Neris/Benoit

Been watching Neris and took him in two leagues. He has looked very solid.

Very unhappy to read that they were promoting Benoit over Neris. Happy for Benoit and his family, and he is decent, but why didn't Neris get the gig?

I read one blurb alleging that they did not want to promote Neris for "contractual reasons." Anyone know what might be in Neris' contract?

Any reason Neris is NOT a hold at this point (in a redraft league), and should be outright dropped for someone who might actually get saves in 2017?

Any chance the Phillies come to their senses and put Neris in the closer role, or are they going to go through every other possibility in their system before considering Neris because of "contractual reasons?"

I'd hold Neris until Benoit makes a few clean saves, then drop Neris for another potential closer

Now is it Neris? I really figured Philly would try to build up Benoit's value and try and flip him at the deadline.

Is Benoit droppable?

Neris recorded another save today...Benoit should be dropped, right?
