Stealth Closer.....

Steals/Saves Ain't Got No Face. Closers and speed talk. Which MRs are moving in? Which schmohawk speedster is getting steals at MI?

Stealth Closer.....

Postby Beane Disciple » Sat Aug 15, 2009 6:08 pm

I could definitely use a closer to catch up in Saves and give myself a chance to win my league. All of the closers are taken as well as most of the desireable "next in line" types (think- Madson, Lindstrom, CJ Wilson, etc.) Anybody heard anything about guys who are most likely to be replaced? I've got the room right now to roster a guy who's somewhat likely to get some saves. Names anyone?

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.

Not available... I need to dig for someone who's not getting any Saves whatsoever right now (is a set-up guy) b/c all Closers are taken as are most of the set-up guys most likely to get shots at closing games. Heath Bell was put on Waivers by the Padres so I picked up Mike Adams in case Bell gets claimed and they're able to work out a deal.

I'm feeling Kevin Gregg is about to lose his job, but the next guys in line aren't very enticing. If you are desperate you could take a flier on Marmol or Guzman.

i'm thinking along yr lines, one guy i wonder about... billy wagner? i mean i'd take some action on k-rod's arm falling off in a freak accident of some kind, but how about some team that needs a closer (ahem...cubs) taking a chance on the guy? he's supposed to be activated this week (yes..before beltran, reyes, and delgado). if he shows he can actually pitch, i wouldnt be surprised to see the mets give him up for a prospect or two. (he's also a free agent and will no doubt be motivated)

Cubs web site reporting Marmol being given the closer job. Finally I can drop the Kevin Gregg crapfest.
