TEX Setup - Joaquin Benoit vs. CJ Wilson vs. Frank Francisco

Postby Super Manny » Mon Jul 02, 2007 9:15 pm

It's no secret that Texas is expected to deal either Gagne, Otsuka, or both before this year's trade deadline. If and when this occurs, who do you expect to take over the 8th inning setup duties for the Rangers? There are several talented young arms in the pen vying for the spot...

Joaquin Benoit - 42.0 IP, 2-2, 1 SV, 9 HLDs, 43 K, 3.43 ERA, 1.33 WHIP
CJ Wilson - 37.0 IP, 0-1, 0 SV, 7 HLDs, 33 K, 2.68 ERA, 1.22 WHIP
Frank Francisco - 30.1 IP, 1-0, 0 SV, 7 HLDs, 21 K, 3.86 ERA, 1.38 WHIP

Who gets the call...? :-?

Benoit has the best stuff and is having the best year. So, I expect him to move up to any vacated spot be it setup or closer. If they trade both, I think Benoit goes to closer and Francisco goes to setup. I also think that duo will perform well in those spots.
