Storen just choked! Drop for Burnett?!?!?!?

Postby jruffus1 » Sat Apr 02, 2011 5:23 pm

I have had high hopes for Drew Storen to become the Nationals main closer, but he just gave up a homer in the 8th and they replaced him with Sean Burnett, who is looking pretty nice!!!! What do you guys think!?!?!?!?

I think you should use less punctuation; it makes you sound like you're having a seizure.

the season is only 3-days old....if you thought D.Storen would be the main closer of the future, why lose faith now?........"look F.Liriano had a bad outing - thought he would do better, I should drop him..."
It would be nice to know what you did with our advice - so please write a short reply

Yeah but he sucked during Spring training too, thats why I am not sure how long his leash is at this point.

If your question is "should you drop Storen for Burnett," post your league settings and roster.

If your question isn't really a question and you're just panicking early in the season about closer volatility, I'd recommend you breathe into a paper bag for a few minutes.

Drop hellickson and verlander too while youre at it. Verlander looked shaky in some of his innings. Storen has no future in Washington...


Its time to panic or jump ship. Maybe both?

Breath.

Then breath deep.

Then breath deeper.

Relax.

Chill.

Hmm..any other words work here?

JK with ya of course, but give the season a little more time before jumping ship. I think Storen will be good for 60+ k's and 25-30 saves.

Good luck ;-D

Yes, it's too early to panic, but IMO not too early to drop Storen for Burnett. Burnett is the closer for now, and as long as he does well he keeps the job, at least this year.
