Capps versus Soria

Postby futanto » Thu Apr 26, 2007 4:14 pm

This point in the season, which one of these guys is the better investment... there is a good chance that both are likely on many leagues' waiver wires at the moment but maybe not for long...

Soria plays for a team that will definitely win less than average, but he has played extremely well. Dotel looming? or maybe not if he keeps it up at this rate.

Capps, "the closer of the future," could be now if they opt to, but supposedly the pirates have other options. Pirates will probably win more than Kansas City, but the gap may not be huge.

Have to agree. It would be nice if you could pick up both, but if you can only fit one into your roster it should be the guy with the job: Soria. When/if it is announced that Capps has the job in Pittsburgh, then you can revisit the quesiton.

By the time u wait to see when it's announced he will likely be gone...

Just think logically, Torres is failing in a big way and that he has now lost his job is a given. Torres, has no pedigree as a closer, he just started out well.

Okay, now that that is out of the way. Of the three other potential candidates, who is likely to be the closer? Hmmm lets see, you've already annointed one of your relievers the closer of the future, that same reliever has an ERA and WHIP less than 1, and you have a young team that is not going to win it all at least for a couple of years. Hmmm do u go with Capps? I think so. See, no real need to wait 2-3 days for the team to formally give him the job, you already know they will.

Now between Capps and Soria. Both are unknowns, Capps may get slightly more opportunities with the Pirates so I would go with him.

If this is logic, then I'll take intuition. Torres may in fact lose this job, may in fact even lose it on the timetable you're suggesting. But there's nothing remotely logical about this statement.
