In addition while Gange is great, the dodgers are gonna have problems scoring runs once beltre slumps back to uselessness. No way in the world I'd take Gange first round.
But you have to look at it from a points league perspective. In a head to head non points league you're right, I wouldn't draft Gagne at all...well I would if he fell low enough but to get him I would have to draft him higher than I am willing...but as I understand a points league, saves are ten points and wins are ten points...a great starter will get you 200 points, a good closer will get you 250 or 300 points, and gagne will get you like 520 points...how can you pass that up? Again...its only cuz its a points league.
