I prefer Madson since he won't have any competition for the job for at least a month.

I'd go Boggs. The difference between these two is that Boggs has won the closer's job, while Madson is filling in for the closer's job until Contreras/Lidge come back.

Madson has better skills in my opinion, but has less of a chance of keeping the closer's job with 2 legit guys who are now injured just waiting to take the position back when they are healthy.

Boggs has good skills and a better shot at having the closer job for the rest of the year I think. Tough call. Boggs for the season but Madson for the short term until Contreras/Lidge come back.

I'm thinking if I go with Madson for the next month, I can snag Aardsma or even someone else for when I have to drop Madson. The Phils will likely have more opportunities, as they will win more games!

It's really close saves are hard to project just cause a team wins more doesnt mean their closer has more save opps since they could play in all blowouts. That being said I would pick up boggs since he has the chance of keeping the job for the whole year where as Madson is only just temporary. Remember fantasy baseball is a marathon not a sprint.

help with mine?
