CDM Challenge update, Mid-season crisis

Baseball is finally almost back. Finally! Anyway it's a good time to check in with a CDM update for South Side Sox and current dilemma. In case you don't know what I'm taking about the details are here. I'm currently 4th in the league with 189.5 pts. I trail 3rd by 18 pts, 2nd by 23 and 1st by 25.5. The problem? I've burned thru the player purchases and now only have 2 left. With 2 August taxi squad adds that gives me only 4 new potential players the rest of the year and I've got injuries.

In the division and overall rankings I'm down further than I'd like because I ignored missing wins and saves too long. The recent adds of Sale and Soriano have helped but it would be nice if Peavy actually won his damn games.Catcher sucks but really can't afford to do anything about it. Went on the cheap with Kipnis at second and I wish I'd gone with Cano. SS is a mess.OF has been the saving grace. Yes Kenwo it hurts that I dropped your boy McCutchen but not much in all honesty. I'm pretty sure Viciedo hates me. I dropped him early. He went on a prolonged tear. I added him back and he sucks again.

Immediate questions. SS. Gordon goes down. Tulo is still out, so all I have is a slumping Lowrie. Worst Gordon was a SB machine. I'm going to ignore for the short 3 game week but I have to make a decision by Sunday. Tulo could be out another month. Can I take a zero that long? If I burn another purchase that leaves 1 purchase left for injuries.

Papelbon or Betancourt to play the majority of the time for the 4th relief spot?

Looking at my roster and position in the standings below, possible candidates to acquire with the final 4 if not operating only on injury replacement.
