angels7777 .. are you saying that because of Motte's uncertainty as a closer only or from potential as well? I am a little afraid of both (Motte's role and Cordero's health - he looks shaky from offseason surgery). Thanks for the help!
Pretty close DTChiefs .. We have only 3 reserve spots and have to start to RPs. In a 10-team league, most of the closers are taken obviously. I'm pretty cramped for space because I'm trying to keep at least one starter (Chris Young), one backup to a vital position (2B-Weeks), and one breakout candidate (Gordon).
There are other RP choices out there on the waiver wire that I could go with (Morrow, Capps, etc.), but I'd like to hedge my bets a bit -- main problem is that I'm a Cards fan and they have not had a great closer for a while. I want to have faith in Motte a little too much maybe and I need help to make sure I'd make a good decision by picking Motte up.
Definitely drop Weeks and grab Capps, forget about Gonzalez. I'm not that big of a fan.
It's tough man, you really love the upside of Motte, his arm, etc. But, Cordero had a good year (last year) until the last month or so and he's experienced, but he still comes with negatives. I'm a gambling man, so I'd go with Motte. Also, you have to get Capps, ASAP.
