Thornton or Chapman?

Postby felixthecat011 » Fri Mar 30, 2012 3:08 pm

10 team, non-keeper, 5x5 league.

Both Matt Thornton and Aroldis Chapman are on the wire - who's the better pick up? My closers are Bell, Bailey, Myers and Broxton (assuming he gets the job).

Chapman is a wild card - could be in the rotation, or close - with more upside, but it looks like Thornton is the favorite for saves right now.

(Starters are Halladay, Price, Ervin Santana, Buchholz and Chris Sale.)

I would take Chapman, and hope he starts.

Chapman. I think he might have the most value even if he doesn't start.

Thorton for me. You could use another SP in which case I would assume there are better options that Chapman.
