I NEED ANOTHER PITCHER BAD! (SP) WHATS A GOOD TRADE I SHOULD PROPOSE. OR WHATS MY NEXT MOVE?
Well, not to be mean, but your assessment is accurate. Pitching scoring is equal in overall value to hitting. When managing your team throughout the year, it is usually easier to juggle the pitching to create enough numbers to win than hitting in my experience. You do need to make room on your roster to make moves. The trades and pickups I suggested are things you can do now, also don't be afraid to drop bench players you won't be using or handcuffing to pick up players you can use. A very good bench player who will never be in your starting lineup is just as good to your scoring total as an empty bench spot. If they are good enough to trade, do it, otherwise, don't be afraid to drop them. Ok, good luck to you friend, it is time for me to do something else.
Trade Jorge Cantu for Zack Greinke, Brett Myers or Chris Young (SD). Drop Navarro for Jordan Zimmerman on the FA list, if he is gone, grab someone like Jesse Litsch or Randy Johnson, you just need bodies. Trade Pujols and Carlos Guillen for Lance Berkman, the other manager's second best SP and his second best closer. Your roster spots are so sparse, if that is your whole team, with no empty spots to fill from the FA pool, you are in serious trouble having depleted your team as you have.
