What's the deal with J. Fields??? Is he anywhere close to ready?
I could see him closing by year's end if Morrow can't make it back to last year's (bullpen) form. I don't trust Aardsma, I think Fields could be a major league closer, I just don't know how far away from being ready he is...
Any thoughts from people who follow Seattle Minor league teams.
Besides Springer's bad outing yesterday, he's been pretty solid. Do y'all really think it's Wuertz or do you think any other Oak RP has a chance if Ziegler hits the DL (first swine flu case in MLB)? Oakland generally has an abundance of great RPs.
Now, I have to make a comment about this thread. Over the last two years, you guys have helped me win about $1500 in money leagues. I have been able to pick up closers throughout the season and parlay known closers for better bats. I know I don't make many contributions, but that's because I feel like there are several posters who just know more than me. I have seen the thread deteriorate over the last two years as more and more people are just posting BS. It used to be filled with useful knowledge from people whom either lived in the cities where these Closer Situations were discussed regularly on the radio, etc. or those who were actually at the games in question. I wish people chose my approach of, if you don't have anything of value to add, just keep your mouths shut. However, as that probably won't happen.
I now have a new approach...I only read the posts written by people I have come to trust (Havok, Yoda-even though they've had an argument or two, Omaha, and Aussie Dodger, etc...if I left you off it doesn't mean I don't trust you-there are just a lot of people to name). I propose that if you feel the need to argue, start an argument thread...heck it may become popular in itself.
I realize a lot of closer situations are mostly speculation, but come on guys, a lot of us come here for advice, not to just hear ourselves talk.
Think before you type...my rant is over.
As an afterthought, this is probably a post doing the very thing I am preaching against. However, I felt it needed to be said.
I will add a thank you to those who continue to post useful information, as it has made me a couple bucks over the years. I hope the idiots don't make you stop posting...if they do, and you choose to start a secret thread
Please tell me where it is.
