    Help me improve this dynasty team!!

    This is a 16 team, H2H dynasty league where we roster 25 players and the stat categories or 6x6 with OPS and K/BB added to the mix. It's a dynasty league so virtually every notable prospect is rostered. Some notables that aren't rostered include Jordan Lyles, Simon Castro and Dee Gordon. Anyways, I have acquired the team 3 years ago after the previous owner completely demolished it and I've been trying to get it into contention ever since. The league is dominated by 3 or 4 teams that are absolutely stacked so a lot of the team in the league have very thin rosters. Here's mine:

    C-Nick Hundley (I dropped Chris Ianneta for him, he should be a solid option. Kurt Suzuki is on waivers so I may go after him)
    1B-Ryan Howard (Should I trade him? For some youth)
    2B-Chris Getz ( I like the SB production. Could pickup Alberto Callaspo instead and may do so sometime soon)
    3B-Ryan Zimmerman (Solid 3B and he's young)
    SS-Stephen Drew
    OF-Nick Markakis
    OF-Juan Pierre
    OF-Angel Pagan
    UTIL-Brandon Belt :)
    UTIL-Rafael Furcal (would like to trade him but i would get virtually nothing in return. maybe trade for a prospect?)
    BN-Dustin Ackley :)
    BN-Brett Jackson

    SP-Daniel Hudson :)
    SP-Chad Billingsley
    RP-Hong-Chi Kuo
    RP-Brandon League
    P-Tyler Clippard
    P-Sean Burnett
    P-Brett Myers
    BN-Kyle McClellan
    BN-Kevin Correia
    BN-Brian Duensing
    BN-John Lamb :)
    BN-Martin Perez
    BN-Manny Banuelos :)

    I really like the prospects that I've got. I was lucky to get Belt. Him and Moustakas were the two guys I was targeting to pickup with our initial waiver pickups . Moustakas is virtually un-attainable because the owner who has him want an arm and a leg for him... Anyways, how should I improve? Obviously i'm in no place to contend for this year. What do you think of my prospects? what young guys/prospects should I target and who should I trade to get them? What players should I not trade at all? Any and all advice is welcomed. Please dont come in here and bash the team, i'm well aware of it's faults! Thanks:)

    • your team is pretty bad to be blunt...and the youngsters you're happy about are far from seeing major league action...this team surely could be improved by the waiver wire.

    • You're at the one spot between pitching and hitting where you've got to commit to one or the other on your next trade or pickup. If you end up trading Howard, don't go for anything low. A solid, trusted pitcher, and maybe a respectable batter is what you should target. Howard's in decline, but he's a big name so you can get alot for him.
