Cheap saves

Postby kingmike74 » Tue Mar 29, 2011 8:07 am

So I own Papelbon and Soria now I am looking for some cheap saves that might turn into a starting gig.

5x5 redraft.....who do you like below for cheap saves and maybe a gig in 2011?


Sergio Romo (SF)
Juan Gutierez (ARI)
Tyler Clippard (WAS)
Sean Burnett (WAS)
Mike Gonzalez (BAL)
Kevin Jepsen (LAA)
Evan Meek (PIT)


I saw Storen and NO WAY does he hold that job very long so I am leaning Burnett or Clippard. I think Burnett has the better "stuff."

None of those guys are clearly the Closer of the Future. For now, Romo will get some saves unless I missed something about Wilson's injury. Jepsen *could* be closing games sometime this year or the next, but from what I've read Jordan Walden is a better bet. I'd steer myself away from Juan Guiterez... he's just not that good. Also Mike Gonzalez until he shows he's healthy again.

Sergio Romo (SF) - Short term only. May get 2-4 saves at the start of the season.
Juan Gutierez (ARI) - Don't like at all. Prefer David Hernandez here. Hernandez could end up with 10-15 saves
Tyler Clippard (WAS) - Not real happy with his ST performance and Was has already said closer by committee. Can see 5-10 saves.
Sean Burnett (WAS) - Maybe the best RP in Was. I can see 10-15 saves.
Mike Gonzalez (BAL) - Probably the best arm in the Bal BP. I can see 10-15 saves.
Kevin Jepsen (LAA) - Love the arm. Concerned that Walden may get teh first look though.
Evan Meek (PIT) - I actually think Hanrahan is relatively safe.
