Burnett. He should see the most save opps early on in the WAS pen.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.

Thx for the help with mine.

I would prob. go Burnett do to him getting save opp. now. But I would drop him easily if some other SP or RP starts to heat up.

I go with Burnett, then Walden. YOur closers (rightnw) are good, but Lyon has his struggles and League is unproven. I always like to carry RP who help rack up K and keep a low WHIP...both of these guys do it and Burnett will get a few SV as well.
