my pleasant dilemma: too many solid closers

Postby duckbillgates » Wed May 04, 2005 6:10 pm

Upon Gagne's return in a few weeks, I'll have him, Dotel and Ryan.
Problem is, we have weekly roster changes and only two RP slots.
Obviously, I won't be doing anything until we see whether Gagne looks like he'll return to his dominant ways.
If he does, should I look to deal a closer or should I just hold all three for insurance?
Keep in mind, saves on my bench aren't all bad, because I'll be keeping them off another team.

Batting: AVG, HR, R, RBI, SB, E, KO

I've never understood the weekly roster change idea with such deep benches. I can nearly promise that some of those SP will never see the light of day.

In any case, I'd hold onto them all for now because it's a roto. Later in the year, you can use them as trade bait to gain points in the most effective stat. You could trade now, but you don't know what stats are going to be stalled and which will be competitive in 2-3 months. H2H I'd say just trade one when Gagne is back.

that's a solid team.

you could trade to upgrade C or 2B, but i'd lean toward C since utley will (hopefully) play full time soon enough.

Tell me about it. We're required a backup at each infield position. No DL slot. We also have a salary cap, so getting a full lineup in under that can be a challenge.
This league has been around for 8 or 9 years, and I've been in it for two, so I don't want to rock the boat suggesting big changes.
