I'm not sure really. I just grabbed Brown because a guy in my league held him on his bench for the month of April and dropped him 10 days ago. Then when that guy vetoed one of my deals I thought it would be fun to mess with him and pick up his precious Brown haha. Childish? you betcha. But it's all gamemanship. His veto was bush league....

Jokes aside, I have looked at Brown for a while, so I figured it would be worth making the speculative grab. I just hope his call-up is soon. Sounds like Charlie Manuel wants him up. My guess is he could get called up once the Phillies get back to Citizen's Bank Park. Supposed to have some power and be the complete package. They could use him now for sure. But I could be wrong and it could be June.

Wouldn't bother with KYJ, you don't have anyone to drop for him. With regards to the closer team, why bother? Walden is nails, I don't see any rationale in trying to upgrade him by adding in a decent player. I like the team as is, it's a hold in my book.

I might drop Dempster for Johnson. I think Johnson is worth more than Dempster as far as waiting for them to come around. And if you don't need him its more likely that someone will need a 2nd baseman at some point than a starter so you could trade him away for something you do want/need.
Also you have great starters anyway (possibly the top 3 lol) so Dempster doesn't need to start he will just be eating innings that your big 3 should be working with their complete games.
