Papelbon for Wandy? WHIR

Postby tacobender44 » Wed Jun 01, 2011 1:21 am

i'm considering this deal, how do you guys feel about it?

i get Wandy and i give him Papelbon, who doesn't have as many saves as my other two closers. Here's my staff

SP - Gio Gonzalez
SP - Jaime Garcia
RP - Axford
RP - Street
P - Papelbon
P - Pineda
P - Kennedy
P - Latos
BN - Ubaldo, Nolasco, Floyd

I wouldn't do it. Wandy's ok but not great.

Papelbon is arguably top 5 closer in the game.

Nope. Paps should have more value than that. Quality closers are pretty shallow right now and SP is very deep.

Try one of your other closers. Going forward, Papelbon could be a top-3 closer on a stacked RSox team.

Don't Do it. You should be able to get a much better starter than wandy. Also- judge closers by their skill, not in the number of save opps they've gotten so far. Papelbon is better than Axford and may be better than Street by the end of the year.
