I think they're all good for 30 saves, assuming they stay in their current positions. There's some speculation that Graves could be traded at some time during the year, and his saves would probably stop at that point.

chacon or graves.

chacon is unproven, graves is more proven... but i think chacon might have a better chance to save like 40+ games if he stays healthy.

all speculation, but hey, whatcha gonna do?

by the way, chacon has a 0.00 era in 5 IP this spring.

i know spring training stats arent the definitive guide to regular season performance, but a really strong or really weak spring just might give you a little foresight into trends and who's going to potentially be dealing some outs this year.

I agree with you, but I gotta point out, they don't pitch in Coors during spring training. Just a thought. I've got Chacon and Riske, by the way, and I don't think it's too risky. Heh.

A note: Chacon and Graves qualify at SP, too, so you can fill your RP/P spots with closers and start either of them, too.

That being said, Riske is probably the best of the bunch, IF he closes. There is talk that Jimenez could be the guy in Cleveland now that Wickman's hurt, instead of Riske. Personally, I expect Riske to close and not give the job back to Wickman, because I think he'll succeed.

If you've already got your other RP/P spots filled, go for Graves. If not, take Riske.

I think Chacon will end up with the most saves, but the others will have better ERA/WHIP numbers...

Chacon's Home/Away ERA last year was 4.38/4.86. A marked difference, which was even more striking early in the year, when there was a lot of speculation that he had "tamed Coors".

I'm a Chacon believer this year. I think he can "tame Coors" in 04.

Why?

Because he CAN-CAN-CAAAAAN!!!!

Sorry, couldn't resist the horrible Coors Light commerical reference.

I have Chacon and Riske on both my teams, and feel good about
both. Remember, Chacon was ROY 2 years ago.

I am debating about getting Graves as well.

Graves never had more than 32 saves as a closer btw.

so 35 saves and 3.00 era is in reach.

But the fact I can use him at a SP as well as RP lineup spot for me makes him more valueable to me at least

I already have 2 closers, Rhodes and Dotel.

Riske is probably the best pitcher in the group though, but even if he does good Wickman could get his job back after All-star break.

Riske will have lower era, more strikeouts.
