No offense meant, but I wish I had managers like you in my league.
1st - thanks for the input, all and any is appreciated.
2nd - Soria still a top 5 closer? Have you even been paying attention to what Sorias been doing all year? His ERA is 5.57. Hes blown 4 saves out of only 11 chances. Velocity is down 2+ mph on fastball, so hes throwing the cutter all the time, and his control has been dying because of it. The Royals claim "no physical problem", but his delivery has been very inconsistent all year (which usually points towards a physical problem), and KC is def firmly entrenched in the SELLERS market when it comes to Soria, so of course they would hide something if he is hurt.
Look, Ive won several championships, and know what Im doing. So the whole "I wish you were in my league" is waters off this ducks back. If you notice our rosters consist of 1 single RP slot & 1 single P slot. So NO teams in our league carry 3 RPs, because its a waste of a 1 of only 5 bench slots (2 of which MUST be used to carry 4 SPs).
That said, the argument that carrying a 5th OF (Damon) is more of a waste of that final bench slot, than holding on to a maybe lost cause in Soria/3rd RP (after adding Salas), well then that is an argument I can see value in...so I say thanks for your input and am looking forward to others....
