Colorado has a road trip coming up, May 20-29. Pitt, ChC, Mil.

This is a good time to pick him up and play him.

You might want to take last year's Fuenets numbers with a grain of salt as he suffered from back problems all year. Note that in '03 he pitched pretty well.

Fuentes is less likely than most to fall victim to the Coors factor due to the fact he throws mostly fastballs.

While I never wanted any part of Tsao, I see Fuentes as a viable option for someone needing saves.

I'm in a points league where saves seem to be king, so I'm taking the gamble on both him and Walker. They'd have to really stink it up to hurt me.

If one is serviceable for any length of time I'll be very happy. If not, the search continues. It was the 2 situations I was trying to avoid, but I can't see not taking the chance based on the scoring system used.
