What do you guys think? Dump saves? UPDATE!

Postby ECG77 » Mon Apr 30, 2012 9:46 pm

I'm having a hard time trying to get another closer. Owners that have three closers in their line up are either not wanting trade them or asking price is way too high.

So should just boot the saves category and sell Papelbon to focus on the two other pitching categories that I badly need to move up in? Strikeouts and wins.

UPDATE: I'm being offered Hart and Furcal for Papelbon and Rollins.

How many teams? Anyone on the wire? It's much harder to win punting in roto so I would see what I can shake up within reason, be quick to the wire when news breaks, or snag up a few setup men of some closers in trouble.

They are 11 teams. Right now the best guy is a set up man. Mitchell Boggs in St. Louis. All closers and set up men are mostly taken.

If this is NL-only with 11 teams, then 1 good closer should still get you 3 or 4 points esp if you have teams stashing 3. If you had some marginal guy I would say bag the saves, but since you have one of the better ones, I would hold onto him unless someone makes you a tremendous offer.

How's this for an offer. I was just offered Corey Hart and Rafael Furcal for Papelbon and Rollins.

No. Furcal has about a 0.01% of not getting hurt and Hart is no where near as valuable a Papelbon imo.

Hmm. OK.

I've been desperately shopping for another big bat though and my guys are not producing. I'm second to lad in HRs and very close to bottom in RBIs. I have speed and runs already.
