Tough choice on Closers!

Postby armitage » Sun May 04, 2003 8:16 am

I have Biddle, Looper, MacDougal and Williamson as my closers. Now Borowski is still on FA.

Should I drop MacDougal (imploded) or Williamson (soon to be traded?) for Borowski ? or Should I drop Konerko for him? I have Ibanez and Huff as my 1st basemen now.

thanks for you help.

try to trade macdougal. he should have enough value to get you something, i'd think.

biddle is a very mediocre pitcher, and scott stewart has been lights-out this year. i'd be surprised if biddle is still closing by the all star break.
Good luck!

Whatever you do don't drop Williamson, if he gets traded he will most likely still close.

Drop Ibanez or Huff for him. Perferably Huff.

Don't drop MacDougal, that'd be insane, he blew two saves b/c of errors, and plus he saved his first 10 straight. I would not drop him anytime soon. Drop Biddle or Konerko, Biddle is mediocre and if you already have Ibanez and Huff at 1B, than Konerko is really just taking up space, isn't he? But, Huff will be RF eligible soon, so that may change your mind if your OF is weak. He was almost 3B eligible, but damn Damian Easley had to come on....

I would trade MacDougal before he loses any more value because if you actually watch him pitch, his control is beyond erratic and his being able to get 10 saves so far is basically due to luck rather than exceptional pitching. There is no way he's the next Eric Gagne. If you can get someone to give you a struggling closer that should pick it up later like Koch, Benitez or Jimenez for MacDougal, jump on it. But don't drop him when people will probably give you something for him.
