Baez and Looper are ok but really just one year ago were dumped by their respective teams, this isn't a very good trend
Torres was playing for a contract and got one, just a couple of years ago he was hoping to make a team out of spring training....I wouldn't count on a repeat
If you look at the teams in your league how do they compare, I have a hard time believing this is the best offens, just trying to be objective and help you out though
I agree. Baez and Looper are no sure things when it comes to closers. I haven't played in leagues with holds, so I'll trust that your MR are solid.
As for offense, without knowing the number of teams in your league, this may end up being a stupid statement - but 3 big guns and a bunch of players with limited upside doesn't seem like a good offense to me. I've been in 12 team NL or AL only salary leagues and almost always ended up with at least two guns, and usually three. So in a ML universe, and only three seems weak. It's not a bad offense, especially when compared to your starting pitchers (which is where I'd guess a lot of your salary went), but I agree that I'd look to trade some of that depth for a little more hitting.
As for where to upgrade, maybe at U or one of your older guys (Kent, Finley) who likely won't be better, and a slide (due to age) wouldn't be surprising. You also have very little speed unless Gathright gets a full-time job.
Again, not being critical as you have great SP. I would just try and even it out a little.
