Red Sox / White Sox / Tampa Bay closers? HELP!

Postby jtsandwich » Sun Apr 08, 2012 12:36 am

FAAB waivers are this evening, 12 team mixed 5x5. $1000 FAAB money. 2 teams loaded on closers and there are some options on the waiver wire tonight and 8 teams are looking for closers.

Who should I target?

Red Sox - Aceves or Melancon
TB - Peralta, Howell or Rodney
White Sox - H. Santiago or Reed

I think it is clear that Aceves will get the nod in Boston, but he will cost $300 FAAB and maybe even more and I don't know if he will produce. If he shits the bed, I think Melancon could get the chance.

TB may go committee (I have Farnsworth) but Peralta seem more logical, is he worth a claim.

White Sox, is it even worth picking up Santiago, I hear he may get the opportunity.

I am under the gun here, WHIR as always.

Thanks

I say you go for Peralta, then Santiago. Skip the Red Sox situation ... knowing them they may hire from outside anyway.
