Postby NaMelePana » Fri Apr 02, 2004 7:33 pm

i just moved lieber and garciaparra to the DL, i'm planning on picking up two pitchers off WW to see if they turn into something special, which two should I pick up?
D. Moss
J. Fogg
D. Oliver
J. Gonzalez
H. Ramirez
S. Reynolds
O. Perez
S. Estes (this year's Loaiza?)
Z. Day
K. Benson
A. Sele
C. Lee
C. Carpenter

any input is much appreciated

I'd get Juan Gone and Debbie does Odalis

Can't believe Juan wasn't at least drafted in the late rounds
:-?

Odalis gets the nod just by default because I'd wait a couple starts before considering Cliff Lee.

P.S. I'd spare the effort of keeping an eye on Shawn Estes

Good luck
;-D

that's Jeremi Gonzalez, not Juan Gone. Does anyone have a guess at how Kris Benson will do this year? He could be valuable if he gets traded

and no way Estes should ever see your roster

okay, new advice after the name clarification.

None of these guys really blow me away. Maybe Cliff because he had a high K/9IP ratio last year but I caught myself from drafting him when I noticed most his K's were against some crappy teams.

Why notget some closers/closers in waiting (valverde, marte, etc. they've gotta be out there). None of these guys in your FA pool are worth a roster spot yet until they show us something when the season gets under way.

most of the closers and even prospectus closers have been taken, here's who's left:

J. Valverde
M. De Jean
O. Villarreal (I know he's a starter, I missed him on the last list though)
F. Heredia
R. Lopez
S. Sullivan

buncha crap really, our WW have really been scourged

Dude, you're golden with Valverde!
;-D

yeah you're right about the rest of the guys don't impress.

You can still get a quality reliever that will give you great K/9IP ratio, WHIP and ERA.

ex.
Flash Gordon
Brad Lidge
K-Rod
Ryan Wagner
One of the closer by committe guys in Toronto
they can't all be taken :-o

yea...Ryan Wagner's the only one of those guys left, I've heard mixed things about him. I still have no idea what starter to take, one of the guys on WW should be decent I think
