Eddie Guardado?

Eddie's a lock for a WHIP under 1, and besides he closers that play for perennial winners, saves are a crapshoot. I like Eddie cause his WHIP is very low for where you'll get him in the draft.

Due to his preceived high injury risk, you should be able to get Guardado at great value. Given the contract he's just signed, I say he'll probably be fine and will post 35 plus saves with excellent ratios. However, to be on the safeside, if you do draft Eddie, also ensure you grab JJ Putz as well in the last round.

damn you! :-b

i wouldn't like him being my #1 closer either, but i'm betting on him being fine this year. you can always find closers during the season. don't gamble with him in an early round...but if he's available past the 12th, 13th...i'd say it's a good pick.

With the new studs on the corner, Sexson and Beltre, Seattle should win around 85-90 games and that should land Eddie at least a shot at 40 saves!

Good point. The Mariners are going to be much better offensively this year and don't overlook the the importance of a good set-up man. When Everyday Eddie was in Minnesota he had LaTroy Hawkins was his dominant set-up man. Last year the Mariners set-up man, Rafeal Soriano was injured I believe most of the year. This year with Soriano healthy much of the late inning pressure will be deverted to Rafeal instead of Eddie pitching 2 innings every time out.

Soriano is out until atleast July....but probably longer... :-/

Rototimes wrote:Ideally, Rafael Soriano will be recovered from his Tommy John surgery around the All-Star break, according to the Seattle Times. "It's usually 12 to 15 months to come back, but he might be able to do it in 11," trainer Rick Griffin said. "He could pitch in the majors in July, if it continues to go smoothly."
