Possible closers?

Postby Surfs up » Fri May 07, 2004 8:03 pm

Anybody going to take a flyer on Nate Field, Frasor and Mercir? I am going to try to get all three.What the hell. Worth a buck a piece to see what happens.
How about Ryan Madson? Think he has a shot soon of breaking the Phillies rotation?

Madson has a definite shot at beating out Myers for the #5 spot. Madson's stats are pretty sick so far.

As far as Mercir, I think thats a lost cause. Only reason he closed was because Rhodes pitched 39 or so pitches last game. I have no idea about the other two.

I picked up Frasnor for a day and then I waived him for John Thompson (when he cleared waivers). All signs point to Terry Adams being the closer, but if you see Frasnor pick up another save or see Adams struggling pick up Fransor if you are desperate.

Field I would keep my eye on too.

I'm not a big fan of picking up potential closers, but if you are the type that actively check game results then I would wait until you are given a real reason to pick these guys up.

FYI McDougal has looked awful and just blew the save. Those with an open spot may want to pick up Field.

Out of that list...Field might be worth a shot in the closer role....but don't expect much out of him... :-/

Madson on the other hand...is good as a MR....solid ratio numbers...a good number of wins...and a chance at moving in the SP role...he would be my choice... :-)

Field may get a legit shot the way the rest of the KC pen is going. Guys has an alarming HR ratio (not so far this year, though), but he also throws 95 and has a nice slider.

Agree that Madson is worth a grab, has a chance to be an okay pitcher. But will also be a candidate to wear down later. Needs to add some weight!! So he could be a great guy to trade if he gets off quickly after replacing Myers, which seems inevitable.

See other post on MacDougal...looks like Field will get his opportunity immediately. Can't tell from Pena's statement whether it will be a temporary or possibly permanent move.

Keep a sharp eye on Jose Jimenez in CLE. Just off the DL pitched his first game yesterday (did well). Remember. This guy had 41 S in COL two years ago -- and CLE is about out of options.
