Riske sucks

I think he will get his first save tom. Why? because form now on he will be sitting on my bench until he can get a save!

I just can't afford to start him. He is killing my ERA and WHIP :-o

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.


I put J.C Romero ahead of him for next in line.

Nathan just pitched a scoreless 9th for the save. I think we'll be seeing more of him as the closer. Only bad spot really was that implosion the other night that caused his ERA to shoot up.

Naw, I think Rincon will get the job before Romero. Romero is a lefty specialist kinda, and not closer material I don't think. But at least he's looking more like his 2002 self, as opposed to last year's version. I said before the season that Rincon could get the job if Nathan sucks.......but he hasn't been THAT bad, so it's pretty safe for now. He's had 2 bad outings and 3 great outings. And it's only the first couple weeks. Looks like he'll be getting a lot of K's this year too, which doesn't surprise me.

I'll give my vote to Romero. Havent really gotten to see either of them pitch much this year. No web sight that I have read has announced that either. My basis is simply that an owner in one of my H-H money leagues who has the most successfull franchise starting our 4th year, just used his then #4 waiver priority to get him. He is the only owner to have finished above .500 the first 3 years, finished in the money the last 2 years, and is notorious for holding his waiver priority all season. He just picked up Romero and he is very knowledgeable about baseball. I've learned to trust his instincts. Use that for what its worth guys.
