I've noticed that there tends to be a widespread belief that closers are overrated, and I can definitely understand this way of thinking seeing as closers for teams can change over the course of the season. However I picked up Nolasco early in the year based on the assumption that he would have a rebound year and thus far he seems to have shown no signs of this at all. After reading one of the other posts on here about his struggles I am even more apt to let him go. In addition, I need help in saves, as I have Heath Bell and Rafael Soriano holding that position down right now by themselves and I typically find that having 3-4 closers is sufficient in a single season format to stay competitive in that category. I had Trevor Hoffman earlier in the year but I think most of us know how his season is going so far...
Anyways, here's the current team:
C: Victor Martinez, 1B: Troy Glaus, 2B: Aaron Hill, 3B: Evan Longoria, SS: Elvis Andrus, OF: Nick Swisher, Ichiro Suzuki, Carlos Gonzalez, Util: Vladimir Guerrero, Bench: Michael Cuddyer, DL: Kendry Morales
Heath Bell, Rafael Soriano, Manuel Corpas
So, what do you all think? Any help you guys can give would be greatly appreciated.
