Mike Adams?

Postby illmatic » Tue Mar 01, 2005 12:17 am

Do we have any Brewers fans here? I'm in the 19th round of my 12 team draft and I'm looking to grab another closer. Adams and Dempster are the only ones left but both of them seem like they could easily lose the job. Could Ricky Bottalico take the job from Adams or is he almost a lock to close for the brew crew? Or should I just go for Dempster or Borowski instead? Thanks.

Adams is the closer out of the gate, and he was good last year. I think hes a good late round closer, and I'd rather have him over Dempster.

shock, where ever you got that info. they are whacked, melvin and yost talked to adams within minutes of trading kolb and asked him if he was ready and told him it was basically his job, yes that is before they signed bottalico, but they signed bottalico for the 8th inning not the ninth, adams is going into spring with the closer job his to lose

Everything out of the Milwaukee area so far is that Adams is the #1 guy with Lehr and Bottalico being possibilities if he falters. His numbers were good last year as a rookie, and I think he's a good sleeper RP pick.

Shock, pretty sure this is wrong. Heard the Brewers GM recently on MLB Radio say Adams was their man. ;-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Either way, as long as Borowski is healthy, as he says he is, no way Dempster is THE closer. He will get some chances, but likely mostly w bigger leads that won't qualify as a save.
