Trade Deadline = New Closers?

Postby kevo252 » Wed Jul 11, 2012 7:33 am

Thinking about dropping Bell with the news that he will now be in a comittee.

Should I let him go for Gregerson or Holland in a speculation move?

I wouldn't drop him...he could just as easily win his job back...he did it earlier...depends on circumstances...but I wouldn't occupy too many roster spots for closers...

...if there was a clear-cut closer (with skill and job security) to add from the wire...but I'd wait it out for now..
...that's my take...I own Chapman, Jansen, Reed...I went after skills, youth...but I haven't "wasted" any more roster spots speculating for saves because I feel I will be able to buy saves if I need them with the value I've found and kept from the wire...or I'll be able to find saves on the wire given the injury risk and job security issues involving the closer position... your case...if you speculate on a guy like Holland and drop Bell...perhaps Holland doesn't get the job and Bell keeps his??? I'd wait

I wouldn't drop Bell, as Pulaski said, for Gregerson or Holland, unless you're able to open another roster spot to secure the potential handcuffs, Thayer and Crow.

What's up with Wilton Lopez, is he fully healthy now? Ready to move in?

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.
