Who are the best Middle Relievers?

Postby gimpygecco » Mon Jun 30, 2003 10:25 pm

I may just tank the saves category in my 4-team league, providing I can get Soriano in return for my closers and Giles, who I won't need after Vlad comes back or if Chavez gets hot. This is a keeper league by the way. So, if I can get Soriano and I do trade all 3 of my closers, I'll bring in some middle relievers to help ERA, WHIP, K's and hopefully a couple wins. I already have Dotel. Donnelly, Hasegowa and Santana are taken by other teams. Which 3 middle relievers should I grab?

I figure that some of these guys would be good but I don't know which or if there is someone else:
-Hawkins
-Rhodes
-Mota
-Shuey
-Lidge
-Marte
-K-Rod

please respond mainly to the question of which relievers and not the idea of tanking saves. I may make another post on the tanking saves topic later.

All of the relievers you mentioned are very good although I would probably avoid K-Rod as a safe option because he has been very inconsistent all year. Also look at Brendan Donnelly, Scott Shoenweis and Ben Weber in the Anaheim bullpen, they are all safer than K-Rod. If you can look past his low strikeout rate, Shigetoshi Hasegawa is a good middle reliever that gets into lots of games and has a really low ERA and WHIP.

I'd definitely get Lidge.

I'll save my opinion on tanking a catagory.

so Lidge (who I actually did own earlier until I got a third closer) and who else?
Donnelly, Santana and Hasegawa are NOT available

My guess is Lidge, Hawkins and _________ ? (fill in the blank)

Yeah, I'd go with Madison's picks, Mota is an excellent setup man and will help you with ERA
