are pretty well unknown quantities at this point but I wouldnt count on much from either of them.
