Rank these closers. WHIR

Postby footballisbetter.com » Sun Apr 08, 2012 10:16 am

My league only allows WW additions once per week, and we must bid on them through a "silent" auction. Please help me rank these new closers in the order you would want them.

Aceves
Hector Santiago
F Rodney- always shaky
Henry Rodriguez- only temporary and may be splitting opps with Lidge

Peralta- looks to be behind Rodney
Meloncon

Santiago head and shoulders above the rest. He's not there due to injury. He's 'the guy' in Chicago until he gives his manager a reason to go elsewhere.

Yep. Santiago is the only guy I would throw a bid at.

If you HAVE to have one of these guys I'd take Santiago, but I still think Addison Reed will have that job by mid-July. But if you are submitting blind bids. Won't everyone go for Santiago?
You might get Rodney or Rodriguez cheaper

I'd stay away from Melancon and Aceves like the plague after the way they've pitched these last three games. I know it's early, but neither one of them seems to have the closer mentality.

depends on what you're looking for.. saves, holds, k/9, era, etc..

without knowing any of those I would go with the following. I only rate rodney ahead of the two boston boys because of his saves. if you're not specifically targeting saves i think both melancon and aceves will settle down. really i think rodriguez is the best pitcher in the bunch, but once storen comes back he loses some fantasy value.

santiago > rodriguez > rodney > aceves > melancon > peralta

Santiago has been named the Chi Sox closer, thus he is #1, get him NOW!

The Boston situation is all F'ed up, Aceves can't get anyone out, literally, he has given up 3 runs and has yet to record an out in 2 outings. It sounds like Bard may get the nod, because Melancon is a stiff as well.

Rodney will be second in line behind Peralta, my opinion only.

Henry may get a couple of opportunities while Storen is out, but that may be short lived.
