Post Auction Draft Questions and Concerns

Hey there, I'm in a 10 Team H2H Auction Keeper League. 9x9 (AVG, HR, R, RBI, SB, OBP, TB, 1B, 2B / ERA, K, WHIP, W, SV, HD, IP, BAA, K/9) 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, LF, CF, RF, UTIL, UTIL.
I think I drafted a pretty decent team overall, as my hitting and bench seem pretty deep, but my pitching staff is somewhat thin, and my closers are non-existent. Closers were going for too much money, and I took some extra hitting bench players, and before I knew it, the closers were gone, and I was out of bench spots.
Should I look to make some aggressive trades to help out the pitching rotation and closers? Or just look to pick up pitchers who get Holds on the waiver wire?

Your staff doesn't look bad... You just have some risky guys. If they pan out, you'll be fine. You won't know if they're gonna pan out until the season is underway so don't panic... Your hitting looks okay, low on OBP and I'm not sure why you have so many bench bats

Thanks for the reply. I certainly got carried away with the bats in the auction. I wasn't paying attention to how many bench spots I had left.
Should I try trading some of those bats away?
