Should I make a trade for closers????

Postby cassplaya4 » Mon Apr 30, 2012 6:27 pm

My team was auto picked and I got nothing but Andrew Bailey to get me saves. I Told the league that I need closers.

The only offer I have received thus far is Heath Bell and Grant Balfour for CJ Wilson....

What do you guys think I should do?

SP - Hanson, CJ Wilson, Sale, Harrison, Kuroda, Worley, Sanchez, Billingsley, Minor
CP - Bailey (DL), Venters, Brett Myers

Are there no closers on the WW? Broxton, anyone?

Bell is bad. I tihnk it's only a matter of time before he hits the DL.

With 10 SP's, yes, trade for closer, but temper your offers, it's a volatile position that people tend to overvalue when trading. My first suggestion of course is to scour the wire and make the appropriate moves. Definately do not take the trade that was offered to you.

Maybe try to ship off a back-end starter for a mid-tier closer. Something like Harrison or Bills for S Marshall, Marmol, Casilla type.
