Postby pujolsisthebestin04 » Sun May 16, 2004 5:07 pm

This guys been a little shaky lately. Gave up a HR to Piazza today and almost blew a save yesterday. I'm getting a little worried with my great closers dotel,boroski, and looper. :-o

I really don't know what to do with Dotel, should I drop him, trade him low, or bench him? :~(

Maybe Clemens will beat him up and he'll have to go on the DL for a few weeks.

Looper's not getting many saves, but at least he hasn't given up an earned run all year and his WHIP's below 1.

I think you need to put a "beginner fantasy participant" tag next to your name! :-b

a) drop him - you're clearly joking

b) trade him - you won't get value for him right now

c) bench him - he came back out in the 10th and struck out the side. all closers (except Goggles) will have blown saves here and there, he will be fine.

This might sound crazy, but is it time to consider Lidge yet? How much longer do you think the Astros will stick with Dotel?

no it's definitely not crazy but I can't imagine jim(m)y yanks dotel from the closer role anytime soon, even if he continues to semi-struggle.

Lidge is a K machine and an excellent setup guy who could certainly be worth rostering, as he can be expected to vulture some W's and saves while helping with K's.

I don't know but with 34 K's in 21 innings era of 2.57 and a whip at exactly 1 he's putting considerable pressure on the man above him. I actually have him on 2 of my teams for his strikeout rate. He's a cheaper version of K-Rod right now.
