Need Some Advice...

Postby YardBirds » Mon Apr 04, 2005 12:51 am

I just landed Aquino yesterday on waivers, but now he has lost his starting job to Lyon. I had Lyons on waiver, but figured out if I picked him up that way, rather than FA, he wouldn't be added to my list until after opening day for the Dbacks.

Should I keep the waiver on him to insure that I pick him up, or should I wait until whatever time (if you could tell me this it would help me too) he clears waivers and changes back to free agent to pick him up so that I can play him tommorow.

then

Should I drop Aquino to the wire in hopes of Lyon keeping the job, at the expense of J. Reed of my bench (who i think is a great sleeper) or should I drop Reed and keep Aquino and Lyon until I know for sure who the closer will be.

I ask this b/c during my draft I didnt pick up a second closer, so I had to wait on Aquino.... now I need Lyon

Ill simplify - pick up Lyon and drop Aquino, keep J. Reed on BN

pick up Lyon and drop Reed, keep Aquino on BN


The reason this is important is b/c I only have Ryan as a closer, and 3 elite MR... but I still need a decent closer, Brazoban was picked up last night.
