Keeper league or one-timer?

For this year alone, I'm scared by your 2B and SS combo. Too much injury history at 2B, and not enough upside at SS for my tastes. I like your OF a lot, although you might be a little too deep in the OF. I'm not sold on Rasmus personally. I don't love your pitching staff top to bottom. No problems with Doc and Shields, but after that it gets dicey. Hellickson could be a #3, but more likely a 4 or 5. Edwin is never going to be special, and Wandy and Niese are going to be limited by their teams. And you effectively have no closers. Bard is going to be a starter, and Francisco will be the lowest rated full time closer - if he makes it through the season.

Bump, will help anyone that helps me. I know my MI is weak and I'd really like to have MCab as my 3B once he is eligible if I can deal Beltre to help in other areas. Also, I am thinking about dropping Bard and picking up a solid set up man that can help out in K's, ERA, etc. until I can find some closers on the WW once the season starts. Any ideas on who I should target? S.Romo, D.Hernandez, etc.?

I really like this team a lot, your outfield is strong, but that could be because it's a shallow league, only 3 OF spots? But still, Gordon, Boun , Bruce and Crawford are three guys I like a lot...I also love Beltre and Weeks in the infield...your pitching isn't great, I only really love Halladay, but I could see pitching available on FAs all year long.

He's probably taken, but if you can grab Kenley Jansen off the WW, you'll be glad. Plus he might turn into the closer at some point, which should increase his value.

You could also consider Tyler Clippard, Sergio Romo, Nate Robertson, Vinnie Pestano, Addison Reed for a non-closer RP. I'd even think about picking up 2 and dropping either Jackson or Niese.
