Drop Vazquez at SS. You've still got 3 or 4 weeks till the season starts. You'll be able to pick somebody off the FA wire the day before the season starts, just get whoever is the best available at that time. Instead use that spot to grap a high rated starting pitcher and see how he pans out over the next 3 weeks. Cook and Maine are not sure things in your line-up now. Keep an eye on them and whoever you decide to pick up and if you need to drop a pitcher later, drop him right before the season starts. You can never have enough pitchers in a head to head league.
Try to upgrade at 1st base. See if anyone is willing to sell Ryan Howard cheap. Since he's off to crappy start, you might be able to get him cheap. Trust me he will pick up the pace. He's gonna crank out about 30 more homers this year and should bat around 270 at least the rest of the year. Try to snag him. With your plethora of outfielders (now that you have Bruce) you might want to trade one away.
Good move on dropping Napoli. Posada will be back and will be a nice plug there.
I rank your team as an 8 on a scale from 1-10. I would rank it as a 9 if you didn't have 3 people on the DL. You might need to drop Troy Tulowitzki and/or Clint Barmes and add a better short stop. But you need to keep Jorge Posada because his numbers will pay off in the long run after he gets off the DL and healthy again. You have a very good team though. You should be very successful with it.

T M, you must be a complete moron, Josh Hamilton is not a sleeper. A sleeper is not a person who already has 58 rbi's and is on bid for the triple crown of the AL. Try and pay attention or maybe watch some ESPN once and a while.
barmes, tulowitski, posada are on the DL. diceK might be joining them.
your IF is solid, although i consider loney an average fantasy 1B. your OF is pretty strong although I would deal Nate McLouth since I think he's playing over his head. All the major pre-season rankings had him at around .255-14-48 with about 19 SB (see over here http://www.fangraphs.com/projections.aspx?pos=of&stats=bat&type=chone). not to say that the rankings are always right, but it gives an insight as to what scouts thought of his talent level. you could start hart there, but you could probably use a little more power.
your starting pitching is strong for a 12 team league. you have 4 decent closers which gives you an edge. if you needed to, you could deal one of them for any needs. try loading your team into http://benchcoach.com to see where your team projects to finish the season and where your team is weak.
i would give your team an 8 or 9.

i just dropped Napoli for Mr. Jay Bruce. I figure I'll take a hit for puttting a catcher on the DL as my starter since I'm playing the two worst teams in my league this week and the next plus Posada should be back by then. Now I figure i have a strong outfield to deal for a fantastic first baseman or Shortstop any ideas
