Why not... you've got a few closers. Niese is probably an add/drop guy though, and Hector is on shaky ground too. Seems like a lateral move.

I am in the same exact boat here. Both are FA's in my league and can't decide which one if at all to pick up. They certainly wont make or break your team, and both are very even. I really only dont like Niese because he is on the METS, but they seemed to get off to a nice start. Your RP's are solid, so I say why not go for Niese then. Both are gonna be WW picks all year.

I will take Niese here. You have enough RP and Niese is a quality SP.

SAGNOF!

I think Santiago holds more value. if he somehow holds on all year and get 30 SVs he is worth way more than the 9 wins mid 4's ERA and weak K's Niese gets you. Move Street or Francisco for a better SP...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

Not sure why you are a little down on Niese?
With a 8 K/9, he should net about 150 K's, sub 4 era, and wins are a crap shoot.
Santiago if he gets 25 saves, would indeed have more value.
But Reed and Thornton are there if he struggles at all.
