Arizona Closer Situation: Kim or Mantei?

Postby kcs261 » Tue Mar 11, 2003 12:19 am

Does anybody think that Mantei can be effective as the AZ closer this season? It looks likely Brenley is intent on giving him a shot, which makes it an interesting situation. If Mantei could be effective, he could be a real sleeper closing on a very good team. But the health question is a big if. Any thoughts?

My thoughts are that this should move Kim up on your draft board. He is a great pitcher, and as a starter will probably get you a lot of wins and strikeouts. Worse case scenario, if Mantei gets hurt, Kim goes back into the closer role and gets you a lot of saves and strikeouts. Mantei is a risk, but Kim is a great pick for as far as he is falling in drafts because of his uncertain role with the Diamondbacks...
I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.
