Okay so I've got 4 closers and want to drop one - Guerra, Balfour, Motte, and Marshall.. who should I drop? Leaning towards Balfour.

My gut tells me to drop Guerra. He's got the least job security IMO with Jansen behind him.

i would just email or call the site's support. it's going to depend by site.

Well it's not really a technical issue. I know how to change each weeks matchup, but I'm having hard time making it so that each team has an even amount of match ups with each other team.

Yeah it's between him and Balfour, I'm gonna give it a week or so and see if either of them gives me a reason to drop them. If not, I'll have to decide.

Why do you wanna drop one? They all have pretty decent job security and saves are scarce

Almost every other team in my league has just 2 closers, so there's really no need for me to have 4 when I can probably win saves just having 3. Plus, blown saves is a category, and the more closers I have the better chance I have of getting a lot of blown saves.

Nope, he's a bench guy. When this trade goes through tonight, I'll have:

Justin Upton
Carlos Beltran
Chris Young
Jason Heyward
Jon Jay
Jayson Werth
Matt Joyce
Jason Kubel

with Michael Morse and Allen Craig on the DL. So I don't usually play Kubel, unless I slot him in at DH.

Thanks. Everyone keeps telling me I'm stacked. I traded Andrew McCutchen (and David Ortiz) away (which made it LESS stacked) but got Beltran, Youkilis, and Craig Kimbrel in return, so was definitely worth it to me.

And since I lost Ortiz, looks like Kubel will see most of his time at DH on my team. So he'd better learn some goddamn plate discipline and get the fuck on base.

Any reason why you traded McCutchen ?

Because I wanted Beltran, a solid infield option (which Youk is when he's not freezing cold like right now), and Kimbrel was a bonus. Any reason why trading McCutchen was the end of the world for me? This is my team, btw.
