Lost a lot with Benitez and Schilling, Any suggestions?

Postby r8rferg » Thu May 05, 2005 3:19 pm

My team is hurting since I lost Benitez and Schilling who I traded to for right before both got hurt. Any suggestions on how to improve? I was thinking of trading A. Jones for a so-so closer. Thanks for the input. Leave a link. 13 Team 5x5 Rottiserie League. Currently in 10th place.

You maybe able to trade a.jones for a closer in the league of a BJ Ryan or lower. I would assume you could get Turnbow or Lyon, both good but have job that could be lost with a couple of bad outings. I would say the trade would be good for you since you have Burnitz or Lane to take Jones' spot in the lineup. I would go for a guy who may not be a stud but gets many opportunities such as Lyon.

turnbow available??

if not i would just sit and wait, thats what i am going to do...

wait for another turnbow to come on the waiver wire, closers are so inconsistent with there performance and healthy right now, the last thing u want to do is get a stud closer and totally regret it...
how did colon win the cy young??

Very solid team overall -- even with the injuries. I think you have the right idea trying to trade for a closer. You might want to package Bedard with Jones to get a top closer if someone in your league has jumped full-tilt onto the Bedard bandwagon.
