Miguel Montero, Eric Hosmer, Dustin Pedroia, Kevin Youkilis, Troy Tulowitzki, Jose Reyes, Michael Cuddyer, Jacoby Ellsbury, Andrew McCutcheon, Michael Bourn, Emilio Bonifacio, Desmond Jennings, Adam Lind, Buster Posey, Alex Gordon

But more importantly, here is my question and my pitchers: Should I drop one of my starters to pick up Heath Bell out of FA?

Clayton Kershaw
Cole Hamels
Matt Cain
Yovani Gallardo
James Shields
Stephen Strasburg
Madison Bumgarner
Brandon Beachy
Anibal Sanchez
Jason Motte

montero- no need for 2 catchers
bonifacio- his major usage is SB and you already have bourn, ellsbury,reyes, mccutch and jennings
lind-no need for him

i would pick up 2 closers and maybe another SP.

Drop both Lind and Sanchez for closers if there's decent guys on the wire. (Why Bell is on the wire I have no idea, but that wasn't the question :-b )
