dayam, solid team... this may be one of the few exceptions in the fantasy world where riske may not be needed... burrell or sabathia may be ur only candidates, but they may have a huge payoff this season as well...

this is the problem w/ 9 team leagues... too much talent to go around. :-/

Cordero's a really solid closer. He closed the end of last year off nicely.

I don't see anybody except Burrell maybe. You don't need him, and you could use another closer. I don't know if Riske will get more K's than Nathan though. They should be about the same. And since Riske has Jimenez waiting in the wings, and Wickman is going ot be back in a few months, Nathan is a safer pick. And I guess Riske is a risky pick :-D

I'd drop Burrell and grab Riske. Than maybe trade Percival for a good starter.

Very nice team there. Drop Burrell for Riske.

The Cleveland media seems to think that Riske is the best pitcher in their pen. The only reason that Wickman was the closer prior to his injury was his big contract. I would expect Riske to hold onto the closer's job.
