League format is a 12 team H2H keeper league where each team keeps 6 players each year. My team is currently 4-3 and 2nd in total points so I'm looking to do some damage this year my roster was

C Mauer, Joe
1B Gonzalez, Adrian
2B Kinsler, Ian
3B Longoria, Evan
SS Gordon, Dee
OF Gonzalez, Carlos
OF Morse, Michael
OF Yelich, Christian
U Teixeira, Mark
Bench (C) Mesoraco, Devin
Bench (SS) Cabrera, Everth
Bench (OF) Granderson, Curtis
Bench (OF) Myers, Wil
Bench (U) Markakis, Nick

SP Bauer, Trevor
SP Cueto, Johnny
SP Greinke, Zack
SP Miller, Shelby
SP Phelps, David
RP Romo, Sergio
RP Tomlin, Josh
Bench (SP) Cobb, Alex
Bench (SP) Garcia, Jaime
Bench (SP) McHugh, Collin
Bench (SP) Peavy, Jake
Bench (RP) Papelbon, Jonathan

Just traded
·Myers, Wil RF TB
·Cueto, Johnny SP CIN

·Ryu, Hyun-Jin SP LAD
·Hamilton, Billy CF CIN
2nd round draft choice
7th round draft choice

Did I get enough value out of Cueto here or give up on Myers too soon? I think Hamilton is the more exciting OF in this deal even though the SB's are not as valuable as in ROTO leagues they still help

Should I try to flip my draft picks to further stack my team or upgrade a certain POS? or is this team pretty well rounded with Ryu replacing Cueto, Garcia acquired this week for SP depth and Cobb coming back into the rotation, I don't see any glaring holes but I could possibly upgrade one of my top 6. Thoughts appreciated what move would be your next move with this roster?

Interestingly enough Ryu just got the win tonight vs Cueto, they both pitched well and Ryu was actually riding a perfect game into the 8th inning. Also from my perspective Billy Hamilton seems to me like the better outfielder between him and Myers. Is there THAT much separation between Cueto and Ryu? I really like Ryu since I drafted him in 2013. Coming out of this deal with 2 draft picks for 2015 I'm wondering why exactly you think it's such a terrible trade Grey? All due respect could you provide a little bit more insight on this deal?

Really appreciate the responses as always and great site!
