Try and dump Urbina?

Postby Guest » Wed Mar 24, 2004 5:52 pm

I have a bunch a rag tag closers hoping that at least 2 stick. Riske, Herges, Nen, Urbina, and Ayala. I'd like to hold on to Riske providing the Indians don't sign Uggie. I'd also like to hold onto Herges/Nen for now. Between Ayala and Urbina, Urbina has much more value. Should I take the risk and trade him, assuming no one will sign him, or do you think he will be signed?

It is incomprehensible that a guy who makes his living firing fastballs would spend the entire winter firing guns and his mouth about how under appreciated he is.

I'm sure all the GMs took a little notice of the Indians comments about Urbina. At the very least the guy should have been throwing some this winter and probably should have been doing some conditioning as well.

I don't see many of them lining up to give him $4 mil + with his attitude. However, baseball is business and if one of those front office guys thinks Uggie can sell some tickets, they'll climb all over him.

I have him in a keeper league. If anyone in the league would give me someone respectible for him, I'd take it in a heartbeat!

Do... or do not. There is no try. Use the Force etc etc.

Dump Ayala, keep Urbina. He's more likely to get a job somewhere than Ayala, who may or may not fill in if/when Biddle falls.
