Drop Orvella for Burgos?

Postby yourgodsdice » Thu Mar 23, 2006 10:33 am

5 X 5 12 team Rotisserie:
C J. Lopez
1B L. Overbay
2B L. Castillo
3B M. Mora
SS J. Rollins
OF C. Crawford
OF M. Cabrera
OF T. Hunter
UTL J. Edmonds
BN C. Barmes
BN N. Johnson
BN D. Young

SP B. Sheets
SP F. Hernandez
RP B. Lidge
RP R. Dempster
P J. Beckett
P C. Sabathia
P C. Orvella
BN E. Bedard
BN F. Liriano

I'm trying to find one more Closer and I'm not sure Orvella is even going to be TB's closer at the beginning of this season. Should I pick up Burgos, knowing that he'll probably get replaced in about a month when McDougal comes back? It also might be good considering it could be trade bait for the owner who now has McDougal. Thoughts?

If you really want Burgos, drop Delmon Young for him. Unless you really feel like sitting on Young until after the all-star break, which is probaly the over-under on when he'll be called up.

I would say drop Young too, but you need power on your team. It's a tough call. I think TB's offense will keep them in games better than the Royals, so if Orvella closes, he will get more wins and saves than Burgos. Long term, Orvella is better. Short term, maybe not.
Please rate my team.
