Thanks everyone!

You guys have me thinking about the Wieters thing a bit more since I also think he takes a step forward this year. Problem is its tough to not keep at least one closer in our league to start, especially a solid one. I had 4 closers all of last year and they really pile up points for you...its one of the reasons I ran away in the points category. Not many teams have 4 and its really an advantage. So I think its just nice to have a start on trying to have 4 closers by keeping Axford. While we also use setup men, they give 12 pts for a hold compared to 15 for a closer and 10 points for a win, and we all know its tough to pick a consistent setup man once the top few are gone. I know I could pick up a closer in season but its nice to already have 3 solid ones and then try to target the 4th one with a sleeper/in season pickup. I also worry that knowing how vaiuable closers are, many will be kept by the other teams.

So that, and already having Montero, is my reasoning for keeping Axford over Wieters. I guess I could keep Wieters and then pick up one of Axford, Marmol, or Motte in the first round or two but I think I would rather keep the solid choice in Axford rather than doing a bit of gambling on the others. If I don't keep Wieters I would definitely consider targeting him in the first round though.

Thinking on it...what do you guys think about this reasoning? Thanks again!
