Definately your closers need some work, but hard to do without giving up your core players, you may be lucky to see playoffs but I doubt you can win it all

Thanks for the feedback. I guess the one thing I can say since some people seem to think that I'm in some sort of dire straits with my closers is that they simply don't carry as much weight in my league as they seem to in others.
I mentioned it earlier in the thread, but in this H2H league it in not uncommon at all for someone to start 5 SP and 1 RP on a given week. Other times they may opt for 4 SP and 2 RP but I've not seen anyone start more than 2 RP in the 2 years I've been in the league. I think mostly people are afraid of losing W, QS, and K if they start too many RP. A couple of scoring categories have been added that may entice people to start more RP this year but I don't really expect that to be the case.
So anyway, just wanted to get that out there. You're right, though, in that I could get screwed over if Marmol ends up as the setup guy and Bell tanks. No doubt about that. I don't want to have to scramble for RP and end up with a scrub. But traditionally in my league closers don't make or break your team. It's definitely the biggest question mark on my team though, IMO.
Aside from the RP discussion...I'm going to try to move AGon if I can. I can play Votto at 1B and Dunn and Davis are both eligible as well. Outside of RP what would position would you target in trade if you were me? SP? OF?
Also, you may very well be correct in that my team looks like a possible playoff contender at best but I'm not sure how you can say that when you have no idea what the other teams in the league look like.
