U'll be fine at closer. just wait for another one to come along for insurance.

Very very nice squad for a 12 teamer. If anything im concerned about your power. If teix comes thru i think u'll be ok thou.
Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

Solid team. I like your pitching alot. My suggestion, try to shop Gordon and Maine to get a good closer. Since this is a keeper league, someone will want Gordon for sure.


Are you sure you want to keep Liriano? Who knows how he'll do when he is back. Maybe trade him for a RP?!?

thanks for the help....

I like your team a lot, I definitely wouldnt call barfield a gaping hole. the only improvements i would suggest would be to try and upgrade from teahen at your util spot and maybe get some more sp depth. other than that looks good

Don't drop Barfield- he's better than K Matsui and Giles.

A move I would make is to add M Capps to back up your S Torres.
J Tracy has really been talking up Capps lately and a closer change could come soon is Torres continues to struggle.

Your team looks fine. I agree, bench Teahen for Jacobs, keep Barfield.

thanks for your help w/ mine...

Def keep Barfield, if you're that down on him, don't outright drop him, try to package him with a closer for an upgrade. Otherwise, your team is solid all around.

Looking at that team, it seems like a case where the right closer move might happen by attrition. As in, you'll get a lead in other categories, other teams will fall behind in particular categories, and teams will start to be forced to deal to catch up. I'd stand pat on RPs, watch the waiver wire and just keep trying to bait a top-tier RP for someone solid but certainly not unreplaceable via free agency. Teahen, maybe.

As for Barfield, by the way, I'm a big fan and think he's going to be much better than people expect. I'll grant I'm somewhat biased, but I think the Padres made a mistake in getting rid of him. (In other words, I definitely wouldn't drop Barfield for KazMat and there's not enough words to say how strongly I'd argue against dropping him for Giles.)

Thank you to everyone who responded. I have made several moves and will now post an updated roster:
C - Piazza
1B - Garciaparra (until Teix heats up)
2B - Weeks
3B - MCab
SS - Jeter
OF - Sizemore
OF - Bay
OF - Rios
Util - Duffy
B - Teahen
B - Gordon
B - Teixeira (until he heats up)
DL - Figgins

SP - Santana, Peavy, Hill, Haren, Gorz, Maine
RP - Valverde, Torres, Otsuka

I traded Kazmir for Weeks, a deal which I am very very pleased with as I have plenty of SPs, all whom are great. I also decided to stay put on RPs, though I dropped Barfield (due to the fact that I have Weeks, and that I needed to bench Teix and acquire a 1B in the meantime). I also added Duffy and dropped Greinke (sorry fanclub).


Thanks again, I'll get around to all responses in time.
