Mesa's option declined

Postby Pogotheostrich » Tue Oct 25, 2005 4:31 pm

The Pirates informed Jose Mesa that they would pay a $500,000 buyout rather than exercise his $4 million option for 2006.

Good news for M. Gonzalez owners. :-D
Torres could still become the closer or they could split duties but I like my chances.

This makes Gonzalez a trendy pick later in 6x6 leagues with Holds. He is always solid with his ratios, will collect a number of holds (if he isn't the closer) and saves if he is the closer.

No surprise about Mesa there. I'll be interested to see who is named closer, should they name one, in the near future.

I hope that they make Sydney Crosby closer - he can do anything.

Jason Bay said he would do it. It has got to be easier than the HR derby. ;-7

Does this mark the beginning of the new "Closer Watch" thread?

Seems like a "wait and see what happens" situation with the Pirates. It could be Torres, Gonzalez, or an unknown pitcher who takes over the closer's role in Pittsburgh. I'm going to wait until the season starts before I pick a Pirate's closer, hopefully the situation will settle itself by then and a valuable fantasy option can be chosen.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
