You have 3 guys getting saves currently and it's only a 10 team league so you might be able to find another closer. But you have PLACIDO POLANCO starting at UTIL so it's worth it.

I would do it in a heartbeat in your position since it looks like you're going to get killed in Saves anyways even with Bell. H2H leagues are the easiest to manipulate, and punting a single stat like Saves is a legitimate tactic. I say go for it!

Appreciate the input, guys. I didn't want to give up Bell, and I sensed that he may go lower, so I countered with Chris Perez and Fuentes for Eithier. We'll see if he bites. Anyone else have an opinion?

Depending on how much the other values saves, I feel like you could potentially swindle more out of it. I still like it the way it is. Finding another CL or more saves won't be hard, they might not be as lock down but still the SVs will be out there... more Ethier's won't be... pull the trigger and grab up a Sean Burnett, Sale, Farnsworth guy... Good Luck
I guess there was no curse... Boston just sucked for 86 years...

Closers come and closers go. By their very nature, in H2H, closers are 1-category players. Even the best closers, like Mariano, will give you maybe three saves, three perfect innings, five or six Ks in a week. Other than the saves, you can find three perfect innings and six Ks from good middle relief (hello, Aaron Crow). As already said, pitching numbers in H2H take the least effort to massage. Good hitting is what wins championships in H2H. I would make that trade, yes.

He bought it. I got Etheir. He got Chris Perez and Brian Fuentes. I'm satisfied, but will be even more so if I can find one more newly-named closer. Or, since I now have one OF too many, maybe I try to move Alex Gordon for a low-level CL, capitalizing on his hot streak. It's a longshot, but I may try it.

10 team, I'd look to see if Chris Sale is available... looks like they are almost ready or already have given up on Matt Thornton...

Also, keep an eye out for the TB savers, who knows who will get the call in the 9th... Farnsworth, Peralta, or even McGee
And can't forget about them Jays, once Francisco gets healthy is Rauch going to retain the job or is Francisco going to be the main closer...

and IF Papelbon gets traded HELLO DANIEL BARD
