Your SP are fine, your bats are OK, but your RP are marginal. I'd drop one of those bench bats for another closer. I know based on your scoring that closers dont count as much, but they do count.

I also dont see many SB out there. How you doing with that?

moves

You definitley to solidify your team a bit more. You need to be using those P slots to start an extra closer or two, even a good ratio setup man. Look for Mcclung who might be closing for tampa soon. Or trade two bats for a bigger bat. Somthing along those lines.

Help me out please...

I also think that there are a few little moves that you could make to put your team over the top. OF, suprisingly enough I think you're ok at. The three biggest holes I see are at 2nd, SS, and RP. Giles has been just about awful all season, he's looking better lately, but, I don't think that I can trust him to take me through the finals. I have always had a bad taste in my mouth for Cabrera, I can't remember why, but I will NEVER touch him in any of the leagues I'm in. I'd suggest dropping a Jay Gibbons or maybe Young to add some quality setup men. They're a cheap source of good K/9, whip and cheap wins that most people simply forget about. But, overall, you have a very solid team. Some astute moves and you could very well make that team one to be reckoned with!

Thanks for the thoughts on mine!

Does Glaus have SS elgibility in your league? If so, then you could expand your batter search to also include 3b. I think I would look to package Konerko with someone to shore up your weakness at 2b/SS (or 3b depending on Glaus). Overall this is a pretty solid team for a 12 team league, if your SP turn in quality starts every week you should do well.
