Eddie Guardado?

Postby Purple Haze » Tue Feb 08, 2005 1:17 pm

What kind of year does everyone expect from Eddie Guardado? Is his shoulder sound, because the Mariners front office picked up his option, and have claimed he is there guy, and are in noway looking to acquire a closer.. So I need your expert opinions, please.. Thank you ;-D

I think he's a solid pick. Should approach 40 saves.

The good thing about him is you can get him late in your draft, the bad thing is the injury situation. If he slides past the 13th round in my draft I will take the risk, because the 35-40 save possibility is there with a healthy Guardado.

I just picked him as my #1 closer in the 11th round of a 16 team league as the 170th overall pick. I dont like him being my #1 closer, but he is a great value where I got him, IMO. I was forced into missing a couple closer runs, so thats why I only have him so far.

If he is healthy we all know what kind of closer he can be...but health is going to be a big issue for him this year...rehabing from a torn rotator cuff and not opting for surgery last year could prove to be the wrong move.... :-/

I look for JJ Putz and Shiggy to pick up a few of his saves along the way.... :-)

I don't like him at all this year, for the reason DHC enumerated. If he does blow out the shoulder, though, it'll be all Putz ... Shiggy looked like toast last summer.

(Now, if Soriano makes a miraculous return from Tommy John and the M's are utterly out of it after the break ...)

So the Mariners front office are just idiots, and handed out all that money, because he is hurt? that doesn't make any sense... :-?

It was in his contract that the team and him both had options for the 2005 season....the team opted not to pick up his contract...but he enacted the option....not a whole lot the front office could do... :-/

Ahhhhh..Very True..Did miss that part of the option.Thanks..still this is what the front ofice has to say about the situation:
Eddie Guardado is leaning toward exercising his player option to stay with the Mariners for $4.5 million in 2005.
"On a scale of 1-10 in terms of leaning toward coming back, right now I'm about a 7," Guardado said. Publically, the Mariners are saying they hope he does exercise the option. "We hope he picks up his option," GM Bill Bavasi said. "We explained everything, that we clearly want him to stay. We're shopping for starters and for run production, not for closers."

Guess they wouldn't publicly come out and dog the guy, unless they really just didn't like him as a person... So maybe this isn't such a vote of confidence, or is it? :-?

IIRC, if both the M's and Guardada picked up their options, he would have got 6 million, with only Guardado it's 4.5 about.
He's risky cause of the injury factor, but if healthy he should be a steal. He pitched really well last year until the last few weeks when we now know he was injured.
