Any of these guys worth picking up? If so, please rank. Also, would it be nuts to consider dropping Ubaldo for another closer or another bat right now?

Matt Capps
Sergio Santos
Vincente Padilla

About to log off for the night. Return help will be in the morning.

In a 10 team H2H 5X5, non-keeper.

Capps is the best option to me by far. And do NOT drop Ubaldo.

Santos is the best by far to me.
Nice stuff, no runs yet.

Yeah, Santos is your best option easily. And no reason to drop ubaldo. Also no reason to carry 2 catchers. I'd try to package Martin and Ubaldo for an upgrade somewhere!

I would go Santos as well. I'm not convinced Capps will keep the position. Santos has done well. I would also hang on to Ubaldo and hope he turns it around. He's a projected top 15 starter in fantasy. I'm in an 8 team league and he was just dumped and I missed out on him on waivers. He'll come around....

Thanks for the help guys. Not making a move yet. I was just thinking Ubaldo because he's performed the worst out of all my SPs so far. Can't drop a position player for a closer because I'd have an open slot up there.
