Raf Soriano...another save

Postby gmoney973 » Wed May 09, 2007 11:37 pm

Will Soriano keep the job when Wickman comes back? He has 2 saves in a row and 3 since wickman went on the DL. He is doing nice right now. What do you think?

I believe Soriano and Gonzalez are being played based on match-ups so Soriano isn't locked into the job. I assume Wickman gets the job when he comes back since that's all he can do. The guy can't go multiple innings and he doesn't usually play when there isn't a save op.

This is about right. Gonzalez already has one save, with Soriano having served the setup role. Soriano will get more of the opps, but not all.
Unless Wickman's troubles extend fairly deep into the season, or he struggles upon his return, he will be the closer. Think Detroit last season. The better numbers guys for fantasy were setting up the ho-hum option, but that can work pretty effectively in real baseball.
