Hey Rhodes owners, are you sticking with Rhodes or are you gonna drop him?

Damn don't know. Affeldt is available in my league. I wish I knew if Affeldt is going to stay the closer.

Really the only closer left in my league is Frasor....I only have Worrell and Kolb as my other closers, but I still do pretty well every week in saves. I'm thinking about dropping Rhodes for a hitter or starter.

If your getting killed in saves I would say no to dropping him. He will get saves by default he is the only one they have.

stick with him for now, just hid ehim on the bench for a bit.
Until the A's say otherise Rhodes is the closer. You have nothing to gain by dropping him since his value is so low now.


If Affeldt is avilable in your leagues though I'd pick him up for sure.

I traded him for Damon 3 days ago...just in time to miss his 2 consecuative losses. ;-D

I think Affeldt will keep his job

I think Affeldt will continue as the closer barring an injury or major collapse. The Royals are pretty much out of it so they can afford to be patient with him. I have Rhodes and would trade him straight up for Affeldt if I could get him.

In the last 24 hours, I've decided 3 times to drop him for another starter. I've also decided 3 times to keep him. A.J. Burnett is coming back this week and I have Peavy and Beckett on the DL. Acevedo is also available in my leaugue. Ugh!!! I hate these decisions. Since you brought it up, what would you do? ;-) (Other closers are Nathan, Dotel and Hoffman)
