what are your predictions on these 2 guys?

is closser even starting, im sure he will at some point this year but untill they move c.johnson whats the deal going to be. i have closser as my starting catcher on one of my teams and am wondering if i should grab m.barrett?

l.ayala, do u think he will close at some point or is cordero a lock?

thanks for any help.

I say Closser starts after Johnson is cut and picked up by Tampa Bay. Barrett has better overall numbers though than both. And Cordero closes ans runs with it while Ayala remains a setup man because that is where he belongs.

Take Barrett over Closser. As for Ayala, he is not a bad option if you have a roster spot if you accomodate a "potential closer" type. In the set-up role he will provide better numbers than other guys who stand a shot of getting closer action due to injury or incompetence, such as Urbina or Worrell.

I have him as a principal backup too but I don't even have Barrett as an option...I got LaRue, Snyder, blah blah crapolas on the wire...I think in yer case I might go with Barrett but Closser does have steady contact numbers in the minor so he might overtake...my understanding of the sitch is Greene will start more games but understands he is there to help Closser adjust to the bigs...prolly see Closser pick up more playing time as the year progresses...

i grabbed barrett and dropped borowski, ill keep closser on my bench for now till i see what happens there.

ayala is available in all my leagues and i thought i heard he would take some saves away from cordero this year thats why i was asking about him, my only weak spot on all my teams is my closers, i refuse to take 2 stud closers early like alot of people, usually just one then one or 2 average closers later in the draft.
