Thanks for the comment.

I think you still need another RP that can get you saves. As much as I love Zumaya and dislike Todd Jones, I feel like he has a pretty long leash with Jim Leyland. I know Jones has blown his last two save chances already, but Zumaya blew one right before that. Picking up Frasor was a nice move to help during Ryan's absence (especially since he's now on the 60-day DL). Keep watching the WW for another potential closer bc I think you will need 1 more to challenge in the Saves category.

Al Reyes (7), Salomón Torres (6), David Weathers (5), and Dan Wheeler (3) are available on the WW. Is it a foregone conclusion that I should dump Zumaya for one of these guys, or should I let someone like Ken Griffey Jr. go?

Also, I moved Glaus to the DL to open a roster slot to pick up Jon Lester, so that once he clears waivers, I can swap Lester to the DL, in time for Glaus' return from the DL.

I might consider dropping one of my OF like Griffey for Al Reyes. I picked Reyes up at the beginning of the year off of the WW, and I have been very pleased. He's been lights-out and really only had 1 bad outing. Plus, he's had good ratios in addition to racking-up those 7 saves.

I'm not sure you need to carry 5 OF-eligible players. I assume there is a Games Played Limit if you are in a Yahoo Roto League, which you should be able to reach with Sizemore, Pierre, and Wells starting regularly. Then just move Swisher in for a few games when he has good match-ups to make sure you reach your max games played (he's going to be ready to go in a couple of days from what I am reading). I wouldn't drop Zumaya at this point bc he helps your ratios and K's, and there is always the chance that Leyland finally realizes he should be the closer. Just my thoughts. Hope that helps.

Bump... just nabbed Clemens with the 12th WW spot in a 12 team league. How the hell did that clear waivers? Dropped Randy Johnson to make space on the roster.

How's the team look now? Should I have dropped Lincecum instead? I'd prefer youth to an ageing hipster like the Unit, but age hasn't caught up to Clemens...yet.

Thanks for your feedback. Good move on Roger, and I think you picked the right guy to drop. Your team looks good -- nice blend of power and speed on O, good pitching. Maybe a 1B upgrade if Swisher doesn't get it going, but looks good.
