Unless holds are a category, I don't think you need middle relievers. I think I can see three problems:

Your OF isn't quite as strong as you'd want it to be in an 8-team league.

After Pedro and Clemens, your starting pitching is suspect.

If you have daily lineup changes, you don't have enough closers.

I'd start by seeing if there are any closers available on the wire. After that, it might be worth seeing what you could get for one of your catchers. There are bound to be several teams that could use an upgrade behind the plate, and you could get very solid value in return.

Good luck! ;-D
