I agree. Aim for about a .300 AVG and most hitting categories will take care of themselves. At the very least you will be in the upper half in each category. Absolutely grab at least one, preferably two, "serious" closers. There are always guys on the wire that can get you a cheap win. Good Luck!

Here is the list of closers from last year who were very likely available:

Worrell -38 saves
Biddle -34 saves
Borowski -33
Carter -26
Kolb -21
Beck -20
Kim -16
Hasegawa -16
Cordero - 15
8 more with 10 or more saves

If you didn't draft any closers but managed to pick up half the people on this list, you would have been in great shape last year.


That's nice if you have a spare 4-5 spots on you're bench and you can get them all AND start them all.
