ok, so with guys not hitting, and injuries, lopez fits my team perfectly with all the positions he plays (2nd, 3rd, ss, and lf) plus his speed is something i really want. my problem is that, he only pitcher i have worth dropping is zimmermann, and he just pitched another beauty today, and span is hitting well. and he plays all three OF positions.

I guess if you don't want to drop those guys the next best candidate in my eyes is Rodney. I don't see him holding the closer spot in Detroit all year long
Don't drop Buehrle! How can anybody say his peripherals aren't good? Consistently around a 3.70 era 1.27 whip with 140 k pottential. Not elite but def. worth a spot in any fantasy rotation, def. can't drop him for Lopez. All that said, drop Rodney and then try to move Loshe while his value is up for an upgrade at closer. Here's mine. Please take a look?
Rodney is definitely the most droppable from your team. It'll also allow you to get Lester or Lohse into your lineup. If it ends up hurting too badly to give up the closer, try to move some of your pitching depth for an even better closer. But for now, if you're set on getting Lopez, Rodney is really the only drop I see.
I hate to give up on closers but Rodney has a lot of comp. in Det. If you have to give up a starter it would be Zimmerman. I know he had another good start today but Lohse and Buerhle should be more reliable for the rest of year .
