id say no. Im not the biggest fan of philips and i don't believe his production will eclipse butler in a drastic way.

I would not accept this. I really like Butler this year, and think production between him and phillips could be close to equal, maybe even in butler's favor. On top of that, giving a stud closer in casilla seems like way too much.

I actually like Ackley to continue to improve as the year goes on, so I don't see a need to push for Phillips. I'd prefer to stick with Butler.

I don't like this deal for you either. Butler should continue to produce at a decent clip the rest of the way and Casilla is really running with the closer's gig. I'd stick with what you have.\

For those two I'd go after Kinsler or Uggla.

I would stay put, Casilla has done well in the closer slot and butler should continue to produce and I like both of them combine better then phillips.

I don't value closers too much in this league because it's a weekly H2H league. Also there are guys like Thayer, Capps, and Fuentes available on the FA market. Does that change opinions at all?

If your league is like mine, where a few teams have a bunch of closers such that you have an all or nothing thing going with them, then I would similarly undervalue closers and take Philips here.
