Postby Ousmagic » Mon Jul 04, 2005 2:45 am

he only has 6 save opportunites this year and has converted 5 saves but he has an era over 5. Do you think he's going to be getting some save opportunities? right now hes not even worth having

Unless a team is truly awful save chances are very hard to predict. If he can stay healthy the Tigers will provide enough save opportunities for him.

I agree, but even really bad teams will have 30-40 SVO. I'm still hanging on to him in a couple leagues because he has little trade value and I'm hurting for closers. :-°

I'm sure you can find a team that will trade for one of them (or a better closer of yours). You can't just kick closers with jobs to the curb in 10 team or more leagues.

Yeah, you should be able to package him up in a trade. I would do it quick though. He just came back from an injury and looked pretty darn hittable. I wonder if his forearm is bothering him. Could be a season long ailment for Percy.
Hmmm :-? I wonder what Farnsworth is doing these days?

Percival has little to no trade value. He is in the Tyler Walker realm. You might be able to package him in a deal that upgrades him at the expense of something else, but I would think that is about it.
