foulke or Rivera?

Postby icepak » Thu Feb 26, 2004 1:39 am

For yahoo public roto

I can acquire one of those two and leaning towards rivera even though the # of save opportunity would probaly be the same between the two teams.

Go with Rivera. He missed the entire first month last season or he would have gotten more saves than Foulke.

Plus the guy was unhittable in the playoffs against some of the best offenses.

I dont see anything wrong with a hunch. I think Rivera ends up having a better year than last year.

Rivera was hurt last year and still got 40 saves and ERA under 2 and almost a strike out an inning.

Rivera is a riskier pick with a higher ceiling. Foulke is the safer pick.

Neither, push it another round and take a stick or even a solid starter! :-B
