I kept BJ Ryan in a four player keeper league coming into the league..

I'm with the people that say it depends on the number of keepers.. If you have five or less, I'd say its very hard to keep a closer..

I have both Ryan and Palpebon right now... I might have a hard time keeping either one of them with: Howard, Holliday, ARam (given the normal slow start and injury history, might not keep him), Chris Young, Hamels, Liriano?

Shhhh.


I was trying to keep him out of the conversation... ;-7


Right. Still think Encarnacion can hit 30 dongs? God I need him to get back on the field and start producing. I traded for him when he had 6 HR about 5 weeks ago and I think he's only hit one since then.

Sorry for the hijack.


I would say that none of my bold predictions will be coming true. Good thing I didn't put too much stock in any of them. I still think Encarnacion will be a good player, but he's been DLed and was hitting 7th and not playing every day before that.

In all honesty I forgot about Ryan. I tend to pay more attention to the NL (and the players on my teams... I dont have Ryan on any team.)

I would add Ryan to the list, but I'm not sure who to drop off. I still think I would rather have Rivera only because he's been doing it longer - you know what youre getting. But I tend to be a conservative drafter so there you go.

Fuentes is a great sleeper closer so I wouldn't keep him.

as the rockies get better he could get tons more saves
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
