I'd vote for Gagne if it was guranteed that he will close out 60 games this year


Same here.

For fantasy purposes, my vote goes to Soria. I think the Royals will give him a few more save opportunities this year. Lidge would be my second choice.

It's Lidge for the same reasons it was Lidge last round.

KRod. I will not own him, either, though. He is also the only one outta the top 5-7 that I could see having a bad season, too.

Lidge's early lead is gone. :-t

Lidge vs KRod
;-D ERA :-t
;-D WHIP :-t
;-D K/9 :-t
;-D K:BB :-t
;-D HR/9 :-t
:-t Saves ;-D

*based on '08 stats.

Other than the saves, Lidge won every above category. Why NOT Lidge?

You voted that he will be the 3rd best RP but you think he has a better chance of having a bad season than Lidge/Soria?

I wouldn't be surprised to see him have a bad season, big difference there. He IS the second or third best closer in baseball, IMO. But, of the top closers, He is the one with the most risk of 'flopping'.
