Scott Downs or Brian Fuentes? WHIR ALWAYS

Postby ATLbraves » Tue May 15, 2012 4:02 pm

I need a closer until Street comes back. I grabbed Fuentes originally, but just saw that Scott Downs and Frieri were also available.

So who should I own, Brian Fuentes, Ernesto Frieri or Scott Downs?


Logical choice is Scott Downs imo, since he is the current closer for a better team. But I just wanted to check.

At this point I would have to say Fuentes. I just think its only a matter of time before they give the closer role to Frieri...and if they dont do that then you have to think they give it back to Walden. In my mind there is just no way Downs keeps this long term. I think you will get quite a few more saves out of Fuentes.

I agree with Nikki. While Downs pitches for the better team (although maybe the Angels don't figure it out this year), I also believe that eventually Walden will regain the closer role with the Halos. I'd go with Fuentes.

Help with mine?

Fuentes

I think Frieri earns that last save if a lefty wasn't at the plate. I own Downs but am just waiting to drop him for Frieri...

I've seen Fuentes pitch and I don't give him long before Balfour get's his job back or Cook gets a shot. I do Downs in this one since Frieri has been questionable between the ears.

Help here...

I have to agree on Fuentes for all reasons as above, hate to sound like a parrot, but thanks for the help on mine

Fuentes. It seems Downs had only a brief window there.
