Among pure closers, Jason Grilli leads the way in points leagues with 89 points. The Pittsburgh closer is a perfect 11-for-11 in saves

They are one pulled hamstring (a likely possibility) from being third overall. Milwaukee is intriguing. If they ever get their pen figured out (and they are close), they could be dangerous, and easily take the division. Id really like to see Pittsburgh finish above .500, and i hope the Cubs never finish above .500 again.

1984 bitches!!!

so there.


Ender touched on this but the Cards are one pulled hamstring away from Tavares or Adams getting a starting job. Either could disappoint but that's pretty good depth. My concern with the Cards has more to do with how well Carpenter/Jay/Kozma/Freese (or whomever is starting) hits.

Luckily for you the ban hammer you wield can't go on the DL. Cuz if it could it would. :-b

Curious where you guys stand on a couple of trades:

Hamels+Romo for Pedroia

Verlander+Chapman for Cano

I like Hamels/Romo for Pedroia. If you are the one getting Pedroia of course.

I'd be giving up the 2B in both cases. Have a glut of MI and need pitching and saves.

I'd rather have Hamels/Romo side, and Verlander/Chapman. That second one isn't even close in my mind. Depends on the league too, closer values vary quite a bit from league to league. I usually prefer to get the better player in 2-for-1 deals but in this case I'd prefer an elite SP/CL combo.
