Well I would definately trade a closer and something else to get some power in your OF. Personally, I would trade Rivera...for two reasons. 1. You'll get the most in return 2. I don't play yankees on my team under any circumstances.

But seriously, I think you're all set in saves...too much all set. Trade some of that way for some OF power.

dont know about the offense lacking power comment. i think your offense is brutal. great job there. not convinced holliday will have a great year, but you got plenty of bench help (esp with gomes, who i really like). your rp's are world class. your sp's need some work however. definitely trade an rp for a solid sp. with lowry, duke, bonderman, and kazmir, you have potential stars, but there are too many variables with those guys. beckett is your one sure thing. i would feel more comfortable if you got another stud or two.

Love the team. I would trade Holliday, Turnbow and Benitez for some SP. maybe package two of them for one SP or whatever you can get. I would shop those three guys around.

he man who says he never players yankee players has probably never won a fantasy baseball league. their players are SO dominant. You have plenty of pop in that team as well btw

Help me please

Your offense does look to be solid. As others have said starting pitching could be improved. In general I think its good to have 3 closers in head to head leagues and stock up on starting pitching so you can change the starters from week to week to take advantage of matchups and such. I'd move Cordero over Turnbow not necessarily because I think Turnbow is better, but Cordero will get you better starting pitching and I find Turnbow to be highly underrated. I'm sure there are plenty of teams looking for closers seeing that you drafted so many so it shouldn't be hard to find someone to trade with.

Thats my two cents. Take a look at my team if you can:

Must be a Yankee fan. Yes, the Yankees have a bunch of fantasy studs...but it's very easy to field a great team without them. The only guy it hurts me not to draft if given the chance is ARod...everyone else is easily replacable. And for the record, I win a league just about every year...but that's cool, the Yankees haven't won in like 20, so that makes me happy.

I think you are fine offensively - pretty good shape. However, I would look at trading a CL for another solid SP
