H2H, 12 team league.

I've got a pretty good team that has me currently in 2nd. I've been faltering a little recently. Where can I make changes to get a little more offense? My pitching is pretty solid. I just recently traded Cliff Floyd to get Helton, so Helton hasn't been part of the offense.

C V. Martínez
1B T. Helton
2B C. Barmes
3B R. Freel
SS M. Young
OF M. Ramírez
OF C. Lee
OF T. Hunter
Util K. Griffey Jr.
BN T. Hafner
BN R. Sanders
DL S. Rolen

SP D. Willis
SP J. Vázquez
RP K. Foulke
RP M. Batista
P D. Turnbow
P B. Myers
P B. Webb
BN D. Davis
BN C. Young
BN J. Marquis

Post your team, I'll give my input.

Well rounded team. I can see why you're in the top 2, and the Floyd/Helton deal was pure genious.

Only worry? I don't trust your closers.

I give you a A- ;-D

I worry about Barmes, Freel, and your closers (I have Foulke, too, and I hate him...). I would try to sell high on Barmes, maybe keep Freel for his steals--oh, I just saw Rolen on your bench--that'll be nice when he comes back. Yeah, keep Freel, try to sell high on Barmes. Also, watch VMart...I also have him and I'm hoping his recent surge is a sign of better things to come, but if he doesn't improve in the next couple weeks, you'll need a catcher too, I think...pretty solid OF. You need at least one more solid closer than you have. Your SP is also a little suspect in that you have a lot of untested guys - Myers, Willis, Vazquez, and Young are all doing great, but I worry about having that many potentially unreliable guys in the long run. Selling high on Myers may be an idea. Other than that, thanks for posting on mine...

Mauer or VMart?

Thanks for the help fellas...just found out Mauer is on the FA wire. Should I pull a swap out for him? Who should I drop?
