Trade one or two of your reserves for a closer. Maybe pawn off Giambi and Mauer for a top 5 closer and another catcher in return. In yahoo leagues, I think Mauer is over rated. If you don't count OPs or total bases, he doesn't help as much as his power hasn't yet developed and he doesn't steal as much as he was projected too.

I agree. You have a lot of old power on your bench / UTL. You should be able to unload one for a solid closer.

I agree with trading a slugger for a closer.

I wonder if you're not better off sitting Helton for Giambi (or playing Thome at 1b for Bonds). Helton's not clearly the top of the pile.

Thoughts on mine? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... p?t=266420

I would do this too for a top closer. Good luck :D
