Does Farnsworth still have any redeemable fantasy value ?

Will he vulch saves since the Braves are on a winning spree? He throws alot of ks... but minus the ks he will get you does he stand a chance of taking over?

If you can, I'd hold onto him for a lil while. Reitsma has pitched well of late but that doesn't mean he wont faulter. Farnsworth has shown he is capable of it and I doubt Bobby Cox will hesitate to slide him in if Reitsma is struggling. Expect him to be on a shortleash.

Yeah, if you don't really need saves or don't have other volatile closers and have space, keep him. He does have good stuff.

If you're in a Roto league and need him for the ratios and K's and maybe holds, he's still usable. ;-D

This coming from someone who dropped him for Rodney in like 4 leagues. :-o

i have Ryan, Street, and Rodney as well as Farney... so i think ill keep him for cheapy saves or his high ks but if Cox doesn't pitch him often enough, he will go to the wire... although i love having a brawler on my team.

He is also valuable in leagues that count tackles. ;-D

lol Nice .. ;-D

Yeah I was going to say .. unless you plan on cutting the brake lines on Reitsma's motorcycle or something, I would say no. Cox/Mazzone have always had a long leash with their closer, barring an absolute collapse, (i.e. Kolb, Wohlers, Potty Mouth Guy, and quite a few others... )

I'd say Reitsma is safe for the rest of the season.

Ya Im crossing my fingers for Reistma.

I really don't think ATL was shopping for a closer, and this deal sorta fell into their lap.

Farnsworth is as proven a closer as resitma was back in May when he first got the job.

Resitma now---> Farnsworth if he faulters. Knowing ATL the leesh should be fairly long.
If you found my advice helpful, please help me

I don't need the roster spot right now, so I'm holding on to him until I see how the Braves are going to use him at least.
