If you had Eddie...

Postby savvy_stu » Fri Jul 23, 2004 11:33 am

So, all this talk about Eddie getting moved has me a little worried. Every fantasy article about him says that he's on the way out, but... to whom? Contenders want him to setup - they say, but there are a few teams that could definately use him to close (Giants and Cubs)

Where is he going to end up?
Should I trade him before the Mariners do?

I'd stick with him, odds are that he would be traded to a team that will have him close rather than setup.
Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

If they do move him--and I think they will--who closes in Seattle? Shiggy has been horrible this year, and is Soriano going to be back at all this season?

In Seattle Hasegawa may get a chance despite their struggles, I mean they are doing so bad they don't even really need a closer.

As for the everyday man, he should be fine and I wouldn't worry about getting rid of him. I think he'll end up in San Fran.
