Best CL in waiting is....??? (WHIR)

Postby emenewe5 » Tue Apr 05, 2011 3:34 pm

I'm loaded at SP in my deep, standard 5x5 but are very thin at CL.

Which of these guys is most likely to step-up and save my SAVES categorie this year.

Jake McGee TB - I view this guy as the future in TB but how long would I have to wait?
Drew Storen WAS - Is there a chance he gets back in good favors and reclaims the CL gig?
Jordan Walden LAA - I'm leaning here as a likely option. Rodney's on thin ice already.
Koji Uehara BAL - Could share S's with Gregg...and Gregg's wildness is always an issue.
Hong-Chih Kuo LAD - Broxton was awful last year and is off to another shaky start.
Wilton Lopez HOU - Lyon is a disaster and will get replaced but will it be by Lopez and how good could he be?

Thanks!

i'd go with your gut and go for jordan walden. all these guys are in similar situations and it might take a month to figure it out.

mcgee is begind farnsworth and i cant imagine theyd stick with him for very long. farnsworth throws hard but thas it
i feel nationals situation is going to be revolving door all year
uehara, showalter likes him more than gregg and hes probably better player but it seems like uehara wont be available to pithc back to back
kuo i think broxton is the guy. i think mattingly is loyal and hopefully he wont kill broxton like torre
brandon lyon is another retread, i mean lopez could replace him but as long as lyon is there hes going to be inteh mix

thanks for you r helpw tih mine

Well, Walden is now the closer. So marking him off the list, I would go with McGee. Tampa wants him to be the guy.

Help with my trade? Ichiro and Haren for Hamilton?

I would also Suggest keeping an eye on the other LA team, the Dodgers. Broxton has been very shaky. Id say keep an eye on Kuo and then K. Jansen after that. They could be getting a shot asap. Kuo will be a top 5 CL if he gets the chance and holds up the year
