Pick up Valverde immediately. Closers shouldn't be available on waivers. Drop Sosa for him.

I would hold on to Clemens for a little longer. I'd drop Liriano (assuming it's not a keeper league) before dropping Clemens right now. Liriano looks to be set to go to AAA, and with the starters you have, it wouldn't hurt you to lose out on him. Then wait Clemens out and see what goes on with him.

If you don't get Roberts, drop Feliz in favor of Hermida (if you can get him back). If you do get Roberts, drop Lane, Gomes, or Granderson (Granderson would be my choice) for Hermida. Granderson is good, but he won't help you as much as Hermida. Hermida will be hitting in front of Miguel Cabrera this year, so he'll get some pitches to hit and score a ton of runs.

Roberts can slide into 2nd base, Figgins can fill in for the OF until you decide who your best OFs are. After you get comfortable with a lineup, work on trading your extra OFs or Glaus for another closer.

Valverde would make an awesome pickup and a priority over Roberts, etc.

Valverde, Roberts, and Hermida all clear waivers on Saturday.

Right now I plan to have:

Sosa dropped for Valverde
Feliz dropped for Roberts
and plan to drop someone for Hermida after that. Hopefully!

Good moves. Valverde is really good; the D-Backs just couldn't decide who to use at closer before. If he's stays healthy he should be really good for you this season.

I would drop Liriano for Hermida if he's going to the minors. You'll end up with three extra OF, which is probably 1-2 too many. But your starters will be solid so you can take a few weeks to decide which (Lane, Hermida, and Granderson) to keep.
