Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
...are universally worthless.
However...they are necessary.
That being said...I neglected to add/draft reasonable closers.
I drafted LaTroy Hawkins.
I scavenged Chad Qualls from the free agent pool.
I like having 3 closers and someone just dropped Bobby Parnell for Brandon Beachy in my league.
Who should I drop to add Bobby Parnell?
Yuck. I'm not saying be one of the first teams to grab a closer but that is pretty bleak. I'm keeping Venable as he has the best chance to help you this year. And then probably Garcia he's been projected in the 5 hole on the heavy side of changing because of splits. An gets to hit at the Cell. I like Yelich long term, but the Marlins lineup and park are both to scary for me. And keep a close eye on Jesse Crain through spring not totally sure that is Qualls job.

I always watch the closer spring battles.
Managers also often change the guy in the closer role through May. There are plenty of opportunities to upgrade at closer. I never like drafting closers but I usually get 2-3 in the draft. I only got one this year and I am fine with that. I will have 3 closers before the season starts. In my opinion all closers are the same.
