See if anyone will bite on Konerko in a trade offer.

Alex Sanchez has not done much recently either (but has good season numbers), see if you can trade him as well for another speedster.

You may want to try to trade Barry Zito for two "B Type" SP - along the lines of Washburn, Sabathia...not sure what the likelihood of that happening but I personally think this would be quality over quantity though - I could be wrong, but two good SP is better than one.

It may not be late to trade Freddy Garcia either.

WoodyWilliams you may be stuck with him but someone might bite.

You have a lot of name guys, which might help you unload them on to someone who isn't too savvy.

First of all, there should be guys who are better than Miles, Tucker and Polanco on the waiver wire. See if you can get anyone. It is a 14 team league I see, so perhaps the cupboard is truly bare on that front.

As for pitching, Williams and Lilly are way too inconsistent. You might want to drop one of them and just start picking up guys each week who have a favorable matchup. I know of some people who have used this strategy and have come out OK in the end.

Keep Garcia, because he'll be better with the White Sox. Other then that, your pitching is very weak. Your offense is also mediocre. This is one of those situations when your draft might of been your kiss of death. If I were you I'd shop Aramis and Manny for 2 players and try to get 2 or 3 for 1 deals and improve your weak positions. Most of the guys on your team I've seen on my 12 team waiver wire. Just see who bites on the ramirez's and try to get good quantity for excellent quality.
