A's closer - Cook or Balfour? WHIR

Postby jeffro10 » Thu Aug 09, 2012 11:24 pm

Currently have Cook on my roster, but Balfour was just dropped. Should I make the switch or do you think Cook still has the job?

I switched to balfour in a league. Hes been pitching great the last month. Cook's bad games are adding up.

I just added Balfour in my league. Cook is still owned as well, but with all these bad appearances, I'd imagine a change is imminent.

When your manager doesnt fully endorse you I think its time to grab the next guy in line. I would add Balfour. Whether or not I would drop Cook. Its tough but I would lean towards yes if he is the only option you have to drop. When Balfour was yanked from the gig he wasnt doing as bad as Cook is now.

If saves are crucial for you, you have to make this switch before oakland officially makes the switch..which should be ANY MOMENT

I'd take Balfour. This is mostly based on hunch rather than numbers, but i just get a feeling that its Balfours time!

Go with Balfour. He has the closing experience that will give him the edge.
