Why has no one mentioned Qualls? + TB Closer?

Postby ReincarnatedIntoCansecoBiceps » Thu Jun 11, 2009 6:59 am

This guy even admitted himself this tendinitis issue would not being going away soon, which sounds ominous for a DL Stint. So would the hot-handed Jon Raunch be the closer in the event of a DL stint, or SU man Tony Pena?

And Percival's DL trip a while ago, has yet to reveal the replacement closer. Anyone have a guess on who the best bet would be?

For those of us in need of saves, this is imperative information.

qualls pitched in a non-save situation last night (they were losing) but gave up 1 run. Tony Pena would most likely be the closer, rauch has been used in middle relief which means there is little chance he is the closer if something happens to qualls. pena is the add if your desperate and have room on your roster, but pena has been shaky the past 2 weeks so i wouldn't add him until/if qualls goes on the DL.

the rays BP is a full-blown committee. i know as a fantasy player you don't want to hear that but joe maddon could care less about fantasy baseball. depending on matchups in the 7-8-9 innings maddon could use any of wheeler, howell, nelson, izzy, etc in any type of order to close out a game. stay away from the situation because its just a guessing game...but if MUST add someone, it should be howell. howell has great K numbers and will help you in ERA/whip but he is most likely the furthest guy from closing out games as he is a lefty specialist...although he occasionally does get the save.

Check out the closers thread at the top of the Baseball Leftovers forum, these situations along with other closer situations are discussed there to the point of beating a dead horse, but you'll find a lot of the information you're looking for in that thread.
