Your obvious glaring weakness is saves. You're not even going to compete with just one closer. Keep a close eye on some of those messy bullpens in spring training to see if you can pluck some saves from the WW. Maybe try to work a trade if an owner is looking to trade. Your offense is definitely solid and your pitching is nice as well.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.

I agree, you're going to need some more closers to compete in the saves department. I like your overall balance on your offense and your SP should put up some nice numbers as well. Just stay out on the lookout for closers.

how many closers would you recommend for a h2h league? at least 2?

The least I'd carry is 3.

I usually like to go for 1 top-tier closer (like Joe Nathan) and 2 above-average closers (Like Broxton and Capps).

I was going to offer a deal for Jenks, the guy who owns him needs a starter, would you think a deal with either Greinke or Lackey would be a fair deal?
