Need a FA CL...please help? (WHIR)

Postby emenewe5 » Fri Jun 03, 2011 1:36 pm

Soria's collapse has left me in rough shape.

15-team, very competitive, season-long points league:

I've got Ryan Madson but need to have someone in my RP2 slot.

Available:

Jon Rauch - Don't fully trust FF and Rauch could stay in the mix
Frank Francisco - Before the season seemed like a decent option
Brian Fuentes - Still getting some S chances
Vicente Padilla - Could get chances coming off the DL here
Mike Adams - Very good set-up man that gets some points for H's and if Bell gets traded, could be a good option to have?

Open to any and all suggestions...thanks!

I would take Mike Adams from that list. I'm assuming Johnny Venters is on someones team already?...

Agree with Adams. The rest of that bunch is scary...almost as likely to get you negative points. Adams is a stud and could be closing soon.

I`d grab Adams. Heath Bell is a trade candidate so while it won`t pay off now it will possibly in the future the rest of the options are all questionable at this point.

I'd go Vicente Padilla or Adams, leaning Padilla. Looks like the plan is to put Padilla in the closer role. Adams is more of a long-term-play. I assume Crow is gone? What about Koji Uehara? Can Gregg really keep his job much longer?

Padilla, then Francisco or Rauch (take your pick who will get the job in the end)

Adams ... if a guy is not gonna get a ton of saves yet, I at least like that he is bound to pitch well in the interim.
