getting rid of heath bell

Postby browdee12 » Tue May 24, 2011 9:58 am

Im in a 14 team h2h keeper league (1 keeper) with obp and holds added to the 5x5 format. Im punting saves and need some advice. I have avila, trumbo, pedroia, chipper, tulow, matt joyce, b gardner, stanton, ortiz, and ryan Roberts. Mauer on the dl. Dominic brown, austin jackson, denard span are on the bench. Id like to pair bell up with an offensive player and get a stud but how much value can I expect to get out of bell. thanx.

He's still recognized as one of the best closers, so his value is good, but not great. I could see Bell/Joyce fetching an upper level outfielder like Pence/McCutcheon/Crawford(If the owner is sour on him)/Cargo(same as Crawford). Joyce has his best value right now and pairing him with Bell should give you some nice bargaining power. Shoot high and try to get Cargo or someone like that, then temper your expectations, but do not take less than someone like Pence.
