what is the situation with these 2 in the angels bullpen? - with k-rod closing, which one is the setup guy and which one would be next in line to close (not that i think frankie will falter)...and who is better for ratios?

shields does long reilief and emergency starts. count on 90-110 IP. BD is the setup guy and has better ratios, but less IP to make them effective (60-80)

With Percival gone and K-Rod closing this will put Donnelly in the primary setup position. Shields is more of a long reliever and reserve starter. While Scott will get a few holds, Donnelly will be one of the top setup men in that category.

Donnelly is complete stud for a MR in terms of Ks and ratios. I'd grab ove anyone in the Angel's pen aside from KRod.

Donnelly is another guy who is on all 4 of my teams....
...for a reason.
I was able to get him after a lot of last year's top "holds" guys went. Even after Shields (which cracks me up).

Shields is long relief and wants to start. He is one of the first ones in line if a spot opens up in the rotation. He will give you a few wins and good ratios.

Donnelly is very studly in MR. Seems to be back from the broken nose ok. He is the primary set up man but the Angels do like him in that role and I am not positive that they would make him the closer if K-Rod went down. I could be way wrong but they might give Yan a shot since he has been a closer before.

Then why don't you want him? Everyone knows he's a stud MR, but people say he's a mistake to be on my team, you won't take him in a trade, etc.
I'm back. Sorta.

if you are in a league that counts K's, Shields is your man. He is a stud releiver in the K dept. and can get you the occassional win and save. He is a solid arm and very relaiable with no real injury history. Guy has a rubber arm.....

That's a completely wrong statement. Donnelly has had a higher K rate than Shields last year and every year, by a pretty large margin. He is better across the board--far better ratios, more Ks and a better chance to vulture saves and wins.
