You have hitters with essentially no value, I agree with the others who have said to drop them. There are at least five guys I would strongly consider dropping on that list.

Pick up guys like Francisco Rodriguez, Chad Cordero, Curtis Leskanic, Matt Herges, these kind of guys.

You've got to get some saves, or you can't win. Your team is far too vulnerable in SBs, BA, and Wins. That's three categories that you would be lucky to finish in the top 3rd, added to one that you are taking a 1 on, not a good idea.

Also, if you decide to trade Bonds for two closers and a bat, make sure that at least one of the guys you get is an elite player.

Maybe something like Bonds for Brian Giles, Octavio Dotel and Jorge Julio?

In a season league, Bonds would command more, but he is 40 and it's a keeper

Hit the depth charts, find the closers for each team and verify if they are taken. Then from a player listing that ranks players, chose to sort on saves.

Personally, if F. Cordero is out there, grab him, he's sometimes overlooked. Also, you might research which team has the weakest closer and will ultimately go to ANY pitcher with saves to step in and help.

Pick up Herges or Riske or Aq. Lopez or Speier or Marte or Jimenez or Kolb or C. Cordero or any number of guys who will probably see plenty of save opportunities this year.
