NL only league with 12 teams. 5x5 ROTO with OBP instead of AVE.
Auction/contract keeper. Haven't declared keepers or had this years auction.
I'm very stacked in OF (Heyward, Cargo and Fowler all under $10), have no closer, and am more playing for this year than future years.
Was thinking of sending Dom Brown at $8 for Heath Bell at $10.
Bell has to be released after this season.
Brown is $8 in 2011, $12 for 2012 - 2013 and then has to be released
Clearly this is a shorter term gain at expense of longer term. It also goes against my usual, I hate trading hitters for pitchers. But this is a really, really deep league, you can't find saves off the waiver wire. Putz is probably the only good closer who will be in the auction, and will probably go for $25.
I have the team to go for it this year, getting a solid closer is key, but am not sure it is worth the cost.
