Does he become anymore valuable if you also own Affeldt? Also, who is a more viable pickup with a high waiver priority - Turnbow or Burgos?

Both Baltimore and Boston currently have less SVOs then KC. A team doesn't have to be good to get SVOs. So if this guy pitches well (I have no idea if he will) he'll get his chances even on the Royals. ;-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Yeah good upside. He is coming from AA Wichita where he dominated and Pena has said that he is just filling in until Affeldt comes back.

i remember distinctly reading that pena had indicated that this guy might well be a long-term solution. and, of course, now i can't find it...scratch that, found it:

rotowire: if we think Burgos can be the closer on this ballclub for a long time, we need to give him the ball right way and see what he can do."


that implies more than temporary fill-in to me, anyway.

yeah, yes...

An important distinction as far as I'm concerned. So, I ask my question again, do you think that:

Burgo's becomes anymore valuable if you also own Affeldt? Also, who is a more viable pickup with a high waiver priority - Turnbow or Burgos? Or wait for a Marte type player later on in the year (deep league, 10 keepers)

Ignore the post 2 posts up dude. Don't drop Sheets. I'm sure he was joking but he could have implied that. Between this, and being dissatisfied with Andruw Jones's manhood...I think I am going to ignore this guy too. :-B
