I just traded Winn to get Dreifort for holds. And now one of my closers is back as a setup man :-[

Oh well, I have a lot of ground to make up in holds and I'm first in saves. This might actually be good news since Riske seems to be better when he doesn't have the closer role pressuring him... I hope :-o

Not that I think Wickman will be very effective though. He's been out so long and even way back when, he wasn't that great. He's really only had one good season anyway.

I'll disregard his current horrible stats since he's been out a while but I don't see him being a good closer at all.

That's Riske hitting the waiver wire. :-D

Hello Wickman. You can't be any worse than Riske, right? :-o

Lol. :-D

Fantastic news, I was just saved at the brink of executing a desperation trade for a closer (Casey $3 keeper for Kolb $15 keeper).

Hope you're right. I need him to get holds and solid K/9 a lot more than I need 4.8 ERA saves.

Screw Wickman, screw Riske, I'm done with Cleveland closers for this year. I'll go with Rafael Soriano instead. :-) That gives me five pitchers healthy and five on the DL. :-D

I'm with you guys. I'm in a holds league and Riske was dominant in that role before moving to closer and suddenly getting pounded (again). I'll give him a week or two to see if he gets back to low-ERA, high-K form. If not, well, I've got plenty of guys on a watch list.
