Turnbow the #1 ranked player last week on Yahoo

Blows save but wins game. Mesa and Dotel were experts at that last year...

Turnbow just shows you how valuable saves and wins are and how any chump in the right place at the right time can become a fantasy powerhouse.

Enjoy the free points.

From a bitter non-owner. :-b

None of the closers who have settled in this year (Lyon, Batista, Turnbow) are in danger of losing their jobs; Turnbow has been fantastic with all these wins, especially for those of us who often forget to rotate in starters

Every closers blow saves, even gagne. When you have a bullpen like the brew crew does, a guy who could throw heat with a 99mile fastball closing isn't such a bad idea, even though their bullpen has been incredible so far. Don't worry, I see Turnbow keeping the job for the season. :-)

Turnbow threw strikes, he pitched well overall, he just gave up a HR to a good power hitter. I really wouldn't be worried about it.

Shame I don't own Turnbow. I'd use that #1 ranking to move him to an owner who doesn't realize just how worthless the Yahoo ranks are. B-)

I think the childhood teasing has made him into one tough son and me one happy fantasy owner.

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

T-bow has been pitching very well so far. I think he had something like 10-13 scoreless innings b4 ARam hit the HR off of him.

Very happy I picked him up.

Sure glad I grabbed him for a $1 at the end of my draft...figured he would get a chance this season for some saves, just never figured it would be this early

He's been looking great so far, and with 3 wins and 4 saves (with 13 K and a 1.88 ERA and .91 WHIP) in 14 innings, he's in absolutely no danger of losing his job based upon giving up a homer to a good hitter. To the contrary, if indeed his new delivery has fixed some of his control problems, he'll not only have the closers job locked down all year, but might actually finish with top-tier numbers. He certainly has wicked stuff. The Brewers will certainly be scrapping for wins, which would put him on the mound quite a bit.

Glad I picked him off the FA list right after he picked up his first save. ;-D
