Advice for Uggie Owners. What should we do?

Postby KansasCityBoxer » Wed Jun 08, 2005 7:35 pm

I have him in each of my 3 leagues-none of which count holds. Is there any value in hanging on to him any longer, or should we just drop him and look for someone to fill in?

Also who are some of the possible FA closers we should keep an eye on?

I'd hold onto him until the trade deadline. There's a huge market for closers out there, and Urbina could be traded again by the Phils to any number of contenders in the next 6 weeks.

I'm thinking of dropping him for Reitsma from ATL. How long is Reitsma closing for the Braves?

Definitely drop Urbina for Reitsma.

And unless you are in a holds league, I think it is safe to drop Urbina now for anything that could help you elsewhere.

Drop UUU for Reitsma, but keep an eye out in case he is dealt again at the deadline.

I wouldn't hold him another day. I think the Phils will be in the thick of a wildly scrambled National League East this year and will use him as their main set up guy with Worrell gone. Good insurance for a Wagner injury.

I dropped him today for Brian Fuentes.

agree with rlee.

Drop Urbina immediately, he won't be getting traded again. The Phillies need this guy for the season.

His value is limited if your league doesn't count holds so if you have someone like Reitsma available, it's a no brainer what you have to do.
