You could get more pitching and seeing Gagne isn't a sure thing yet, I'd look at getting a mid-level closer to help out some.

Good team. I think you are close to a serious contender. I think you need a little more starting pitching. Radke is not going to cut it. You are hoping Escobar is BACK, and that Cain pans out. I would look for one more proven starter. I would try to do it without giving up none of my hitters if possible. They are pretty solid. I dont know how to post a link but I have one I would like you to check out. It is my keeper league draft. I appreciate it.

You dont need any more closers in my opinion. You already have 4. If Gagne does not pan out you still have Benitez and Dempster. I would even look at dealing one of them for a starter. Look for a team that is in serious need for a closer. You should be able to make something happen there.

IMO, jettison a closer for big power...MarkTex is juicy but I 'm fraid Thome's near the end (maybe I'm crazy)

Thanks for Rating my team. Your team looks strong at first glance. Varitek in the 11th is a great pick! So is Peralta at 9! How many Teams in this league? Those picks stand out even if its a 10-teamer. You may be a little light on power, but I'd address SP first. I'd look to move Gagne, hes got alot of value right now after an optimistic ST report. Personally, I think hes overvalued right now, as his durabilty has to be a ? right now. See if you can get a Beckket, or even a Buerhle for Gagne.

I would agree, try and get another Starting Pitcher for Gagne. Most will overpay for a closer like him, espesially if they are week in that area. Try targetting them first...You can always pick up another closer once the closer merry go round begins...just be quick to jump on the FA wire...

Very solid on bats, but you have a couple question marks on CP with Gagne and Benitez (don't ever count on this guy). You might want to try and trade one of them (Benitez) for possibly another starter. I don't know how many IPs they allow in your league, but you should have another starter in your rotation.

I disagree with the closer need, I think you are set there with Benitez and Dempster, I think you need one more solid starter...

I like your team overall, but you've got more closers than necessary. Like everyone's said before, see if you can deal Gagne for a decent SP. I'd also consider dealing him for a big bat, other than Tex you're pretty light on power.
