Sasaki or Mantei: which oft-injured closer is more valuable?

Postby Ultimate Diva » Mon Jul 07, 2003 11:21 am

If you could have one of these two for the rest of the season, which would it be?

Sasaki--if you choose him, he's unavailble for another 4 weeks or so. That said, he will close for one of the best team's in baseball over the last portion of the season.

Mantei--if you choose him, he gets immediately inserted into your lineup. Plus, the Snakes are making a run and get Johnson and Schilling back soon. That said, Brenley said he will split time w/ Valverde and he has a history of getting injured.


My vote: Mantei. Valverde has set Mantei up the last two games--Mantei's the closer and the D'Backs are on a roll.

Sasaki. Mantai will end up hurt again.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Sasaki hurt himself carrying suitcases. Mantei hurt himself pitching. I would rather have the guy who can do his job without hurting himself.
Looking at the ball going over the fence isn't going to help.

I'd go with Sasaki. As long as the Mariners don't trade for another closer, he'll be back closing and hasn't been nearly as injury prone as Mantei. I think a trade is as big of a risk as injury for Sasaki, but the Mariners haven't typically done big deadline trades.
