Closer/Setup Man for the same team ?

Postby jbones733 » Wed Mar 31, 2004 6:34 pm

Is this a good idea. i have A rhodes and am thinking of adding Bradford, but is it good to have the setup man & closer for same team, eh, i could also get B Weber, would he be better ?

On one team I have Vazquez,Rivera,Quantrill and Gordon! That is probably overkill I'll be geting rid of Gordon I think.

But in general, I think it can pay off having a closer and his setup man. It paid off for me drafting Mantei and Valverde because now I'm not so bothered by Mantei going on the DL and I half-expected it to happen real soon (just not before the season even started :-D ).

good plan, because if the CL gets injured the setup man will likely fill his spot.
ex.) Curtis Leskanic was setup man, now filling MacDougals spot while MacDougal is injured.
or.) Dotel was the setup man, now that Wagner is gone hes the closer.

so i think its a good plan. just gives you a little extra insurance i think.
