Myers or Broxton

Postby wvufan1988 » Tue Mar 20, 2012 6:45 pm

Who would you go with if you needed a closer, between the two? Brett Myers or Johnathan Broxton

Myers because he has the job for sure.

Broxton likely shares with Holland, who is the best pitcher of the bunch.
But Myers has the job for now, so Myers, even though i won't own him.

I would rather have the Royals closer (assuming that it doesn't become committee) than the Astros closer. Myers has the job but I don't expect a lot of saves from him. I think both are wild cards so I might roll the dice on Broxton as I think there is more upside there.

Myers, and I think he'll get as many, if not more, save oppportunities than the Royals, or any other team. I mean how many times are the Astros going to blow someone out. With 60ish wins they'll get save oppportunities on at least 50% imo

if one of Broxton or Holland were guaranteed the closers role in Kansas City, I'd take that closer. but I don't think anything is settled there and it might not be even into the season. I'd lean more towards Holland becoming the closer and getting more saves than Broxton. Holland has been much better in recent years. Broxton hasn't been good since 2009.
because of that I would have to roll with Myers.

Myers first.

I think Holland eventually gets the job in KC, but Myers has the job for sure in Houston. You take the guy who is the closer over the one who could possibly be.

Can you help me land Ellsbury?
