Time to look at Riske again?

Postby harmonjh » Tue Apr 27, 2004 9:27 am

Just thought about looking at Riske again, and saw that he is 2 for his last 2 in save opportunities with 0 ER and 2K 1BB and 0 Hits. Maybe since he got the first save under his belt, he's ready for the season. Any current Riske owners out there? (I dropped him a week or so ago) :-?

He alone cost me a win when i had him, so no matter what I wont be getting him. His blown saves got me negative points for the week and IF he had converted just one of them, I'd have won. Instead im 1-2

Yeah I have him in a couple and have him in the starting lineup. He hasn't been in a game in a few days, he'll probably pitch tonight, save opp or not.

I drafted him and I'm holding on to him. I think he has enough value as the potential closer to have him on your roster if you have the space.

I think that too. I'm going to keep watching him. Everyone else in my league won't think twice about looking for him again, unless he really starts to heat up.

Have you ever heard of the concept of a sunk cost? That is absolutely irrational, would you refuse to have Mussina on your because he got bombed his first two times out?

Oddly enough someone in one of my smaller leagues did drop Moose. I have waiver priority 12 so no chance but when I asked him why in the world he did that he said and I quote, "so I could pick up David Delucci"

Nice goin guy. You moron. And the kicker is he's a Yankee fan from Staten Island. :-t :-P :~( :-t :-P :~(

I have him & my bullpen is thin as hell, He is 2 for his last 2, but in a save situation on sunday they elected to let Westbrook go for the CG . I have to keep him as I am in a deep, competitve, league with no onr out there on waivers
