Which middle reliever has the biggest upside for 2nd Half?

Gordon, Riske, Gregg?

Gordon might get a few saves if Rivera gets hurt.

Riske is looking good, and Jimenez is not.

Gregg got shelled the other night, but has been dominant.

Riske, Gordon, then Gregg.

Guess who picked up Gregg the day before he got shelled !+) .

I hold grudges, so he won't get any kind words from me. Plus Brendan Donnelly (sp?) is coming back in a week, so that should cut into all of Anaheim's relievers stats a little.

if he's available, go get Otsuka.
If a man dwells on the past, then he robs the present.
But if a man ignores the past, he may rob the future.

Gordon, Riske, Gregg

Gordon on the Yanks should give you more W opportunities.

Gregg will have less value when anaheim get their full bullpen back, with donnelly, k-rod, percival and shields.

Help me out when you can!

Another guy I picked up and has been quite good is Duchscerer of OAK, I have him Gregg and Quantril....they are like getting 1 Quality Start per week and maybe two wins....holds dont even count in my league and I am using four MR....its been an effective strategy so far.

Same here. Here's my pitching lineup on most days:

SP K. Gregg (has an SP designation in Yahoo)
SP Schilling, Halladay, Wolf, Radke, Burnett

RP Dotel
RP Foulke

P Lidge
P K-Rod
P Francisco Cordero

My league counts K/BB and total bases so this strategy works nicely in that system.
