    Is this team good enough?

    I just clinched a playoff spot and I have a 16 game lead in my division. The categories are Runs, Hits, HR, OBP, RBI, XBH, SB, Wins, K's, Walks, Saves, ERA, WHIP, QS
    My team is as follows
    C: Stephen Vogt
    1B: Anthony Rizzo
    2B; Jose Altuve
    SS: Danny Santana
    3B: Pablo Sandoval
    OF1: Jose Bautista
    OF2:Josh Harrison
    OF3: Carlos Gomez
    UTIL: Josh Harrison
    UTIL:Matt Adams
    BN: Brian McCann
    BN: Shin-Soo Choo
    BN: Wilin Rosario
    BN:Yangervis Solarte
    BN: Conor Gillaspie

    SP: Clayton Kershaw
    SP: Felix Hernandez
    RP: Rafael Soriano
    RP: David Robertson
    P: Chris Archer
    P: Scott Kazmir
    P: Bartolo Colon
    P: Tyson Ross
    BN: Mike Fiers
    DL: Andrew Cashner

    What positions should I look to upgrade via the wire?

    • Pitching is very good. Upgrade it though with quantity. Drop Rosario, Solarte, Gillaspie (maybe Choo too if you can't trade him) and pick up good options at SP to contend better in Ws and Ks. Guys like Chase Anderson, Carlos Carrasco, Liriano, Vargas, Wada, Santiago, etc.

      See of you can get more closers. Maybe trade a guy like Archer.

      Now to the offense....

      - Why is Harrison starting twice? Do you have 2 UTIL or 1....
      - if 2, you need to upgrade that second UTIL somehow, you can't have Choo or McCann starting
      - although I don't love your SS option, he will do, but 3B needs to be upgraded
      - C is probably fine as well

      To upgrade these positions, you may need to sell some pitching because it can't come out of your lineup. Good luck.

      • The trade deadline has already passed so I'm forced to work the wire and I didn't realize Harrison was starting twice I have Duda in the second utility spot and Panda has done decently as of late and I think he can continue it through seasons end and if all else fails I just plug in Harrison. Should I drop a catcher and use it to add depth?
