Where I am torn is whether to drop Casilla or hector Santiago. Any thoughts?

I picked up both Casilla and Romo once I found out Wilson was done for the year. But are we absolutely certain the gig is going to be Casilla's? Romo is a better pitcher, let's not forget. Casilla only got the nod during Wilson's injury issues last year because Romo was on the DL with elbow problems of his own.

That's a tough call. I think after the blown save last night I would drop Santiago. Whoever you drop I think it's a good move to drop one of your weaker RP for Duffy. you'll be competitive in saves every week with 3 closers.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

1). Ventura loves Santiago.

2). He currently is the closer.

3). Casilla is not currently a closer.


To sum up, drop the guy who is not getting the saves now. Don't get fancy with it and try to predict the future.

Thanks, everyone. I dropped Santiago Casilla since he is not sure thing to be "the man" in SF. Grabbed Duffy.

I wanna pick up Duffy too but don't know who to drop. I was thinking about either Latos, Clippard, or Saunders. Check out my sig for team details.

Yeah, I would drop Santiago. He really didn't have a lot of security in the first place.

Help please?

EDIT: Whoops, a bit late on that I guess haha.

I would drop Clippard or Saunders. Clippard is only really an asset in holds leagues, and I have heard he will remain the setup man regardless of the closer shuffle around him. Not to say lights out releivers aren't valuable (I have Chapman), but for every Clippard there is a Greg Holland, Sergio Romo, David Robinson, etc....
