Good Question. I honestly have to say Capps, but I would like to see what people think here, as I have Wilson, Farnsworth, and Capps as my RP's. I personally think Capps is better......

I don't really like either one.
I have them in the bottom 7 of closers.
I could see both blowing up at some point.
Thornton has more heat on him with Reed and Crain.
If i had to pick, Thornton.

Capps I guess because there is less competition but I would try to avoid both.

If you have to choose one, go with the competent pitcher - Thornton. I also disagree with the notion that Capps has less competition. Glen Perkins is ready to takeover the closer's spot.

Id say Thornton to start. Both are on tough spots with guys behind them. And the CWS should be a touch better than the Twins should equal more save chances.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?t=442866
