I'd definitely trade a couple of your OFs for a another quality closer. If it's onl an 8 team league, you're going to fall out of Saves quickly.

Crawford, Beltran, and Berkman are more valuable than any closer IMO. Who on my team do can I afford to lose in order to improve my pitching, and what SP or RP should I target.

Ill help you if you leave a link. I just want to try and make a move while my team is hot and improve its chances in the long run.

Your team is pretty good, you have everything. If anyone, I'd say deal Beltran or crawford. Crawford just because hes a devil ray, and Beltran just because hes a met. haha. And in return get a star pitcher, thats probably the weakest part of your team. Your closers are fine. Except Shields, hes not even a closer, hes just a setup man. He'll help era and whip, but you want saves from a closer.

But then again, i have no experience with 8 men leagues, so I wouldn't know how good the average free agent is, etc.

It's a no brainer for me. You have to trade one or even two of your 3B. Atkins value should be sky high at the moment and you could possibly get a Top 10 closer for him which you need. If Atkins won't seal the deal then use Blalock.

It may even be worth trading Chavez for someone like Rivera or Wagner. That way you still have an excellent platoon at 3B.

I might trade Barrett and Miceli/Rodney for another catcher, like Pierzynski or Jojima and a better closer. Barrett might be overvalued, he is not going to hit .300 all year.

You also have a lot of depth at 3rd, so you could always trade Chavez or Atkins (I would start Blalock over Chavez if I were you also).

You could use either a SP or a top closer.

Why not package a guy like Gomes or Atkins with Guardado or Shields (while he is still valuable) for a better closer?
