Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I have four closers, Jansen, Farquhar, Balfour, and brothers(maybe his time is done, haven't heard any official word). Here is the dilemma, Do i drop brothers since I have three others, and hope that betancourt is healthy enough to regain the job, then grab Alex Wood( yes he is still available/or Perez from Tex). I would obviously keep an eye on brothers. My SP otherwise is Kershaw, Greinke, Cobb, Archer, Beachy, Teheran, Strasburg, and shelby miller. Thanks for your thoughts.
I would drop Kershaw. As "good" as his season has been, his season ERA doesn't even rank in the top 100 all time. No-namers like Pedro Martinez, Greg Maddux, Sandy Koufax, and Bob Gibson have had better single season ERAs, and they are probably available in most leagues.
Drop Brothers. Get Wood.
You don't need 4 closers.
I would look to package Miller and Greinke for Scherzer and another arm. I would hope that your trade partner doesn't realize that Miller will be shut down. And getting Greinke off your roster is always a smart move.
