SP - Halladay Slowey Dempster Randy Wells Blackburn Porcello Nolasco Kershaw RP - Soriano Wood Franklin DL - Webb (SP)
So, I've got one open spot. JP Howell (RP, new Tampa closer), Nolan Reimold (LF, CF), Cody Ross (All OF), Nyjer Morgan (All OF), Jason Kubel (LF, RF), Hermida (LF, RF), Podsednik (LF, CF), Chris Coghlan (2B, LF), Rick Ankiel (All OF), and Willie Bloomquist (SS, all OF) are some interesting free agents. There are obviously a lot more, but these are the ones who qualify at LF (and the new Tampa closer) since I'm not entirely sure I want to depend on Dukes just yet. Whoever I get (if a hitter) is most likely a month rental, as I'm getting Damon as my LF once Manny returns (strange trade I just did).
Tough choice, but I'd have to go with Cody Ross. Yeah he's not a big name, but I've had him for the past month and he's been a consistent producer. He bats low in Florida's order, but always seems to get his hits and RBIs in.
Howell for me. Looks like he's pitching himself into the bulk of the save opps in TB and being that you only have 2 sure closers it'd be nice to add that 3rd. He's a better bet at long term value than any of the hitters who look to be monthly rentals IMO.
