So i had i never really had a great closer had qualls and lindstrom at the beginning of season, traded qualls very early in the season and then matt lindstrom got hurt so now i have C.J. Wilson picking up scraps here and there and Meyers only wanting to pitch the first 2/3rds of the ninth inning and then letting Nunez clean up for the save. I am in a 20 team league(rottiserie) so its impossible to pick anyone up. But i am leading in runs, HR's, AVG, and those categories. Horrible in saves and steals so i really need to find a way to trade for a decent closer. Any ideas??????? I am second in my league right now so i can afford to wait but am looking to really make a move now on someone who is going to have a great second half.

Well, it's really hard to predict who's going to get a lot of saves. I mean, no one could've predicted the amount Aardsma got last month. So you can trade a lesser piece (McGehee, for instance) for someone like Frank Francisco, to sure up Texas's saves. Or you can trade someone bigger, say Hawpe for someone like Cordero.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Thanks, i like the Mcgehee for Francisco and i am looking to see if i can get Podsednik at discount too, my friend has both these guys but is hurting on infielders(DL). Hopefully i can play hardball with him. Thanks again.
