Need to Drop a Closer - WHIR!

Postby Oatsdad » Thu May 05, 2011 10:10 am

H2H league that uses holds. I like to roster 6 starters and 6 RPs: 4 closers, 2 "holders". (Most other players seem to ignore holds, so 2 is enough for that cat.)

Bizarrely, someone just dropped Neftali Feliz on the verge of his return from the DL, so I snagged him. Dropped Ted Lilly to get him and now have 5 closers, 2 holders.

Really want to get back to 6 SP/6 RP but can't decide which closer to drop. Here's who I have:

Kimbrel
Street
Walden
Santos

Santos feels like the obvious choice, but he's looked awfully good as closer. Thoughts?

Santos is the choice if you feel you need to drop one of them. Have you tried working out a trade first though?

Was gonna pick up Ian Kennedy.

Will try to swing a trade - not optimistic it'll happen, but will try! If not, adios, Santos! :-D

Update: was able to swing a trade of Feliz straight up for Matt Kemp. Not even what I proposed - the other guy offered it - and I pounced! I know Kemp's slumping right now, but I still think this is a massive steal: essentially I took a WW claim and turned it into Matt Kemp. (Or if you look at who I dropped for Felix, I traded Ted Lilly for Matt Kemp.)

Now I just gotta hope it doesn't get vetoed! :-o

Wow, that is highway robbery. I could actually see it getting vetoed under the circumstances.
