Nice writeup! ;-D

Some people look at the team Gonzalez plays for and, based on that, ignore him. However, the idea that bad teams do not produce saves is a severe fallacy. As someone who frequents the Fantasy Baseball Cafe, I hope you have long abandoned that logic.


Todd Jones saved 40 with the Tigers last year, which made me a very happy Jones owner. B-)

I'm always looking for solid gambles when it comes to closers. Did wind up with Mike G. in one league this year, so here's hoping that he's solid, and a heck of a bargain (worst case is he cost me a relatively low draft pick). ;-D

Ack! !+) Yes, yes, you are most certainly correct. I was looking through my cheat sheets when I made that post and for some dumb reason I named his current team instead of last year's team. Doh! !+) Good observation, and thanks for the correction. ;-D

I have him in practically every league and is why I don't pick closers in the top 10 rounds. Will there really be much of a difference in stats betwen Gonzo and BJ Ryan, or many of the other closers picked 10 rounds earlier, this year?
