Riske Really sucks...

Excuse me but Betancourt shouldn't be blamed at all. He came in with two runners on and a defense that gave up an error that could have put the game away. Yeah he gave up a double but he entered the game when Chicago was red-hot. I'd say grab this guy while you still can, Clevland is gonna be in some hariy games, and ballsy owners should grab this kid.

By the way what is the deal with the porno thing?

I didnt see the game but I have read that it was pretty windy (up to 33mph) and whilst that is no excuse it may be a reason for the poor performance.
I hope thats the case.. I have Riske too... :-S

Is now the time to dump Riske after his 3H 3ER in 1IP performance tonight?? I'm in a 10-team league.

Thoughts on grabbing K-Rod instead? I play in a weekly H2H where you need 25 Minimum IP/week.
(2SP,2RP,3P)

I have Foulke, Hoffman, Nathan as closers as well.

I appreciate the help.

Betancourt has pitched in 12 of the 21 games so far. That's on pace for 93 games. He'd pitched two innimgs the day before and was scheduled to have the day off until Riske imploded. He's a tough pitcher and I'm expecting him to take the closer role now at least until Jimenez gets back, and I think he'll keep it even then. I just grabbed him.
