I would certainly rank Hoffman and Julio ahead of guys like Baez, Borowski, Cordero, and Nathan.

Hoffman is likely to be injured, and Julio is the worst closer in baseball. If he keeps his job, he'll have a terrible ERA/WHIP and don't think that won't affect your overall ERA/WHIP, because it will. Especially in H2H.
Are you basing this off of just last years stats? because two years ago Julio had very respectable numbers on a very poor Oriole team. In 67 Apperences, his ERA was at 1.99 and had a WHIP of 1.21. He only had 25 saves but thats becasue the O's went the final 2 months or so without giving him a Save Opp. So he has done well in the past. You can say it was his rookie year and he caught the league by surprise, or you can say last year was just a sophmore slump. If he can come close to the way he pitched 2 years ago he would be a top 10 closer on this Oriole team. I don't think he'll get that close to them, but still enough to warrent a top 15 pick among RP.LBJackal wrote:Julio is the worst closer in baseball.
