Brandon Lyon's Value

Postby Fpower » Mon Mar 31, 2008 10:18 am

He was just dropped in my 12 team roto league. Anything wrong with him? Is he worth burning a high waiver priority on?

Other than the fact he isn't a good pitcher and has an injury history nothing is wrong with him. I don't think he'll hold his job but while he is getting saves he still has some value.

I drafted him late then dumped him for Kerry Wood.

The D-Backs may have 2 good starting pitchers (Great even) the rest of their staff is garbage including the pen.

Lyon is regarded by a lot of guys to be the closer most likely to lose his job first. That being said, as of right now he is still the closer for a team that should win a fair amount of games so he should be on someones team in a 12 team league. If you arent dropping anyone of real signifigance I would say go and get him.

Me too - and he hasn't been picked up, whereas Pena is owned. I think you're better off with someone else. While Lyon may be in line for saves, the way he's pitching he's not going to convert many - if any - of his opps. I see no upside to owning him - and Pena will take his spot before the end of April IMO....

Pick him up if you need a closer...but you don't wanna burn a waiver pick on him. And definitely not a good waiver pick.

Lyon is one of those players who is worth more on your team than in what you can get for him in a trade. Simple as that. His peripherals and history make him that way.

Shouldn't this be moved to the "Draft, Trade, Keeper and Waivers Questions" forum?

Boy, Lyon's taking a beating on these boards. An undeserved one in my opinion. He certainly looked dominant last night when he came in and K'd two to save the game.
