I'd go with
Rafael Soriano (top 10 closer what is not to like you have no others and he's definitely a solid option).
Kyle Seager (very underrated - was a road beast last year, like his power chances with the field moved in and a better lineup around him)....nice sleeper good second utility bat for you.
Josh Johnson (I think he will do better than people give him credit for -- seriously the AL East is not quite as dominant as it has been in years past - good players have moved past their primes or just flat out don't play anymore - Gotta love him pitching for a winning looking team - worthwhile risk behind your other arms - in a deeper league top shelf SP will be harder to come by)
-----------------------------------
Missing the cut and why:
Axford - you can pretty well throw back...could be a draft day bargain in the later rounds as a cheap closer with some bounce back potential.
Fowler - is a bit overrated in my book (focus on OF in draft)
Alex Avila - catcher is a deeper position than it has been in the past throw Avila back and get one with more consistency or upside in the draft as a bargain (guys like Sal Perez or Tyler Flowers come to mind) or a steady vet (like a Napoli or AJP)
Sergio Romo - got by with legal issues but I'm concerned about his role, some risk here, you already have one good closer and I'd probably take a chance in the draft and draft a more secure #2 closer.

I am right there with you MadDog; those are my first instinct choices.

I think my hopes for Fowler, my need for OF, and who he actually is.....is making me think I should hold onto him instead of Soriano....I hate the closer carousel that is sure to happen again this year


thanks

I would take the 3 closers.
Seager could be had in the draft.
JJ i'm not liking that much.

To me Soriano is the only sure fire closer he even has. Romo has some potential but with a deep roster I'd take the bat. ;-D

Soriano, Seager and Josh Johnson for me, and then attack OF early and often in your draft.

Axford had over 12 K/9 last year. A flukey 19% hr/fb ratio killed him.
Romo has a career whip of .88.
I actually prefer both to Soriano.
JJ might do ok, but i don't trust him.
His numbers have trended down some, and now he pitches in a hr park, and faces a DH.
I guess we will have to wait and see.
I like Seager, but he could be had in draft. He''s already keeping suspect guys like Rutledge.
I take the 3 closers.

I don't disagree with you HOOTIE, but in our league those closers will be available in the draft. No one in our league keeps more than 1 closer, if any, so there will be plenty of options....which is why I dont really want to keep 1.

I think Seager, Fowler, and JJ would go in the first round (16th) of our draft. I have last pick because I won last year, and we do not snake the draft.

I like Romo more than Ax and Sori, but who knows....

thats why getting all your input....I still am no where near certain; maybe pair Seager and closer for a keeper OF? I like trading.


thanks for all the help, keep it coming

At MDC

Axford 124 5th closer
Romo 147 9th closer
Soriano 152 11th closer

Seager 132
JJ 149
Fowler 212
Rutlegde 241

You better draft closers then, because in a 12 team league, you want 3 closers.
