I think that possibly nathan, chapman, & crow will be closers soon.. but it's dependent on outside circumstances. rauch has bascially been announced as the closer for now. if you're looking for saves take rauch. melancon gets no opportunities. I have bastardo and think i'm going to swap nathan or crow...

Howie Kendrick and Travis Snider are rosterable. I'd probably pick up Snider immediately. It seems you have a free bench spot on your offense.

Also, I would drop Bastardo for Chapman, Guerra, or Crow. I know some people think Bastardo has pitched well enough to keep the closer's job, but Madson is the present and the future for the Phils in that role, so he's getting it as soon as he's up to speed (which will be almost immediately).

I'd also like to know who is available at SP in your league, since you have Andrew Miller sitting there. Yuck.

I would drop Bastardo for Dunn, ASAP.

Sorry, eff the first half numbers. Adam DUnn has been one of the most consistent power hitters in all of baseball the past 5 years. He is due for a MONSTER, like, historically monster half number II. While Bastardo has more value to me than most, I could not justify to myself letting such a slugger sit.

Please help with mine.
