Drop Rizzo for Ziegler? WHIR

Postby 4thOF » Mon Aug 19, 2013 10:09 am

Hi this is my first post here.

I'm in a keeper league (details below) but I aint keeping Rizzo. He's been a black hole for a while now and I have the same kind of low avg, power hitting 1B in Trumbo (but he's way more productive). My standing in BA is pretty low, thanks in large part to these guys.

Anyway, Ziegler just hit waivers, I have the 4th waiver position, so it's likely I could get him. I have 4 closers but Melancon isn't closer for too much longer. We have a serious arms race with SV so having 4 for the last month might be necessary to even keep pace.

Rizzo was a fifth round pick up, which is pathetic I know.

Here's my team. Thanks!

If you really need closers in that league badly, I would add Ziegler. Since your not keeping Rizzo, and he has not been playing particularly well recently, it makes sense to make this move.
