We have a closer list, how about best setup men?

Postby thedukeorsino » Fri Apr 01, 2005 12:19 am

Rosters are slowly geting set. I know it won't be until a ways into the season that bullpen roles are truly figured out, but since it's seems to be rather hard to find accurate predictions for who will be the go to guys in the bullpen for a lot of teams, I'm wondering if you guys have any thoughts?


Here are some of the best RPs most likely to be setting up that I know of:

M. González (Pit - RP)
J. Rincón (Min - RP)
A. Otsuka (SD - RP)
T. Worrell (Phi - RP)
S. Linebrink (SD - RP)
U. Urbina (Det - RP)
J. Tavárez (StL - RP)
R. Madson (Phi - RP)
S. Torres (Pit - RP)
B. Donnelly (LAA - RP)
K. Calero (Oak - RP)
R. King (StL - RP)
S. Kline (Bal - RP)
J. Julio (Bal - RP)
J. Brower (SF - RP)
R. Cormier (Phi - RP)
L. Carter (TB - RP)
T. Gordon (NYY-RP)
M. Mantei (BOS-RP)


Most of these guys are taken by the end of the draft.
Can you think of other guys who will be used a lot to hold close games and are up to the task?

I would add Gordon of the Yankees to that list.

I find it amusing that a Red Sox fan lists out the top setup men and leaves off Gordon while counting Julio, Lance Carter, Brower and of course Timlin.

Hey, I said these were all I could come up with. I didn't say they were the only top guys... yeeeeshh!


And it was BOSTON who moved Gordon from being a starter (as he always had been) to a reliever when he played for them 1996-1999. He's only played for the Yankees one year :-°

Right one of the top 3 if not the top ranked setup man in 04 is forgotten, but we remember Jorge Julio and Lance Carter?...It is laughable really if not sad. Like listing out top closers and not including Gagne but remembering Batista.

It's almost as if you are taking it personal. Im sure that you wouldn't if Gordon were not a Yank.
