    What to do

    I am currently 2nd place in my league. It is a standard 5x5 roto league. I really do not see a hole in lineup. However I must be missing something. Here is my lineup.
    Posey, c. Davis, Kinsler, Everth Cabrera, Longoria, Bruce, Gordon, Ellsbury, Beltran, Corbin. Gio, R Soriano, A. Sanchez, CJ Wilson, Perkins.
    My Bench consist of Matt Adams, Pablo Sandoval, A Cabrera, iglesias, granderson, Medlen & J. Parker.

    Where do you think I need improvement. Who would I try trade for.

    • Your starting pitching is pretty weak. Gio and Sanchez are solid. Corbin has been good but I just keep waiting to regress. Wilson should probably be a F/A. Medlen hopefully will get better, but I'm losing hope slowly.

      I would be going after one Ace. A guy you can trust even more than Gio to put up solid numbers across the board every 5th day. I'd also look at upgrading your shortstop. Your best trade pieces to try to get those things are Corbin while he's still hot, Sandoval, and maybe Granderson if you can find someone who still thinks he may play this year. Also, is 2 RP the max you are allowed to have? I'd drop someone like Iglesias or Asdrubal to get another RP if someone is available and you can play him.

    • SP/RP is probably your biggest need. What O categories are you weak in? close in? Avg maybe? I would try to watch MLB trades to see if you can nab a new closer. Brewers/Astros, etc. might get new closers. I'd be more concerned about trading over-performers and injury risks at this point. If I were to trade, Davis, Ellsbury and Corbin are top candidates. I like Davis for cont'd power but doubt he can maintain Avg. Ellsbury could end up on DL again and regress in Avg as well. Corbin will probably regress all-around. Try to deal Corbin asap.
