Closer Ranks/Perceptions

Postby dannahann » Fri Jun 25, 2004 10:35 am

With the Beltran trade and a couple of injuries, I've now struck gold three times. 3 difft setup men that were primarily on my team for ratios n K's have been promoted to closer in the past few weeks. (If you wanna play hunches I still have Gordon, Marte, and Otsuka rostered and waiting B-) )
Now, with so many new closers I wanted Cafe's take on how these guys stack up (5x5), both in what you see from them for the remainder of the season and in percieved trade value. Thanks

K-Rod (would be higher up, but I don't think he will be closing when Percival gets back)

the reason i put Baez and K Rod so high up is becsaue they are closers for now and i put Lidge kinda in the midle becasue he is good for everything but SV"s

I'm looking at the rest of the season:

Wagner
Graves
Baez
Hawkins- secure for now; a stud closer so far
Lidge- somewhat unproven in a closer role; but his K is too good
K-Rod- Percival's returning; but still has great ratio
Takustu- decent ratio
---------------------------------- I'd get anyone above.
Percival (Unless he bounces back big)
Jiminez (Will lose his job sooner or later)

This looks pretty much "right-on," I'm very doubtful that Percival will ever return as a dominant closer. I think I read somewhere that his problem is degenerative. That puts K-Rod in the hot seat. I'm banking on Takatsu being the White Sox closer the rest of the year and doing well in that position. Hawkins and Lidge both happened to be in the right place at the right time.
