Agree with DABEAR here. RP is clearly a weakness as Izzy has been awful and pulled from the closer role now. 44-45-55...Smoltz's saves from 2002-2004. He comes back as a closer you'll be just fine in that department. This may be nit picky, but see if you could move Soto to an impatient VMart owner, as I think Vmart has a lot of making up to do . Soto's BABIP is above .400 and seem very unsustainable. 3B and SS are a couple "holes" and I may try to upgrade there, if possible.

Thing is though, I really feel Izzy will be back soon, and dropping him would be unqwise. I think he'll put up another 30+ saves before the year's over. He's just taknig a week or 2 off to reorganize himself.

But I've been trying to package Hafner and Morneau for a first round pick, and maybe make room to pick up Betancourt for some cheap saves.

Who do I drop when Kendrick returns?

Gomez?

And what about Smoltz??

I'm not sure there's anyone I can afford to drop.

I think your pitching will be fine, Smoltz will cover you for saves even if Izzy doesn't come back effectively.

If you wanted to try a serious upgrade at SS, you could look at packaging Soto and Renteria to another owner - but that really depends on how high you are on Soto for the remainder of the season. Is Jeff Clement on waivers in your league? He should hopefully have C eligibility soon.

I'm VERY high on Soto. I've monitored his Minor league progress since last year, and I made sure to draft him in nearly all my leagues. He's not moving. I'd go far as to say he;s a man crush. ;)

I offered someone renteria and hafner for Rollins and they're seriously considering it. So we'll see what happens.
