Can't say without seeing your roster.

You didn't even tell us who your other closers are.

Yeah more info would be good. I would never trade Jeter IMO. Not with the lineup he's in. I would deal little Matsui though.

Trade Jeter, if theres a yankee fan in your league you could probably get Gagne for Jeter.

Looks to me like you are 10th in waiver priority. Not sure why you seem so certain that you can pick Kaz Matsui up. When I first looked at your draft, I almost figured "why bother doing anything, Huskers has this league won" (I mean, the guy had Lieberthal, Sweeney, Soriano, Chavez, Garciaparra, B. Giles, Pierre, Abreu, Cabrera, Lowell, Ensberg, Teixeira, Crawford, Reyes, Morris, Dotel, Myers, Webb, Isringhausen, Rhodes, etc.). Then I checked out the transactions, though, and saw that Huskers had dropped Cabrera, Ensberg, Pierre, Crawford and Rhodes (admittedly, he picked up a couple of SPs, which he needed, but nevertheless, he could have easily traded for better with what he dropped). So, maybe you do have a chance.

As for closers, Rhodes and Nathan are now on waivers, so pick 'em up if you can. Now that I look at the waiver wire, Chacon and Speier are both free agenta, so just pick them up now (drop Timlin and Cormier). There are sure to be some changes during spring training that will allow you the opportunity to pick up a couple of more.

I'd keep both Jeter and Matsui (if you can get him) for now. Maybe after you've had a month for things to shake out you'll be able to use one of them to upgrade 1B, 2B, 3B or the outfield (or replace Brown or Everett when they get hurt). Ensberg, Cabrera, Burnitz and Milton Bradley would be good starts.

Oh yeah, and of course Pierre. He should probably be your top priority right now.

I wouldn't get too excited about Matsui yet, he has done anything here. I think that you should keep Jeter and if Kaz ends up being good trade him.
