Relief pitching question (closer)

Postby alexhockey91 » Sat Apr 27, 2013 6:27 pm

in my league i can only have 2 relief pitchers
i drafted valverde but he was NA, so there was a spot to put him in the NA spot and pick up another RP.

i now have Putz with Arizona and Grilli with Pittsburgh. Now that Valverde has 2 strong appearances and Detroit is a strong team i want to take him off the NA spot but i need to drop Grilli or Putz in order to do so

Grilli is 9 for 9 in saves this year while Putz has 3 blown saves but still has i think 5, my instincts tell me Putz is generally a better pitcher but i dont know.

I dont know enough about baseball to know between Arizona and Pittsburgh who is the better team and will offer more Save opportunities
and saves in the long run.

Can you guys please help me and explain to me who i should drop and why?

Thanks

Putz and Grilli are both better pitchers than Valverde and will have as many or more save opps the rest of the year.
Valverde's K rate has plummeted the last few seasons as he has allowed more and more contact. Not good for a RP.

fwiw this kind of question would get more/better responses if you post it in the Draft/Keeper/Trade forum
