God help the Giants. I'm super deperate for saves, so I picked up Herges today. Brower is more of a long man in that pen, he's even been used as a spot starter from time to time. I think the Giants would like to leave him in that role, and as lefties rarely get the job, that pretty much leaves Herges.
Bringing up Valdez or Aardsma seems unlikely as they are so young and have little ML experience.
If I was desperate for saves, I'd go get herges right now. If he somehow gets on a roll, he might save 23 games like last year.
And Chacon your ERA and WHIP in the process. IF the Giants realy insist on using Herges, then fellow Benitez owners, we have to look elsewhere for saves. Herges is gasoline .
One league today: Schilling DL - Probably out a month or more
Benitez DL - Probably out most of the year.
Westbrook was active...oh my poor ERA...nice WW material now.
