    Time to switch closers?

    On my team I have RP Keith Foulke, RP Eddie Guardado and RP Jose Jimenez. I am totally confident with Foulke and Guardado, but am scared of Jimenez. Should I dump him and pick up McDougall for KC or pick up another starter (Radke is available).

    My current pitching staff is:

    SP1: Randy Johnson
    SP2: Mark Prior
    SP3: Jason Schmidt
    SP4: Javier Vazquez
    SP5: Ramon Ortiz
    SP6: Ted Lilly
    SP7: Kris Benson

    RP1: Eddie Guardado
    RP2: Keith Foulke
    RP3: Jose Jimenez

    In my head to head league, 5 teams have 3 closers (including mine) and 2 teams have 2 closers, 2 teams have 1 closer, and 1 team has 4 closers. I have tried to offer Jimenez to the teams that have 1 closer and both have said that they are not interested in him for ANYONE on their team. What I'm worried about is if I drop him and one of the teams that have 3 closers picks him up, that will be another team that has 4 closers, and I will then have 2 (unless I pick up McDougall). At the same time, putting Jimenez in an active position is like playing Russian Roulette with my ERA and WHIP categories. I planned to only put him in the active roster when he is playing in a pitchers park and sitting him at home games and games at Minute Maid.

    What should I do?
