Closers - How Many is Enough?

Postby tmyanks24 » Sat Apr 03, 2004 6:00 pm

I have Aquilino Lopez, Arthur Rhodes, and Armando Benitez. Do I have enough stoppers for a 12-team H2H league? If not, is it absolutely necessary that I go out and get some more, or can I at least see how things go?

If there are decent available closers out there, get more. I'd suggest Herges or Mesa. Rhodes and Benitez are pretty good, don't count on Lopez for anything. With those two you really shouldn't expect to come up with a win in SAVES other than on a rare, flukish week.

Yeah I think you probably need another closer, but the best thing to do is look at all the other teams in the league and see how many closers they have, if half have 4 closers and half have 1 or 2, then just stick with what you have because adding a closer most likely won't pick you up a lot of wins, and at the same time will probably hurt your ratios.
