Do I need another closer? Santos is avail. WHIR

Postby ron paul for pres » Sun May 15, 2011 8:44 pm

I've got two closers (H Bell and J Walden) and I never win the saves category. Santos is available, but I don't have any pitchers that I consider dropable. Can't drop a bat. Should I stand pat?

I'm in a 10 team H2H 5X5 league. I'm in first place in my division (by a wide margin) and second overall, so it's not like I'm desperate to make a move.

Santos is good but you answered your question. I'd stand pat for now. Maybe try to work a 2 for 1 trade and upgrade somewhere and clear a spot for him. better do it quick though, I'm surprised he is as available as he is in leagues...

Yes you need another closer but you have noone to drop for Santos.

It looks like the job isn't his. It looks like it partially belongs to Boggs again. I would stay where you are for now.

My initial thought was to have you drop Martin as there isn't really a need to carry 2 catchers, but since you're utilizing him at your UTL slot... if you dropped him, you'd still need to add another bat to fill that hole.

that being said, I'd try for a 2-for-1 trade which would allow you to pick Santos up. Santos looks to have the job locked down in CHI, and they always seem to be playing in close games too, so he's definitely worth an add.

please help:

Boggs is in St. Louis. And Salas looks like the hot guy there.
Santos is in Chicago.

I would drop Martin.
Santos hasn't given up a run, plus you need 3 closers more then you need all those SP or Martin.
