Julio should be solid, but I'm not sold on Biddle. He's really not that good and appears better suited to long relief...... Biddle will get some saves, but he'll do while posting hard-to-swallow numbers in ERA, WHIP and K's.....

I agree...Julio should give you some decent numbers....but I wouldn't touch Biddle....he will kill you ERA and WHIP.... :-o

So, dumping Appier for Julio would be a good move? ;-D

Ged rid of Appier, even in the weak AL Central he won't do a lot. Julio is erratic, but should get a decent number of saves (as long as he keeps the closer's job).

I believe they will both do allright with saves but Biddle will kill your ERA and WHIP
There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I believe that Julio's job is more secure than Biddle's. The O's have some decent rp, but they don't really have closer stuff. Biddle on the other hand, is threatened by the emergence of Chad Cordero.
