Donnelly vs. S.Shields

Postby speedy27 » Sun Feb 06, 2005 4:52 pm

Who would you rather have on your fantasy roster in these categories...K's, WHIP, ERA and Holds. As I'd like to add the top setup man for the Angels this season and i'm not too sure which one has the higher upside and which might be the emergency closer if K-Rod goes down!

Thanks ;-D

Donnelly should get you quite a few holds as he should be the setup man if healthy I think. :-?

Donnelly. He was the setup man by the end of last season and ended the season better than Shields. Shields came out strong in May but slowly fell back to earth over the course of the season. Donnelly was injured at the beginning of last season but came back and finished strong.

I'm pretty sure Shields is the holder .... refer to the "Holds rankings" thread.

I've had Shields for the past two years for $1. I'd take him over Donnelly although both are good relievers to own.
You don't have to like 'em to own 'em!!!!

I was just going by previous seasons. How would Shields have any appreciable advantage if he was the primary holder? :-?
