Bartlett and Chris Perez for Bruce and Everth Cabrera.
I don't completely buy Bartlett and I have a mancrush on Bruce... what do you think?

I'd take Bruce.

Yeah, me too.

Perez seems like a good sell high guy in leagues where saves aren't easy to replace. Wood has a contract in his clause based on finishing 55 games this year. Yeah, that isn't going to happen. Nevertheless, if the Indians do not immediately make him the closer upon activation off the DL the player's union is going to go jihad. I still expect Wood to end up with more saves than Perez this year.

I dropped Wood because Berkman is taking up my DL slot. I figure the Indians will trade Wood a the deadline so Perez would have a shot at a pretty good season. My big consideration is that my shortstop situation is pretty terrible. That said, I don't believe in Bartlett's average or power from last year and I think last year will be his career year. I hate to sell low on Bruce because if he breaks out he could be a top 10 outfielder for the future (this is a keeper league).
By the way, I know you've been touting Ian Desmond. I like him as a sleeper too but he looked pretty terrible today. Even his walk was just 4 straight pitches that were nowhere near the plate. Roy Halliday makes a lot of people look silly but his fielding was gross too. If he has too many days like today I could see him back in AAA and Guzman (ugh) starting at short for the worst team in baseball.
