I dropped Snell, after todays outing, and picked up Chad Billingsley.
The only relievers available with at least 5 saves are Brian Fuentes, Ryan Franklin and Scott Downs.
Starters available are Gavin Floyd, Dana Eveland and Daniel Cabrera. Jair Jurrjens is on waivers.
I checked the trading block but no one is looking to get rid of pitching. There's not been much trade activity in our league this year.
Oh my God, how was Billingsley not owned?!? Good move, picking him up. Any of those other three have been solid as well, and even though he's been injury-prone in the past, it might be worth trying to nab Jurjjens, he's been great this year.
As for closers, your best bet on the FA wire is probably Franklin, but he might not be the closer by the end of the year (Izzy could always come back, or they could move Perez into that role.) After that, it's Fuentes, but there's always the possibility he'll be traded and moved into the set-up role. Downs has been good, but he only gets save opps when Ryan's pitched on consecutive days, so he's not the best option if you need saves.
