I would never use a first or second round draft pick on a closer. Gagne will probably go second round in most fantasy leagues, which is why he wont be on any of my teams.

Well, I use 5x5, and while I probably won't take him as early as he will go (I'm sure some clown won't bother to change the default rankings, won't show up, and gets Gagne 2nd overall), I still think that in an NL-only league, he is worth a late 1st round pick. Now, I don't know jack about the AL, so I could be talking out of my ass about his mixed league rating. This year anyway, there are a ton of great picks in the AL, compared with the NL, so maybe a late third round rating is better in a mixed league. I guess I should find out soon, as I'm entering my first mixed league this year. :-o

Sorry Colour Wolf....I think we all posted at the same time at first....and I was responding to Lieter Fan...and the you responded to me....Sorry to come across wrong.... O:-)

I think a good case could be made for taking Gange in the first round of a NL only league using 5x5 scoring.... :-)

Absolutely no apologies necessary. You didn't come across wrong. It must be my reading comprehension that is the issue...
