Wickman traded, Carmona the new closer...who's the setup man

Postby DaleMurphy » Fri Jul 21, 2006 7:14 am

I need holds bad and I have to drop Wickman since I'm in a AL-only league...Carmona is already taken. So who steps into the setup role?

Mota?

Thanks WHIR

I am betting on Betancourt to have the 8th inning. He, IMO, would be the next in line to get saves if/ when Carmona crashes (and young "closers" more often than not do).

Betancourt's had a rough year but a lot of it had to do with the injury earlier in the year. He's got an established track record though as an elite setup man...I would go that route.

Could also be Jason Davis who was called up.

Man! You bet me to it, that's exactly what I was gonna say... anyone think Davis is worth a flyer with the amount of holds that typically occur in Cleveland's Bullpen (obviously in Holds leagues)?

I think it depends on who the last man on your roster is. I think this will sort out over the next 2-3 weeks with one of these three emerging as the guy. If my last man is making little contribution, I might take that flyer. Otherwise, I'm going wait and see who has a good outing or two.

Betancourt would be my guess.

Well at the moment it is George Sherill, I picked up Joel Peralta thinking he would get holds, but then he got sent down... also Wise and Villone are available.

I just stopped into this thread to say that the author's user name is the greatest one I've ever seen.
