Wickman or Dempster? Who's the better closer?

Postby AI8818 » Sat Feb 19, 2005 4:26 pm

Whiich of these closers will perform the best in 2005. The league Im in is a 5x5, H2H (if it helps). Which of them will all-around have a solid season without a chance of them losing the job. THANKS! ;-D

Wickman by a long shot at least now. Dempster has no prior closing experience, which Wickman has plenty of. Dempster might be able to shine there but it's a risky pick. Also, his leash is shorter (could be a committe sooner than later).
Can't worry about tomorrow's pain tonight.

i think you meant to ask...who will perform this year, right? :-D

wickman is definitely the way to go. dempster is too big of a question mark. on the other hand he's canadian and we all saw what they can do when moved from the starting rotation to the closer role... :-b

seriously. take wickman. the tribe has a good ofense, in a weak division and their bullpen, which was a major problem last year, has got a lot better.
