My pitching seems a little light. Should I try to trade Nelson Cruz for a good pitcher since he is a big name and is injury prone? If so, should I go after, sayyyy a Jordan Zimmermann, Matt Moore, Latos, Gallardo or Morrow to solidify my starters as a safety net since Grienke and Peavy are injury prone themselves ? I could then fill the empty hitters spot with either Josh Rutledge or Todd Frazier, who are both FA and then just drop Fiers. Thoughts please

I think that would be a solid move for you. Although I am not sure you are going to get one of those type of pitchers straight up for Cruz. Cruz has fallen further in drafts that I expected him to.

I was thinking Matt Holliday & Nelson Cruz for Adrian Gonzalez & Matt Moore.

i'm assuming this is one of those leagues where you can only start 1 RP at a time, but 12 offensive players per day. you do have the OF's to make a trade such as that. But if you did that, wouldn't you only have 11 offensive players per day, leaving 1 of your utils open?

There are 2 daily RP spots but I only use one of them with Motte, which frees up a spot to stream an extra 2-start pitcher every week.

Every offensive player in my signature starts everyday and I don't have a bench bat. If I made that trade, I could drop Fiers and pick up Rutledge or Frazier who are both FA's

I would def do it, and grab frazier. If someone needs some power and has a Lester, Kennedy, Josh Johnson Samardzija, Fister Kuroda type.
