Pick up Reed?

Postby weareallkipnises » Fri May 11, 2012 6:29 pm

Addison Reed has been announced as the new closer in Chi town and Sale is going back to the rotation. I've been loving Reed so far this season, but had enough RPs as it is. Now that he's gonna be getting save opportunities, would you guys make the pick up? Or keep what I've got?

Last I saw was this
General manager Kenny Williams said Sale's (elbow) MRI came back "clean" Friday, and he will be the team's probably starter Saturday, Chuck Garfien of CSN Chicago reports.
Recommendation: Apparently Sale was upset about his move from the rotation to the closer role, and the club's brass has yielded to his preferences. However, a future flare-up in the elbow could have Sale back in the bullpen. The move to the rotation should knock Eric Stults to the 'pen, and Hector Santiago or the returning Jesse Crain should close.

Not much you have to drop. Seems like Ventura is going to be a headache this season.

I got this notification from ESPN today:

ESPN FLB - White Sox GM says LHP Chris Sale will go back into the rotation; P Addison Reed now the closer

I'm sick of Francisco's bs. Think it's an okay swap?

Sure, just keep in mind Ventura said 3 man committee

Does your league count holds?

I picked up Reed, but my league counts holds. The Ks, Whip and ERA don't hurt either. If you're doing it just for SVs then you might want to consider a different pickup.
