I'd say you mainly need patience, but another closer, a catcher and possibly a speedster wouldn't hurt either. :-)

I agree you need another closer, just in case. I'd want another high HR, high RBI outfielder since I see plenty of speed (but maybe Arlo is right and I'm wrong).

I agree with the consensus - Another closer

Florida is supposed to be really aggressive on the basepaths, so hopefully you'll still see some more surprise steals from Pudge (I have him too so I hope this happens).

As a Yankee fan, I have seen Matsui play. As a rotisserie GM, I have yet to see Matsui have a bad AB. He rarely swings at bad pitches - he has great discipline. Mondesi is another surprise - you should see improvements in his steals and BA. He's already got a few HR as you well know.

I would be tempted to "sell high" with Runlevys Hernandez. He can't possibly keep up this pace, and two of his wins are against Cleveland. I say hold tight if you don't get someone good - looks like he'll pitch against Minnesota, Toronto, and 2 against Baltimore, so his value will continue to go up a bit. You could even use those upcoming four starts to add to his short-term trade value.

Maybe you can get a good-to-better closer for him.

Good luck.

I agree with trading Hernandez, his value is pretty high right now, and I can't see his performance continuing. Get a closer for him.
I'd look at other options instead of F Thomas.
Maybe look for Nady or Catalanotto, they're available in many leagues and will give you a better bench and more consistent production from your utility position.
