I just traded for the third overall pick. I have Raul Ibanez as the clearcut top ranked player available. I'm thinking Putz, Capps and Rauch should be among the next in line.

Alfredo Aceves
Aneury Rodríguez
Antonio Bastardo
Barry Enright

Brad Ziegler
Carlos Ruiz
Chris Dickerson
Chris Getz
Clay Hensley
Clayton Mortensen
Clint Barmes
Coco Crisp
Dustin McGowan
Everth Cabrera
Ezequiel Carrera
Gregory Infante
Hank Blalock
J.J. Putz
Jhan Maríñez
Jody Gerut
Joe Crede
Johnny Damon
Jon Rauch
Jonathan Herrera
José Julio Ruiz
Josh Outman
Josh Tomlin
Justin Duchscherer
Luke Gregerson
Matt Antonelli
Matt Capps
Matt Maloney
Max Ramirez

lol this is why I don't do dynasty leagues...

I don't know man, it sounds awful but it's really not going to matter much. I guess I'd say Putz, Crisp, Capps

Thanks for the help on mine.

I tell ya, that is almost too much to wrap my brain around. I do like Capps and Putz with Crisp at a close third. However, I have always been a big fan of Reimold. He is certainly capable of giving you a performance like last year, but I have to believe his upside is right there with the other three.

Looking over what you have, it looks like you could use some help in the middle infield, your pitching looks good for a 20 team league. If you want another closer, Putz is the top fantasy player there that I see. A lot of pundits/experts are calling him a top 5-10 option as the D-Backs closer. Crisp is a decent option, but you already have two CF and good corner options as well. Possibly add him and trade him or Morgan for a need? Couple of decent relief options in Rauch, Gregerson, Capps, Dotel.

Orlando Cabrera - Could be a good back up for you, looks like he is on the downhill as far as productivity at the plate goes.

Xavier Nady - Has a good bat, but seems to be fragile. A couple of his teammates in ARI think he may be the best addition this off season.

Molina and Ruiz seem like steady options to back up Suzuki - Check out Ruiz for his OPS if anything.

Crede might be retiring after not reporting - Jody Gerut has said he is retiring.

I'd take Putz off that list for sure. Even if you don't need a closer you can be sure that someone does, and Putz has way more trade value than anyone else on that list.

I like the idea of taking the name with the best brand name.... Putz... In holds league, Gregorson might get some love. OCab makes sense too as he may become more versatile up the middle.... Perhaps, Yadier Molina in suhc a deep leqague. Suzuki and he would repredent dependable names. Good luck.

So I am officially on the clock. The draft did not go the way I wanted it to go:
First pick: McClellan
Second pick: Putz

At this point, I think my pick comes down to Ibanez and Capps. Would you lean towards Ibanez as an immediate UTIL upgrade over LaPorta, Valencia, Nyjer even though he is 39 years old and is probably not a keeper-candidate?

Of course, there are other options such as Crisp, Damon, Rauch, etc. but I am leaning towards the two above.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Wait on a MRP you can easily replace.

maybe one more starter would be useful, but you can get about anyone. Maybe target Bartolo Colon in a round or two (yankees 5th starter = good upside)

I would DEFINITELY take Putz, you'd be a putz not too, heh.
and for your other pick I reckon McClellan wasn't a bad choice. I would have rather had a back end SP on a good team (like Colon ,Sale, or Minor or someone like that)

If you have another choice to make I'd go with someone that has LF eligibility but someone other than Raul Ibanez. Who else has LF eligibility and is left? Can you give us a list of just that? I'd rather have Coco Crisp, despite the recent issue.
