I think you might wanna consider trading a closer for an ace- I worry your peripheral stats might be weak in pitching without another STUD pitcher..
Me?

The problem with that is, closers don't really begin to be worth something until about a month into the season, when the first couple of closers start screwing up. After that I could probably send Nathan off for a slow starting ace, but it's not something I could really do now.

I agree with the other poster about trading for a starter. I don't know if I would want to give up Nathan though...Maybe drop one of your RP and take a gamble on a SP.

If that doesn't work out for you, you should try doing what you said with trading a closer for a slow starting ace. Man, it would be hard for me to trade Nathan.

Holds must be a category as you've got both Shields and Broxton. Shields would be worth a quality starter as he's pretty much the best holds guy out there. You need to do something though as I wouldn't expect much, if anything, out of Andy Pettitte this year. As for Randy, I think he'll have a better year in Arizona then he did last year, but I also wouldn't expect much from him. As for your wanting to wait to trade closers, I think the only time to trade closers is before the season starts because of how many of them fizzle out. Now is the time to move Nathan or Putz because come April 2 they may have already lost their job. Closing is the most fickle position in Baseball anymore.

Wow, no holds. In that case I would probably drop Broxton for a someone on that list you just posted. It doesn't really matter as they are all pretty much the same at this point. I'd also try and pull the trigger on a deal for Putz. Keep Nathan.

You definitely need help in SP. Again, trading one of your 3 closers for a SP is a good start. Also target undervalued SP's. Based on ADP here are pitchers I think are grossly undervalued:

Anthony Reyes (STL)
Scott Olsen (FLA)
David Bush (MIL)
John Patterson (WAS)

Also, with all your middle relievers (6 total) your ERA and WHIP should be awesome. Consider picking up a pitcher who will get you the wins at the sacrifice of ERA and WHIP, namely Jon Garland, Greg Maddux, Kenny Rogers (and then trade him after the all-star break).

Thanks for the response. Others try helping a brother out:
