Casilla is only eligible at 2B. Aviles is struggling a bit now.

OK, in my most recent roster moves-
I've dropped Matt Capps for Damaso Marte,
I've dropped Chase Headley for Chris Davis,
I've dropped Billy Butler for Shaun Marcum and stashed Marcum on DL,
I've picked up Kaz Matsui and stashed him on the DL,
And i've picked up Clay Buchholz.

I now have 9 SP's, which even though i'm -46 in IP, is obviously too much.
Sabathia, Harang, Ervin Santana, Marcum, Guthrie, Parra, Baker, Garza and Buchholz.
How would you rank them Grey? I was thinking of offering one or two of them along with Aviles for a SS.

Those are all really solid moves. Offer Garza, Parra, Harang, in that order. (This is not the order of their value but the order that I think you should move them because of their perceived value compared to actual value. For instance, I like Guthrie more than Garza but I don't think you'll get anything for him.) Or offer Marcum/Aviles as soon as Marcum returns.

I just dropped Buchholz again for Kobayashi. I was thinking about dropping Bell either.

I think i'm gonna offer Marcum and Aviles to the Jays fan in my league for The Riot. He has Escobar as well, who do you like better? I could use The Riot's SB's.

OK Grey, another trade question for you.

I just got offered

Berkman, Slowey and Pedro

FOR

My Hart and CC(no periods)

I countered with

Berkman, Michael Young and Cain

FOR

Hart, Aviles and CC

Bear in mind i'm very weak at 1B and SS, with Swisher and Aviles there.

Would you approve?

SS: Aviles
OF: Sparkakis

Over the past 5 weeks or so, my team has gone on a tear, adding around 30 points and moving up to 4th place.

Thoughts on my situation, and how i could improve further before the deadline?

Switch out Bell for someone with a legit shot at saves. Buchholz? Fuentes? Dotel?

All gone, it's a very active 14-team league. Nobody out there with a better chance of saves than Bell does if Hoffman gets injured/blows a host of saves/ends up in a nursing home.

Wins are tough to predict, but I think your pitching staff might be weak on them. What say you go get us some wins?
