What do you guys think of Sean Burnett?

Postby rocknje » Tue Apr 05, 2011 11:48 am

Hello Everyone,


What do you guys think of Sean Burnett? It looks like he is the closer. Is he somebody worth picking up? If so, I was thinking of dropping Jordan Zimmerman.

Thank you.

Zimmerman has a good arm. Don't drop him.

Thank you for your help. In ESPN League it seems like people are dropping him. That's an idea. Does anybody else concur?

Bedard had a nightmare opponenent. Just ask any Red Sox starter.
His WHIP was 1,20 but got hurt by the longball.
I would wait to see how he does in his next start vs CLE at Safeco.

Do not pay any attention to drops, unless its injury related.
Most of the drops are people who have very little knowledge or streaming.
Wise managers have patience.

I think that Burnett will close until Storen starts pitching well, so he isnt a long term solution, and since you dont have any closers I would punt saves if I were you.

Thanks for the great advice. I agree. I will wait. I was planning on punting saves, but since my opponent so far by luck has a goose egg in saves I thought why not possibly pick one up. I think in the next five days he has to get at least 2 or more.
