Julio's value in a dynasty league?

Postby yankee_cafe » Wed May 25, 2005 11:40 am

There are a few weak closers on the wire in my pool (Dempster, Bruney ...). I'm just curious if Julio has more long term value.

I guess my main question is do you see him as a top setup guy for the rest of season, or is there a possibility of a trade in his future?
Can we build it?

I'd rather have Julio than Bruney. That said, Julio simply is not that good and in my opinion his career ceiling is an Urbina/Alfonseca/Todd Jones type as an on-again/off-again type from team to team and season to season.

Everyone seems to be going by the inital impression of his rookie year, which was excellent, but check out his stats for the MKB seasons after that and his minor league career: he has a crappy crappy WHIP, one that certainly does not indicate that he is an elite RP. I could never understand the infatuation with this guy. As good as Ryan has performed, he was completely unproven as a closer going into the season and it speaks volumes about Julio that the O;s would demote him for a guy who was so unproven.
