Not too high on Blanton. And which Perez do you have?

Since you don't have as much offensive depth, I'd try to move a starting pitcher to improve your closer situation. Maybe package Beckett (or whichever one of your stud SP you like the least) with Fuentes to try to land a Nathan or Lidge type closer.

I dont know if you can, I would definitely try and trade Beckett and like walker or fuentes for a top closer. You have two SP coming back from the DL but it seems the blisters are back for Beckett. Dont worry yourself with that problem and deal him. Try and get Rivera, or one of the top closers (I mention Rivera because he has been very good but no opportunities yet). As to trading one of your OF, I am not too convinced about the depth of your OF especially with Sizemore filling in. You have more depth at SP.

Maybe you can package one of your outfielders with one of your closers for stud closer.

Solid team.

From the IF to the OF, to the Util, you've got everything covered, very nice offense.

I love the SP for the 2nd half as well, the only issue I see is the closer position. Try and trade one of your SP's or a package of a SP and one of your bats for a stud closer and serviceable SP, otherwise looks like your ready for the playoffs. ;-D

Man...once Huff starts hitting you'll be set. Hafner is coming around, and Mench looks solid. With Size on your bench, you can mix and match him...I like your chances.

Thanks for mine!

I have to agree, good looking team for a 12 team league. I wouldn't worry too much about the closers, they pop up all over the place over the course of a season. ;-D
