You can't afford to give up a starter in fact you sort of need one. How many RP spots are there in your league (your signature makes it appear that there are 5). Is it h2h or rotisserie? How many teams? Does Sandoval have C/1b/3b eligibility?

12 team yahoo h2h
2 SP
2 RP
4 P

i'm really looking to package sandoval along with one of my lower tier (/crappy) closers and maybe laporta as a sweetener.

Alright your offer progression should look like this then:

1st: Sandoval, Frankllin for Lester
2nd: Sandoval, Franklin, LaPorta for Lester

if he doesn't want LaPorta (which he probably won't) then...

3rd: Sandoval, Broxton
4th: Sandoval, Lidge



If Lester's who you want then I'd proceed like that. Closers are good for one thing- trading. Having big name closers is like putting rims on a Dodge Neon.

The guy I would target in a trade is Kevin Slowey. He's getting really unlucky right now and I trust his metrics. You might be able to go Sandoval and one of your bad closers for a guy like that and you'd be a big winner. I'd also take a look at going straight up for Nolasco (closer for him) who, other than Slowey, has gotten about as ripped off as you can statistically and will be huge. Don't miss out on an opportunity to buy him super cheap.
