Bench: Jurickson Profar

SP: King Felix, Johnny Cueto, Yovani Gallardo, Ian Kennedy, Roy Halladay, Mike Minor, Derek Holland, Jose Fernandez

Gardner over Marte and I'd keep a close eye on Bundy.

Is it worth keeping Kenley Jansen and/or Brandon League? I feel like Jansen is this years Aroldis Chapman to some degree. As a Mariner fan, I know what Brandon League is all about and I feel Jansen can be a dominate closer with lots of KO's once League falters.

If I should drop one of those guys, who should I add? Also looking to add a hitter and dropping Starling Marte. Any help is much appreciated. Cheers! ;-D

It's tough. In a league of this size, I like to have a 3 closers if I can. And I don't like to have a closer-in-waiting on my bench. While I think that Jansen is special, I would consider dropping him. I'm not sure you'd be able to move him in a trade. If League loses the job, pick up the next available closer off of the WW. Looking at your roster, I'd look at upgrading at 1B if you could and adding Markakis.

Help with mine?
