    Ok peeps, here it is....
    I play in a 12t h2h 6x6 league (no offensive k's, but yes OPS)
    Here are my closers: Soria Grilli(DL) Lindstrom and Hector Rendon
    My offense is loaded with good players, but most are having brutal starts to begin the year, yes I know its May2, but my theory goes like this....Soria IS my only true closer, one closer isn't gonna win me saves....grilli "may" not even get his closer gig back when he gets healthy, Lindstrom is not the answer on the southside of Chicago, and who knows how long Rendon will get the call in the 9th for the cubbies. I have Nate Jones on the DL as well, and word is he may overtake Lindstrom. My intention is to ditch saves (for now) and stack my offense from top to bottom.
    UPDATE: my other trading partner would not do Holliday, so instead he flipped me Cespedes for Soria. I recently read a piece (eric karabell) where Cespedes could be in for a big year based on some of his improvements on his approach at the plate. Yes hes injury prone, but when healthy and mashing he can help a team out in a big way! I like this trade A LOT and now I feel my offense is primed and ready. And who knows, closers are baseballs merry-go-round, maybe I snag a closer off of FA :)
    Thanks for all your advice fellas

  • im needing some pop on my team and soria is expendable because hes my only true closer (Lindstrom, Grilli-DL), which hitter would u consider in this trade and why?
    The other owner has already mentioned that he'll do the trade for either hitter
    Cespedes= 5 tool player, but will eventually get hurt again at some point
    Holliday= as consistent as they come, good BA, hr and rbi
