I'm dead last in pitching thanks to the combined efforts of Lincecum, Josh Johnson, Gallardo, Latos and most recently Colby Lewis. I also just lost Mo Rivera, so it's been a good couple weeks. My only current "closers", and I use the term loosely, are Scott Downs and Steve Cishek. Another team is in need of hitting, has great pitching and a bunch of closers. Seems like a perfect match.
10 Team 5x5 (OBP instead of AVG) Roto Dynasty league with 25 man rosters, 15 man minor league roster. We play the basic 9 positions on offense, except 1 CF, 2 OF instead of 3 OF. The best closer-in-waiting that's available is probably Bryan Shaw or Aaron Crow.
On offense, I've got BJ Upton, Swisher and Rickie Weeks (I also own Kipnis) as assets to trade. Upton is my second CF behind Kemp; he may be a luxury I can't afford, but I'd have no CF if Kemp gets hurt. I could also maybe kick in someone like Gallardo to help as well. My well-performing pitchers are James Shields and Cole Hamels.
- Putz (with D.Hernandez handcuff)
- H. Rodriguez
What kind of deal should I look for here? Is Sabathia+Robertson out of the question? I think ideally I'd be trading Swisher and Weeks in any deal.
