Any other closer situations we should be keeping a close eye on?


Havok's Weekly Closer Complex article? Where do I find this?


It is on the fantasybaseballcafe front page on fridays

I doubt it is a save a week (Aardsma won't see 25+ save opps) if Morrow remains the primary go-to-guy but 10-15 opps is certainly likely. Morrow will probably pitch more back to back opps as the season goes on too. Also, I doubt Seattle keeps winning like they have. Definitely worth holding in deeper leagues if you need saves.


I really don't think Aardsma is worth holding on to in non-hold leagues at this point unless Morrow goes down with an injury. Some of the save chances Morrow misses, for whatever reason, will go to matchup guys, ie lefties, and not Aardsma and Aardsma doesn't have the track record you really want in a MR for shallow or mixed leagues imo.


I concur.. if your going to hold on to a backup for strikeouts low era and possible wins I'd pick_up Brian Bruney, NYY 12so 2 wins 6ip...ect

BJ Ryan got the save today, does this mean Downs is no longer worth holding onto? Does anybody know if Ryan's velocity has returned to where it was?

Downs is going to be a valuable reliever worth having whether he's accumulating Saves or not. But it's clear that if he's healthy BJ Ryan will get every Save Opportunity.

It's easy enough to just go to his Yahoo! player page and check, but yes.

Yes, obviously they are going to let him try to finish the game. Let's see how he does and then post about it.


What don't you guys get about not making this thread so cluttered it becomes painful to look through?

There is zero need for most of this stuff (including me having to ask you guys to please figure it out!)

Before anybody asks, Coffey's Save today against the Mets was the 8 out variety. I don't think there's much to be read there...
