Not to be nosey, but if people don't like old players in your league, wouldn't want to not keep him and then pick him up late in the draft?

I meant I'm keeping him as in not trading him. The fact that they don't like old players would deter me from keeping him, not incent me to keep him. I worded it wrong. I word things not good.

I agree with this. I will not take a chance on him.

Good. You're not as dumb as some of the others here have told me that you were.

Look at that! You're closing in on 6k, aren't you?

Pre-congrats!

Because there is a shortage of players who could match his output as a relief pitcher but a lot of guys who can equal his output as a starter.


I was thinking more along those lines as well. As a closer you're getting arguably the third best player. As a starter, you don't really know what you're going to get. The uncertainty alone is enough to knock him down a couple rounds IMO. :-?


This is the same way I feel about him as a fantasy player.
