Help me out guys. I am in second place in a 10 team H2H keeper league (5 players). My closers have been terrible all year and I just cant seem to find the right ones especially after this latest Turnbow blow up. although I did get lucky and nab Carmona. Anyway here is my team.
C IRod
1B Pujols
2B Utley
SS O. Cabrera
3B Wright
IF R. Howard
OF Crawford
OF Sizemore
OF Holliday
OF Monroe
Util Morneau
Bench Crisp
Bench H. Kendrick
Bench M. Sweeney
DL Weeks
SP Liriano
SP F. Hernandez
SP Clemens
SP Verlander
SP E. Santana
SP C. Hamels
RP S. Shields
RP Saito
RP Jas. Davis
RP Dempster
SP Prior
DL J. Patterson

UPDATED: Pending trade of Morneau and E. Santana for M. Rivera and KRod. Also updated my current lineup.
Here is a list of some free agents let me know what you think I should do. Granderson, JD Drew, Mench, Jenkins, Alou, Upton, Del. Young, T. Hudson, Millwood, Cl. Lee, Linebrink, Howry, Marte, Baldelli, Feliz, Bonds, Hermida. Please help me out so that I can tweak my team. Leave a link.

drop Bonds, he's probably just going to ride ur bench anyways and is having to many problems going on right now and just doesn't seem to have his head in the game. Ur going to have to trade one of ur bats to getting a good closer, since that seems what u r seeking. U can trade Morneau for a Wagner, Lidge, or Gordon; or u may have to trade Howard to get a Papelbon/Jenks. Post ur league to see who they will be willing to deal for to get an idea what they may seek to give up that ACE closer!

I would definitely drop Bonds. If you're desperate for saves and need a closer Kolb is closing now for the Brewers so after you make sure Turnbow is out for good you could exchange him for Kolb. I don't know how long he'll have the job or how often it'll be closer by committee but its worth a shot if you need it. Upton and Young are also great keeper guys so you could try one of them. Your hitting looks pretty good otherwise except for a couple guys.

Honestly, except for closers your team is pretty nasty-good. On the hitting side, all I would do is drop a bencher like Bonds and take a prospect like Upton. Upton's due any minute now, and once he gets his groove you'll be able to dump Peralta. In terms of closers, grab Kolb if you can, and Wickman, and keep your eye on Linebrink. Any of them can save your closer sitch instantly. Oh, and hang on to Hamels, he'll only get better from here!

Cheers...

Thanks for your help!

I would drop Bonds and pickup Kolb. You're gonna have to trade one of your studs, as one poster suggests (Morneau or Howard), for a top to mid-tier reliever like Nathan or BJ Ryan -or, create a package deal for either of those guys.

Good luck!
Is it our year yet, dammit?!? GO CUBBIES!!!

I would drop Bonds, he is doing and going to do nothing this year. I might think about picking up Tim Hudson, esp. if you need wins, I think he'll have a decent 2nd 1/2 down the stretch as the Braves try to make the playoffs.
