Riske sucks

Postby BostonBK7 » Thu Apr 15, 2004 9:37 pm

I think its time to drop him. Luckily I haven't been playing him the last couple of games and didn't have to suffer the consequence; I dont see how he's gonna be a good closer this year.

Same, no RP with over 1 save on the FA market. Don't know what to do with him.

Think he's going to be moved out of the closer's job? WHo's next in line Betancourt?

After tonights mess, Riske has this to show for his work.



Date IP R H ER HR BB ERA WHIP

4/6 1.1 2 2 2 1 0
4/10 .2 3 4 3 0 1
4/12 1.0 1 2 1 0 1
4/15 1.0 1 2 1 1 2

Total 4.0 7 10 7 2 4 15.75 3.50

Think it's time to drop him. I think he is a short timer as closer

Riske and his wife had a baby about a week ago and the baby is having some health problems. I know it's just an excuse, but this could be why he isn't pitching well.

Really, Hyde? Hope the baby turns out okay. It could definitely be a reason for him to be pitching badly (not to say that he won't lose his closer role, because I think he's about to get the hook). But, that kind of stuff is more important than pitching in a baseball game. I think he's got enough courage to go out there and pitch despite the personal problems.

Take a flyer on J Ricon

Postby titanut » Thu Apr 15, 2004 10:23 pm

I also had Riske on the bench, if you want to take a flyer on a
possible closer, look at J Ricon with the Twins, Nathan has sucked.
One of the "experts" on Rotoworld mentioned Ricon as a possible
closer. Tonight I dropped Riske and grabbed Ricon, what the hell,
closers are non existent, worth a shot.
