Pedro Alvarez and Adam Lind are the first two names I would look to get rid of. Alvarez could bounce back but he's been horrible this year. I still have him on my bench, but rarely if ever start him.
Depending on how deep your free agents are, you should be able to find better replacements.
Your pitching should continue to hold up alright, but I might try to bundle a couple together to get a top of the rotation guy. Lots of people like Pineida these days.
Zimmerman might still be out for a bit, but he's a good option at 3B when he comes back.

First thing I would do is get Prado in your lineup over Alvarez if he is 3B eligible in your league. Whenever K Mor. gets back that will also be an upgrade over Lind in your utility spot if you choose to do so. I completely agree with the above poster on everything, look for Pineda and other guys who are hitting better compared to Alvarez who may be on the WW. You should be fine once you get Zimm and Morales back.

Not sure why you still have Burnett. Looks like Storen should be getting the saves, but if there are names like Francisco, Boggs, Farnsworth, or Aardsma on the WW, they will help out more than the Nats closers will.

On the WW there is a few decent closers who would you choose, you could rate them in order.

Matt Caps
David Aarsma
John Axford
Joe Nathan
Matt Thornton
Chris Sale
Frank Francisco
Mitchell Boggs

Pick two or three whom you'd like and please explain why.

All these guys are on your waiver wire? Weird. Anyway you should immediately pick up Boggs, Capps, and Axford (In that order).

I'd prob get rid of a SP like Drabek who can't be doing much for you and jump on some of those WW closers.

Probably Caps then Thornton would be my top picks out of that list.

Here is my trade question:

I'd not panic and for now just drop Burnett and pickup Capps. Then watch for direct FA replacements for Alvarez and Lond; players like fuld and lowrie for example.

Help me in return? viewtopic.php?t=428415
