Postby NittanyLions1 » Sun Apr 08, 2012 6:41 pm

NOW WE HAVE WAIVERS coming up and I want to get rid of Fuentes. HOW WOULD YOU RANK THESE RELIEVERS BELOW BASED ON MY POINTS SYSTEM? I WILL HAVE THE NUMBER 12 WAIVER SPOT.

Santiago. He is the one with the job that hasn't blown up like Aceves has.

Thanks but its likely I won't get him since I have the 12th spot. Any thoughts on others beyond him? Thanks!

Only two I would bother making that move for are Santiago or Aceves and I would much rather take Santiago after seeing Aceves pitch his first 2 times out.

Forgot about Andrew Cashner. What do you guys think about him? Would you put him behind or ahead of Holland, Peralta, Aceves? Might not be bad insurance for Street and he looks to get a good amount of holds no?

With saves being the biggest points i like Holland (after santiago is gone).

Holds are almost as valuable as saves and Bastardo was pretty impressive for philly laster year. Closed for a while and did a great job. I like him.

The others are a crap shoot.. Aceves should settle down and be okay. Who knows if he'll be the closer when this happens tho. Salas is waiting in the wings if Motte blows up. Motte is unproven really over a whole season. He was good in the playoffs, but still untested long term in my eyes. Perkins is in the same boat waiting on Capps to meltdown this year.

A lot of speculative closers..

santiago, holland, bastardo, aceves, perkins

in that order.

;-D

Pass on Aceves right now. He simply can't register a single out. Bard may get the call soon.
