Drop Rodney or Fuentes?

Postby Rance Mulliniks » Tue Apr 05, 2011 6:27 pm

Stanton is on the WW. I was just able to grab Walden, who will at least temporarily take over the closer spot for Rodney. Question is who do I drop for Stanton - Fuentes or Rodney. Both have looked horrible. Fuentes will lose his job once Bailey is back, and might lose some save opportunities to Balfour. Rodney might get moved back into the closer role if Walden stumbles. Thoughts?

Personally, I'd drop Fuentes. Like you said, bailey will take back the closers role once he comes back healthy. And I think Walden will run with the closers gig, but there's always that chance he could get lit up, so Rodney could get another chance.
Remember me?

I'd drop Rodney. Walden has looked good so far this season and was great in spring. I think Rodney's days closing are over. Fuentes has some value in that nice Oakland bullpen, and Bailey might be slow to come back.

I agree with this. But grab Stanton, for sure.

Help with my trade? Ichiro and Haren for Hamilton?

I'd drop Rodney... with Walden looking good so far and Rodney's wildness, I don't see him regaining the closer's role again.

On a side note, why is Stanton on waivers?!? :-o
