Currently in 7th, not making the playoffs, Head to head league, standard scoring plus walks and complete games.

c: Willingham
1B: Howard
2B: Weeks
3B: Cabrera
SS: Peralta
OF: Crawford
OF: Vlad
OF: Holliday
DH: Helton
bn: Napoli
DL: Hunter

SP: Halladay
SP: Bush
RP: Hoffman
RP: Putz
P: Zumaya
P: Soriano
P: Linebrink
bn: Radke
bn: Bucholtz
bn: Davis
bn: Gagne

Basically, my hitting should carry me. I thought about trading halladay for paplebon, and putting him at SP, allowing me to start 3 relievers and 3 closers per night, punting wins, ks, and CGs, but winning ERA, WHIP, and Saves. I also have 2 open spots (Gagne will be dropped in a sec, and Napoli is not needed). Should i stream some pitchers with the last two spots and got for all the pitching stats, or play safe with the relievers and split the pitching stats and hope to win hitting.

any ideas?

I'm not sure I'd be dropping Napoli right now. Willingham hasn't shown anything recently to make me take him off my bench and Napoli seems to homer every second day. Other than that its a nice batting lineup.

There should never be any need to punt stats.
Although their ratios are nice, I think carrying three non-closing RP's is too much. I'd let Soriano go as he's the least likely to get a closing gig this year. With him and Gagne gone, there's your two spots for starters (three if you let your spare catcher loose too).

If you're wanting to go for a full-on relief effort though, scout out Fausto Carmona. He'll fit in at SP and may snag some saves if Wickman gets the boot. Plus you can't argue with a 0.84 ERA over the last month.

What pitchers are available in FA? I'd look to replace Bucholtz for another SP. Becuase I think even if you just focus on relievers the Sp would still hold your team back. Good offense, but keep napoli in case Willingham underperforms.
