Mike Adams or Brandon Lyon?!

Postby kidnemisis » Wed Apr 06, 2005 12:12 am

My closers are Lidge,Batista, and Adams in a 12 team 5 x 5. I can't pick up Lyon until a trade i have goes through but I feel like he will be gone by then. Who do you have more faith in and for what reasons? Adams or Lyon?

Lyon, looks pretty good. Fastball is in the mid-90's, sinker, curve. He looks like he'll be the closer the entire year.

Reason 2, he was in the Curt Schilling trade.

i'd go with lyon here. i'm not all that familiar with what mike adams has done this spring or last year, but he looks like he should be a solid, if not spectacluar, closer for milwaukee.

that said, the diamondbacks are a better team who should at least sniff .500 (dunno if that middle relief or bullpen can hold up) and lyon had a lights out spring, and has already converted his first save today, so you figure that lyon will get more save ops, and from the stats out there, he had the better spring.

so go with lyon estates, mister mcfly

Most definately Lyon. Did you see that kids sinker? It dropped off the camera even; as if it had hit a wall suddenly. Just incredible stuff.

We haven't seen Adams yet, so let's not count him out yet..

Lyons had a 1.56 whip the last few years he pitched, not very good..

It would help if the Brewers stopped getting these blowouts :-)
