Picking The Right Golf Ball

Wed 8/4

I've made a couple of roster moves. Nothing huge, but something to help me in the batting category. Gutierrez is on the DL, so I picked up the next D-back that is supposedly in line for saves - Aaron Heilman. I briefly had KC's Jason Kendall to fill in for Mauer, but that didn't last long. Joe Mauer is one of my top producers in AVG and RBIs, and now he seems to be better so I sent Kendall packing. Picked up the Rockies' Todd Helton who will play at the 1B/3B slot for the foreseeable future. Zimmerman was moved to 3B, replacing Troy Glaus who has been horrendous and will now spend some quality time on the bench. Finally, I sent the half-productive Giambi packing in favor of Raul Ibanez. Ibanez is a fairly good pick-up; but where to play him?
Over the past 30 days, Crisp has the lowest batting average among my OFs; however there is no way I'm leaving his base-stealing ability on the bench. Torres and Hunter are staying in which leaves Drew, Kubel, and Jones. It'll be Drew that sits for a while.
On the pitching front, I've continued sticking with Lester, Buccholz, Latos, Gallardo, and Floyd. Gregg and Simon are still solid closers, with the dreaded trade failing to happen for Gregg and Mike Gonzalez not yet truly threatening to steal saves from the latter. I'm still in search of the magical 3rd closer. Blew it with Axford; someone else has Kerry Wood's replacement; and the Arizona situation has yet to be established.
With a couple games winding down, my batters have hit .359 tonight with 5 runs scored, 1 RBI, and steals by Johnson and Hunter.

Standings: 9, 7, 4, 3, 2; 11, 12, 6, 11, 8 (5th, 73 pts)

Wed 8/18

With Johnson and Helton still finishing up their games, my boys have hit .390 tonight. 7 runs scored, 7 RBIs, stolen bases by Bartlett and Crisp, and 3 homers. Crisp, Mauer, and Torres each belted one over the fence.

Pitching was not so good. Floyd got knocked out of the park, putting in a lousy performance for the 2nd straight game. Garza has been on a semi-roll lately, so I think a switch might be appropriate.
