I think Turnbow was one of the Angels top prospects a couple of years ago. His talent has never been the question. Like every guy with a good stuff, it's always been about his ability to harness his arsenal which has been in question.

In my opinion, this year's 'Turnbow' is Rafael Soriano of Seattle. I see him being filthy in the closer's role, and recommend snatching him up now if he's available in any league format.

;-D


If bH says it, then I'm a believer.

Looks like Chris Ray to me. Papelbon is looking more like this year's Mariano Rivera lol. I did however expect Jose Valverde to get into this conversation for Turnbow/Cordero of this year. So far no dice... Doh!

I agree about this to some extent that Soriano will be filthy as a closer, but when the hell is this going to happen? Guardado has just kept on ticking for like 3 years now...

Maybe I should have made it clear that I am talking about mass media (or fantasy media, if you like) attention here. Of course he's always had good stuff. Among scouts, he was considered the heir to K-Rod when Percival was still the closer, but he was buried in Milwaukee and got very little attention until he actually started saving games.

Asumikey, I think you should know that someone is sneaking on here and pretending to be you sometimes. He bears no resemblance to the guy in this thread...except for the classy icon, I guess.

If it is a guy who was really never hyped, I'm going with Ken Ray out of Atlanta. This guy has been good so far.
