These guys have such similar fantasy valuesw it's almost like two sides of the same coin. Flipping a coin might actually be the bets way to make this decision...

Give a slight edge to Padilla, because he strikes out more (barely) and has a little more experience under his belt.

Wickman or DeJean or Escobar

I currently have Wickman, but he's been blowing saves recently. DeJean and Escobar are on the market. Should I drop Wickman in favor of DeJean or Escobar?

Stick with Wickman. He's only blown one save this season (out of 10 chances), and when he did, he picked one up in the second game of the day.

Wickman's been money in the bank so far, the others haven't. Stay put.

I still think Fogg isn't completely a sure thing, while Padilla has looked great, and just LOOK AT HIS NUMBERS, they're stunning. Other than one not-so-great start which was AT Houston, he's been unbelievable. Of course, Fogg beat Johnson ... so it's really up to you.

I think it's a misconception to say one pitcher beat another. They pitch to the offense of the other team, not vs each other. Fogg pitched a decent game VS AZ. and Randy was unfortunate to have an unearned run scored against him.

Padilla has much more upside, IMO. He was thought to be a good pitching prospect before this season. Fogg has never been known as a good prospect. He's done well so far, no doubt, but his K's are dropping and he doesn't go deep into games. I think his good performance is mostly due to him being relatively unknown. We'll see how he does this week with his 2 starts vs CHC and HOU (I think that's who he's playing).

BTW: I would still hold Wickman, but he's reporting elbow pain, so it may be time to look at other options.
