there is no way to know how Fujikawa would do right away, he's only had 3 games/2.1 IP in the majors.

I picked up Russell in a 16 team league, but I'm hoping to throw him into a trade package to sway it my way.

Holland pulled in the ninth in favor of Herrera after giving up 2 hits. Get to that waiver wire!

Cishek blew a save today after Fernandez put forth a terrific debut. Any thoughts if Cishek will have something to worry about? Who will take his spot and is it even worth visiting since its the Marlins?

Herrera is a great stash right now although he's likely gone in most competitive leagues. I believe Crow is next in line.

Cishek should have a long leash - he was decent last year once he got the job but also the next option is Rauch who is terrible. Rauch puts far too many balls in play to be a reliable closer so even if he gets the job you will hate owning him. That said if you are desperate and need someone to speculate on....

Drop Kenley Jansen for Jon Rauch??? WHIR!!! :-o :-o :-o

I am not sure how deep of a league I would have to be in to care who is next to the ERA slaughter for the sake of a handful of saves.

This is madness. J, nice call on Herrera.

Bad week to own Holland, Wilhelmsen and Putz. :(

Axford looked pretty bad in his perfect inning. Two balls hit to the warning track, one pitch thrown 5 feet over the hitters head etc. Big Jim Henderson actually looked really good in his one inning. Spoke too soon. Axford came back out in the 10th and gave up a hit and a HR.

And Axford looked very bad in the next inning. Henderson next in line (deep league pickup?)
