Brandon League - R - Mariners
The Mariners have removed Brandon League from the closer role.
"We’ll match up with what we think works," manager Eric Wedge said. ''It’s not ideal, but this is where we’re at. We’re not going to name another closer.'' No current reliever on the Mariners' staff has a save this season other than League, but setup man Tom Wilhelmsen figures to be the early favorite for ninth-inning opportunities. Shawn Kelley, Charlie Furbush, and Steve Delabar could all also get a look in certain situations.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

My league's resident sorcerer grabbed Wilhelmsen before I had the chance. So I am pulling for Furbush

Grey, I swear I'm not trying to start an argument. I love you site and value your insights very much. But if you think League is getting the job back, why post on the main page that "paying" for him doesn't...pay.

The point is that there's no need to pay for saves since it's one of the most easily added stats from the FA pool over the course of the season. It's not a hard concept. If you've got a quick trigger finger, you could have accumulated saves from:

Jansen, HanK-Rod, Lidge, Dolis, Downs, Freiri, Cishek, Cordero, Janssen, Aceves, Balfour, Fuentes, Santiago, Reed, Strop, Cruz, and now Wilhelmsen (probably). And that's just off of the top of my head.

Meanwhile people that paid for Rivera, Storen, Bell, Marmol, Walden, and Bailey could have used those early-mid round picks on someone like Gio Gonzales, Jordan Zimmermann, or Carlos Beltran.

It's a lot harder to add 20/20 or 15W/175K from the WW than it is to mix and match for 125 saves on the year.

Get it?

Piss off, Mark. The question is for Grey.
