League or H. Rodriguez? WHIR

Postby StateStreet » Fri Apr 20, 2012 10:49 am

I've got Brandon League, who had been 5 for 5 in save attempts until last night. I haven't been able to catch any of the Mariners' games on TV, so I haven't really been able to see how he's looked (although Yahoo tells me that he's looked shaky, despite the saves). I noticed that Henry Rodriguez is available in FA...do you think I'd be better off with Rodriguez, even though he's splitting time with Lidge?

The league is roto with standard scoring (W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP). My other RPs are Kimbrel, Betancourt, and Motte, with Storen on the DL.

Thanks for the advice.

League should have the job all year long and is a pretty good closer (he's not a Matt Capps type that will eventually hurt your ratios). Rodriguez likely will lose the job later when Storen comes back, even if he wrestles it away from the Lidge timeshare in the meantime.

I'd either stand pat or find someone else to drop. Closers are great trade pieces in most leagues.

League by a mile. Storen will have the job back as soon as he's healthy.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
