How to pick a closer???

Postby thestampact » Tue May 24, 2005 12:46 pm

I've tried everything, but can't seem to pick up a closer who gets me saves. Does anyone have a system that works for winning the SAVE category?

well at the rate that closers are getting hurt, demoted or just plain bounced lately its almost a coin toss. alot of managers seem to be going the dreaded CBM angle. just try to read little blurbs and make a guess as to who will move into the role. thats pretty much what ive been doing. and of course read peoples opinions/comments here on the subject who are fans of the team.

Before the season I always look at these things in this order.

1. Job Security - this is the most important
2. Ability - mosty K's
3. Opportunity - check out the save opps the team had last year.

Thanks for the input. I have Gagne on my roster. Should I just leave him in once he takes over the reins and go by committee until he comes back?

Gagne is already back. He had a rough outing the first night back but has looked good since then. Leave him in.

definetly want to leave gagne in. he will be back to form soon. they wanted him to pitch in a short minors rehab stint but he didnt want to. he will be fine once he gets some work in.

It is funny you bring this up because I play Rivera each week, and sometimes Hermanson. I currently have B. Looper, but Danny Kolb is on the waiver list and I am thinking of dropping Looper for Kolb.

I think Kolb got out of hit slump and has better save opportunities than Looper, but I am unsure.

the only thing that saved kolb last night was the fact that it was more than a one run lead. he still had control problems and gave up a lead off homer. otherwise its a bs. course bernero wasn't that great in the eight either but kolb certainly not any more reliable than he was before he lost the job.
