I think it's important to consider your categories. You can rely on that offense so let's talk pitching. Try to snag an ace that eats innings like Latos, Bailey, or Zimmerman. Keep Hamels for that purpose. Check out which 8th inning strikeout machines are FA. Doesn't matter how reliable the closer is. Anything can happen and it always does with RP. I seek out these kinds of guys every season and never draft an RP because they're a CL. This strategy works wonders.. Frieri and Chapman agreed with me in 2012. Even if they never close they will significantly boost your K/9, ERA, and WHIP. Way more value in three categories than just SV.
Soriano and Street are getting sold if that's my team. Maybe one team has a closer like Grilli who strikes em out but they overvalue SV like everyone else. Offer Street and Soriano, use the empty spot to snag one of those 8th inning guys.
If you can't slide one of those aces that go deep into games, don't reach too much for IP or QS. It's not worth scrapping any part of your offense. If you pick your match-ups well and aim to meet the minimum IP, you can sneak ERA, WHIP, and K/9 from any other staff. Giving up on two pitching categories so you are competing in the other four, and hopefully winning most offensive categories means you won't be winning by very much, but at least more often than not. That's a playoff spot in a 10-team. Having three good RP who will support those categories is crucial to the success of this strategy. My two cents.
