Well, it's hard to directly rank closers and starters, so I will split them up:

Starters:
1. Foppert (inconsistent but on a good team, in a good pitchers park and gets plenty of Ks)
2. Tomko (horrible ERA and WHIP but run support is there so should be good option for wins only.)
3. Ashby (ERA and WHIP are not much better than Tomko's, he does have Dodger Stadium in his favor but nonexistant offense means few wins)
4. Brower (decent numbers, but is only being used as a spot starter, making him not really that valuable to you. Good as a pickup for his starts against lousy teams)
5. Heilman (Has really struggled, plus won't get more than a couple wins with this AAA team)

Relievers:
1. Kolb (Strikeout rate , ERA, WHIP decent, seems to be getting majority of save opps)
2. Fuentes (Great strikeout rate, with Speier imploding big time lately, might start getting more save opps)
4. Reitsma (Apparently will be getting the majority of save opps initially in Cincy; mediocre strikeout rate for a closer and way too many HR allowed)
5. DeJean (Might get his closers job back outright if everyone else continues to struggle. Weak K rate, and bad ratios make him not really worth much unless he does)
6. Wagner (Reds don't plan on putting him in pressure situations right away, and a rookie pitcher that isn't getting wins or saves is a risky proposition)

Fopperts ur best option for a starter...I wouldnt even conside the rest of them unless there was a favorable matchup.

For saves, look at Kolb and DeJean. Kolb seems to be getting the most opps. but watch the situation closely if u add kolb.

Reitsma's the next best option for a closer. hes already got two wins this week, used in extra innings, and in a key situation in the 8th inning. He looks like hes got the closers job for now

I should also point out that it is weekly transactions with no bench. If they are on your team they are starting. Real 5x5.
See thats what I was afraid of ... I need wins .. And Tomko or Foppert are my best options for wins. I have an 11 Point lead in saves and I have Smoltz. 2nd place has Gagne and Beck so the race is on. 3rd place in saves is a distant memory so I can only lose 1 point if I don't pickup a closer.

So I am stuck with either Tomko or Foppert and the crappy ratio. It is killing me right along side of Glavine and Lawrence. :-) Thanks JDH and R-tehst .. any others?

I am in a 12 team NL only keeper, with a staff similar to yours...(Smoltz, Maddux, Wolf, Peavy and Beckett)...In a season league, I would hang on to Tomko...but in a Keeper I would try to move Tomko for Foppert...I think he has a bigger future than Tomko does....

this was a keeper league but not anymore ... The usual last place owners stage a revolt .. LOL .. and it got voted out this year. So I am probably stuck with Tomko .. for the final two months.. That what I figured. Thanks Cubbie .
