    Improve or Stay Put for Playoffs

    With the trade deadline coming up, I am happy with my team right now as I am Currently sitting 4th, but .5 games out of leading my division, and I have been catching people on their good weeks. I am trying to decide if I should try to upgrade a bat some where or try for one more ace or just stay put. Any suggestions or constructive feedback would be great.

    • I'd consider moving Arrieta who is a 3 category player and could be cooling off and a closer like Castillo for a decent utility batter to replace Tavarez

    • Third base and second UTIL are mediocre. I would look to improve that. Pitching is thin as well. Drop Giles and if 'Castillo' isn't CASILLA then drop him. To be honest though, I don't know how you're going to improve these spots.... Maybe sell a guy like Stanton for Rios and Carpenter but it may not be worth it.

    • Bryan: Go Noles from Melbourne ,Fla., Man! 1) Well balanced team. 2) There's a case to be made to just hold,as is,here. 3) You'll be losing deGrom shortly to innings limit so you could say another good SP might be needed for playoffs. I'd hate to trade one of your offensive players for an SP,though. Also IF Wacha can be back before playoffs then you wouldn't need an SP replacement. 4) Pagan is back soon,possibly by Thursday. That'll make your bench even stronger also. IMO,Bryan, I'd stand put with what I have. .5 out of lead is great and easily attainable right now. And if your gaining ground on other leaders I wouldn't mess with a change. The only way I see a change here is if one of your major pieces gets hurt(Stanton,Gomez,Clayton,etc.). Good luck Bryan. See those Noles in Championship game again,bro!
