Santiago Casilla or Brett Myers for Closer? Both Available!

Postby Strained Oblique » Tue Apr 17, 2012 10:49 pm

Who would you choose right now? Both are available in our 12-team league. I already have Santos, Guerra, Broxton, and Aceves, but obviously I don't feel great about any at this point except for Guerra. Who would you take as both on FA list for now!!!

Thanks and WHIR if you post link!

Have you tried to move a closer or two to someone that has a hurt closer? I would try to move one or two before picking up any more unless you have a very deep bench.

Of the 2 I go with Myers. We arent sure how SF end game is going to play out, even though Bochy said Castillo gets first crack, he might have a short leash.

Myers has a more secure job and the SP/RP elig is a little gravy.

Meyers has the most secure job. I'd try trading one of your current closers.

With the way closers are dropping like flies, I'd be really surprised if Myers was still on the Astros by the summer. Of course he'd probably go to a team that needed a closer, but his situation is a little more tenuous than it seems at first glance. I'd probably still go with him, though.

Id say casilla closes longer but you almost have to go myers because of the SP flexibility

Meyers for the eligibility IMO. ;-D You really should look into making a trade though. There's a huge amount of instability in the closer ranks right now, which means you should be able to find lots of worried managers willing to deal.
