In a league that counts Holds / Saves / ERA / WHIP / K

how do you rank these three RP? In my opinion, all should be in position to earn some holds while providing solid numbers across the board in K, WHIP, ERA. Plus, all three should be in position to take over the Closer's roll if Rivera/Wickman/Percival go down for the count.

opinions?

Riske, Gordon, F-rod

Riske: Could open year as closer
Gordon: Would close if Mariano does his normal DL stint of the past couple seasons.
F-rod: Not a given he'd close if Percival went down. Donnelly got the opportunities last year.

With the latest news on Wickman, I'd go

Riske
K-Rod
Gordon

Percival is a bit of a risk as well, and K-Rod has a lot more upside than Gordon.

Hmmm... my Pitchers look like this: (I've got stud bats so don't worry about the medium strength here)

SP Mulder
SP Beckett
SP Santana

RP Rivera
RP Izzy

P Gordon
P Rodriguez

Bench W Miller
Bench J Contreras


using the categories I mentioned above, plus W and L, you think I should drop Gordon for Riske if he's avail? Maybe he's a better bet because Rivera or Izzy could also go down and then I'd have another good Saves guy....

If your'e going to pick up Riske, dump FRod because Gordon is a nice insurence policy for Rivera.

Yeah, since you already have Rivera, best to keep Gordon and drop Rodriguez

Your animated gif both intimidates and impresses me.
