Dump all those extra infielders: Loretta isn't supposed to start, Crosby has been a not so "promising" talent for 5 years, and Hillenbrand brings little. No one will grab them anyway, so if you need one later, they'll likely be around.
Giles (OF) is fading fast. I bet Chris Duncan (ST. L OF) is on your FA list - look over his stats and note he only had 280 ABs last year!
Pick up some pitchers!! Another RP would be nice - see if Tankersley (Fla) or Torres (Pitt) are still available. If not, don't worry - there is always turnover during the season.
As for SPs, look for Maddux (won't get you many Ks, but his traditionally low ERA and Whip should help and he'll get some wins). I doubt they are still around, but see if Lilly (ChC), Escobar (LAA), or Olsen (Fla) are still around in the FA pool. However, I bet John Maine (NYM) is out there...he might be worth a shot (check out his numbers from last year).
Hope that helps and that you aren't in one of my leagues..
i would suggest you drop loretta and crosby since you have no need for them, and frankly no one does. your offense is very balanced overall, with good steals, average and power numbers.
as for pitching. well thats weaker. myers is a solid starter. but you lack that ace pitcher to anchor your team. and you will have some very high era's and whips on this team. prior is risky, but i have drafted him on my teams since i think he will rebound. shilling gained quite a bit of weight, but he is in a contract year so there is incentive for him. i think your mistake was paying too much for closers, when you could have drafted a starter.
i would suggest picking up a starter like maddux or penny if they are on waivers. or trading one of your hitters like texeira for an ace pitcher.
some good pitchers that might come cheap: john patterson, bartolo colon,
