Which is a better keeper for next year?

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Which is a better keeper for next year?

Postby poty » Fri Aug 13, 2010 11:42 pm

Who do you think will be more valuable as a closer next year?

Drew Storen at 3 dollars or Jonny Venters at 3 dollars?

I already own Storen but I'm tempted to drop Josh Tomlin and add Venters so I can have two closers going into next year for super cheap.

What would you do?

Agreed. Venters is as close to being the confirmed closer for next year as it gets without actually coming in and getting that first save.

Thanks for the advice guys. Do you think I should drop Storen to pick up Venters or hold them both?

I wouldn't drop Storen for Venters.

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.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!
