There is no need for that many closers, There has got to be someone with very weak closers that you could trade with.

In Yahoo I have 4 closers: Percival, Rhodes, Nathan, Graves. Graves qualifies as a starter, so I stick him there every game, since I rarely have 3 starters going the same night. And Nathan fills my extra pitcher spot.
All my posts regard H2H (yahoo), I don't play Roto.

ride them out for a little while, get a jump on the saves lead, then deal them to other people jockeying for position who aren't going to catch you =D

dude, that's not a bad situation your in. Plan on trading them in package deals to the guys low in saves later in the season when they get really desperate. Be in control and don't trade them until they get like 20 saves each just so their values rise.

Closers are perfect for 2 for 1 deals where you can get a better SP or hitter. Somebody almost always needs a closer.

It depends on your league size. If it's standard(10-12 team) I'd hold on to them like sin said and watch their value rise then deal. If it's a small league (8 or less) I'd tried to package one or two of them now to upgrade a weak spot. You should be able to pick up a closer or two off the wire during the season.

Try to trade one of the lower tier guys for graves or chacon, both of whom qualify as an SP, so you can sneek an extra closer in your lineup.
