Mike Adams or Affeldt?

Not only do you have Affeldt injurt concerns, apparently MacDougal is having a great spring, and could unseat him.. something to watch out for.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

I'd take Adams. Neither is an elite closer, but Adams has the job (at least for now) and has been sharp in ST. He should be dirt cheap in a draft (I picked him up yesterday in my 12-team roto draft in the 20th round or so) and put up good numbers. Affelt spends more time in the hospital than Noah Wyle and is already injured in ST. Big risk IMO.

MacD can't throw strikes though. Don't see why that is likely to change longterm.

Definately Affeldt. I don't trust Adams to keep the job, and I've only heard good things about Affledt this spring. Blisters are no longer a problem because he doesn't have a nail on the problem finger anymore.

The blister problems may be all gone, but Affeldt is one of those players who just can't get over the injury bug. I don't have much faith in either Adams or Affeldt going the entire season with the closer job intact.

A groin injury is not a good thing.

Well, I didn't hear about the groin injury. Everything up until 30 seconds ago was all good news :-b

Affedlt. He blossom in his first FULL season as a closer.

Affeldt also has the advantage of qualifying for the SP slot in Yahoo leagues. :-B He's always been highly regarded and the injuries have held him back. Adams seems to have come out of nowhere. Not that that's bad, but is there any injury history or potential for injury that has not been as public as Affeldt's?
