Detroit's Closer

Postby diggs1228 » Sat Mar 30, 2013 4:09 pm

I'm leaning towards Benoit maintaining the role, but am not confident Leyland won't mix and match with Coke and Dotel. While Albequerque got called back up, he's seemingly lower in the pecking order. Any opinion on this specific to who to pick up? Right now I've got Benoit and Coke but could sure use one of those spots.

No clue but I am hoping Al Al gets it.

Dan dickerson likes Benoit too so it ain't just me. However, every fantasy pert wants al albequerque for his fun to watch performances... And a sick k rate. Leyland doesn't play fantasy baseball.

Dark Horse: Brayan Villareal. Do you think his parents just didn't know how to spell Brian?

They took naming suggestions from Jhonny Peralta's parents.

Loved seeing him visit Yankee stadium. There was a guy that sat behind the visitor's clubhouse who would heckle him like mad by accentuating the H.

"Hey Ju-Honny. How's it goin, Ju-Honny?"

It's not just fantasy but saber people too who think Al should make a better closer than either, so I'd watch the situation. You're holding the guys I would for now though.

Basketball: 19 team roto keeper; weekly locks; start 10 util.

John Wall
Kawhi Leonard
Marc Gasol
Dwayne Wade
Bradley Beal
Danny Green
Ed Davis
Anthony Morrow
Matt Barnes
Kevin Garnett
Boris Diaw
Rasual Butler
Danny Granger

Sooner or later, if AL Al has 2-4 good weeks and maintains this sick 13.5 k/9, in addition to some "exciting" 9th in mix and matches, he's gonna get a look.
