With closers running low, I drafted Armando in the 14th round of my 5x5 11 team rotisserie league and got bashed for taking him... personally i still have no regrets... the guy may have the best mentalily for a closer but in the fantasy world, he delivers solids numbers... what are your predictions and feelings on Armando in 04?
That's astounding. In a 12 team league he shouldn't last past round 10 in most drafts. (wait, now that I think about it, that translates to round 11-12 in an 11 team draft. Still, great pick in the 14th round!) People too often confuse a player's real baseball utility with their fantasy utility. Good job taking advantage of that bias.
He throws a few too many walks to be in the upper echelon, but has a great K/IP ratio - something that I always look for in closers. He'll do fine in FLO - though you may want to sit him when he visits Shea
