Right now it looks like you're punting on Saves (if Borowski's velocity doesn't come up that's Hawkins' job)... that might not kill you b/c you probably have a better team for holds than the rest of your league, but that would be the first thing I'd look into.

Also, I hate your bench (not a personal thing, I'm sure they're great guys). Reggie Sanders won't start enough games to be a real fantasy factor this year with Kerry Robinson around. If he's not the opening day starter, he will be... Sanders doesn't have the legs that he used to. Lawton isn't a great choice either. I think you could pick up guys on the free agent market or waiver wire who will help you more than these guys.

Otherwise I think you're ok... you may want to think about trading a starter for a closer... the fact that you count holds instead of WHIP throws me off a bit, but I think another closer will be more help to you than a fifth starter. Russ Ortiz is probably good trade bait but if you can trade Meche for Herges, Chad Cordero Damaso Marte (most underrated reliever in MLB), or other guys who won't necessarily get all the save chances, but are likely to get at least some and are possibilities to end the season as their teams' closers, I'd trade Meche instead.

Good luck.

Matt Lawton? I didn't even know that guy was still around! There has to be someone else for that job available. You need to find at least 1 more closer.
