I would recommend you grab another closer. Here are some guys who are likely available that you should look for as free agents:

- Octavio Dotel
- Saloman Torres
- Jose Valverde
- Joel Pineiro
- Taylor Tankersly
- Armando Benitez
- Ryan Dempster / Kerry Wood
- Seth McClung

Also, I would think you could get a better SS, or at least one with more upside. Guys to check for...

- Stephen Drew
- Jhonny Peralta
- Bobby Crosby

I would take each of the above over OCab. ;-D

That depends on whether you want to keep someone with reliability, or keep someone with great upside. Lowry's more of a sure-thing with what you can expect in his stats (12 wins, 4.00 ERA, 130 K), while Bartolo will probably be hit or miss this season coming back from his torn cuff. We've seen what he can do when healthy, but also saw what he could do when hurting last season.

Willingham is another guy you could consider dropping. Chances are you can find a few guys who'll post similar numbers later in the season as a FA. A lot of Willingham's value is lost now that he doesn't have catcher eligibility.

As to who to grab between Torres and Pineiro...again, it's more of a sure thing versus a risk-reward pick. Torres obviously plays on the worse team (Pirates) when compared to Pineiro (Red Sox), but Torres has a solid grip on the job. Pineiro is the current favorite for saves in Boston, but has competition (Papelbon, Tavarez, Timlin, etc).

Please help me with my team...I posted a link above. Thanks.

lets see last year the pirates used gonzalez and torres as their closers... gonzalez had 24 saves and torres had 12. That is 36 saves for the pirates. Joe Nathan had 36 saves last year. Papelbon had 35. Rivera had 34. I would have no doubt that the pirates would generate saves for Torres

I'd go ahead and drop Lowry and Willingham and pick up both Torres and Pineiro. Closers come at a premium in fantasy leagues and having an abundance won't hurt you, as you can swing them in a trade to an owner seeking saves.

Lowry/Willingham aren't much of a loss for you, either, as you'll be able to find guys with similar numbers as FA throughout the season.
