The Dreaded "P" Slot

Sounds dirty doesn't it? So my leagues all drafted and all that good stuff, and I wondering about how best to use the generic "P" slot. It's a 6x6 league with losses being the extra stat on the pitchers side. 4 SP, 2 RP, 1 P, 2 Bench (which I only use on pitching). My starters are Felix, Ubaldo, Hamels, Slowey, Liriano, Cueto, and Carlos Zambrano. My closers are Qualls and Frank Francisco. Now, do I stay put with what I got, or do I drop Cueto (or Zambrano) and pick up another closer off the FA list (Capps is on there, as is Madson, and whoever will close for Toronto and Minnesota, right now I'm leaning Capps)? Is it strategically wise to have three closers and give yourself the edge in saves, or keep a full stock of starters and rack up the wins and K's? I wanna pull the trigger and get Capps, but don't really know if this is the right move. 3 other teams (10 team league) are using the 3 closer strategy at the moment.

Thanks for the help!

Be good to have three closers, but unless you have bench hitters you're not telling about, I don't see anyone to drop.
