How is my team? Should I send out some trades for better fielders?
How many teams are in your league? If its a 12 team league, you have incredible relief. I have K-Rod, Jenks, and B.J. Ryan in a 16 team, points league and im ranked #2 overall in saves. I'd rank relief a 10/10 for you. Starting pitching is good, but not very good. Try and trade Lee right away while his era, and wins are good, he is going to stop. Litsch is not an ace and is not very consistant try and trade him. How ever I think Ervin Santana is top 10 in the mlb for starting pitching. Lester is an ok number two man and is getting a lot of run support from the best team in the AL behind the angels. Catcher, and first (Berkman, and Molina) should stay. Chipper is good, but will not come close to hitting 300 and is old and going to get hurt. Try get Ryan Braun. Offer Chipper for Braun, of rejected throw in B.J. Ryan. Iwumara at 2B is not bad considering he scores alot of runs but you have alot of relief so try C.J. Wilson Iwumara and Fukudome for Ian Kinsler (Yes, over utley, and uggla) Lastly try and trade reynolds, hinske, and Cliff Lee, for someone like Burnett (pitcher) and Quentin, or hamilton if you think it would go through.
Overall I'd rate your team a solid 8, try my sugggestions.
Iwamura is only good if ur in a deep 14 man + mixed league, other wise go waivers on him. Id shop tulo and one of your better relievers for like an orlando cabrera or go waivers for SS too... and hinske should be a waiver wire drop add guy. Fukodome is a solid #3 OF. keep him there, he draws walks for runs!!
