Cheap saves

Postby kingmike74 » Tue Mar 29, 2011 8:08 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."

I would take a shot with Romo. He should at least get you some saves in the first few weeks. After that i might take a flyer on Jepsen. I have no idea what is happening in Was and would probably stay away from that mess.

Burnett will get you a handful in Washington. From what I read, Nats like Clippard as the eight inning guy who can go one+ if needed.

Read an interview article was Pitt VP and basically said whenever Pirates have a mid-level closer on a one year contract, they will trade him at deadline. Which means one can expect Hanrahan to get Dotel'ed by the end of July.

Take it for what it is worth, but in a mix league I would start with Burnett early while moving to Meek in about six to eight weeks. If you think Meek will be gone, go Meek.

Of that group I think Burnett has the best chance.

Is Brandon League available? I would definitely invest in him. And with Storen, I think he will eventually take the closers role because they do in fact view him as the closer of the future. They tried to get him to alter his mechanics during spring training this year, but it didn't work out well. However ever since going back to old form he's been good.

The closer situation in Anaheim is tenuous at best so maybe Jepsen might be the answer for the long term. In the short term I agree with Romo as well (Wilson will probably miss the first two weeks)
