Which Clorser should I play?

Postby ob187 » Sat Sep 06, 2003 3:37 pm

I'm currently 2nd in a 10 team 5x5 league.

I have four closers:
Beck, Rod RP SD
Riske, David RP CLE
Hoffman, Trevor RP SD
Cordero, Francisco RP TEX

In order to move up in the standing with Wins and K's I've elected to go with 7 SP and 2 closers and reserve one of my closers. Which two closers should I play next week and which one should I drop?

Pitching: (ERA-1st, K-3rd, S-5th, W-4th, WHIP-1st)

Zito, Barry SP OAK
Colon, Bartolo SP CHW
Webb, Brandon SP ARI
May, Darrell SP KC (two starts this week)
Buerlhe, Mark SP CHW
Towers, Josh RP TOR (two starts this week)
Alvarez, Wilson RP LA
Beck, Rod RP SD
Riske, David RP CLE

Reserves
Cordero, Francisco RP TEX

Injured
Mulder, Mark SP OAK
Mora, Melvin LF BAL
Hoffman, Trevor RP SD

What is your reason that I should drop riske?

Isn't he the closer for Cleveland?

Start Cordero and Riske. They are both the undisputed closers on their teams. Beck and Hoffman right now are splitting save opps in San Diego, so part time closers on a team that doesn't win much don't have much value. Hoffman is pitching every 3rd day whether there's a save opp that day or not, and Beck is getting any save opps that don't fall on Hoffman's day. It really means that they will split them 50/50 and might each get 2 saves the rest of the way.

I'd start Cordero and Riske. They both have control over the job.
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.....
