10 team NL keeper league. At auction ($260 budget) I drafted the following and I'm getting absolutely b-slapped in all pitching categories. My pitching is keeping me in the basement. Is it time to look to upgrade through pitching? Or should I trust the talent and hold on a bit longer?

Lincecum - $15 (kept)
Zambrano - $16 (ouch, I know)
Hammel - 8
Niese - 4
Richard - 2
Latos - 7
Morton - 1
Qualls - $17 (damn you Shandler!)
Lidge - $8
F. Paulino - Just traded for him

In the reserve rounds ($0) I picked:
Hanrahanrahanrahanrahan
Betancourt
M. Parra

What say you gentlemen? Should I trade Victorino ($24) for a pitcher?

I'll explore Victorin's market value if there's clear cut sell high opportunity. Those two Hodgepadres should bounce back a bit, but you still need Hammel and Paulino to reach their potential for you to compete. I'll pay close attention to waiver or rookie callups. There are also probably some nice middle relievers left in 10-team NL league. Be a Mr.B, if circumstance requires. Carlos Villanueva, Kris Medlen, Edward Mujica, Jenrry Mejía and Peter Moylan are all cheap solutions.

Thanks for the advice. Most of those relievers are already gone. It is a pretty deep league - 10 teams, 31 roster spots of you count the reserve. My issue with trading Victorino is that I'll end up a bit light in steals. Here is my team:
C - Ruiz
C - Baker
1b - Fielder
2b - Phillips
3B - Freese
SS - Tulo
MI - Iwamura
CO - Kennedy/Fontenot (Ouch!)
UT - Drew
OF - Upton
OF - Ethier
OF - Blanks
OF - Coghlan
OF - Victorino

I think that is a pretty decent line-up for power but I need Coghlan, Iwamura, Upton, Phillips, Kennedy, Tulo to steal double digits for me to compete...if I trade Victorino.

I'm not so sure it'll be so easy to trade Victorino @ $24, especially to a smart owner who knows he won't be in the leadoff spot much longer. (and I own him on both my teams H2H and Roto.)

You might be right about trading Victorino but his value at $24 shouldn't be the hindrance because our cap isn't particularly tight.

Do you agree that I need to make a move though?

Agreed I don't trust anyone after Lince. I don't think losing Victorino's steals will hurt you that badly. Maybe Gallardo's owner is unhappy with his high WHIP and ERA?

Gallardo is too cheap to trade for. I'm actually looking at Johan's owner - he has Halladay and Kershaw and Cueto.
I'm thinking about a Victorino/Zambrano for Santana/Byrd type of deal. He also has Carlos Gomez, Drew Stubbs, Nyjer Morgan and Jim Edmonds.....is this worth it for me?

If you can get get Johan for that package, plus a the streaky lead-off hitting Byrd...more power to ya. Good luck!
