  1. Yeah in our league you have to roster handcuffs well ahead of time to get a possible source of saves. Someone will grab Yates and hold him to see if Hand blows two-three more saves, the good ones will help your ratios anyways. I appreciate the info. Did anyone see Phillies bullpen and Neris today? Also Rodney time rn
  2. grab the popcorn if Jansen blows a save tonight lol
  3. Are we considering Neris droppable at this point? I know what Kapler said, but still
  4. This is a new and very improved Hunter Strickland. He has always had the velocity, the 'stuff' and mentality to be a closer but back then he could only throw a fastball. Krukow was saying tonight he has never seen Strickland throw 4 different pitches before without one of them being a fastball. He looks confident.
  5. Very good point, I still just can't see this lasting long. We would be putting Rodney in some absurd percentile of players to have success as old as he is. And he has been unreliable for so long as is
  6. Krod was 35, Rodney is 41. There is just no way in my mind
  7. In my case, I read a razzball article and was just under the impression from it that he had the closer job without any relevant competition, lol. Was their reliever rankings
  8. Krod was 35 when he lost the closer gig, Fernando Rodney is 41 (!)
  9. I agree with you and that's why I am considering Bradley a short term/fluid hold. I expect to drop him but the ratio's he could offer while Boxberger is just getting off the ground still make him a reasonable handcuff. Boxberger's servere injury issues, recent arm soreness along with him building up the strength to go back to back nights make me less than 100% confident in him, closer gigs are most in the air until he has really cemented himself. Otherwise I agree with you. I will be following Ramos, Dyson and CJ/Cisek very closely and sub one of them for Bradley asap. I think Melancon is dama
  10. I have Archie Bradley, since Box got the job I am holding Bradley for the time being. Box has had cronic injury issues and had arm soreness as recently as early March. I am now adding Addison Reed as my other handcuff. Fernando Rodney is 41 and has allowed 6 runs in 7 ip this spring. He does have a K per inning and only 3 BB's. I'm taking the chance on him blowing it very soon, let alone at some point relatively soon. I would go with Carl Edwards Jr because Morrow is the most injury prone player in baseball BUT I can not be 100% positive he would get save opps with Cisek around. I
  11. I don't have much confidence in Melancon to stay healthy, Dyson is one of the spec handcuffs I'll consider. I also believe there is close to no chance that Morrow stays healthy for a full season. If Cishek wasn't complicating the situation I would already be rostering Carl Edwards Jr (I'm not in a holds league) for some stat padding and a high upside potential saves source. Am also considering Reed as a spec handcuff b/c Rodney gonna Rodney. Ramos might be the one I actually go grab very soon with Familia's problems but sounds like a committee. If anyone is more knowledgeable about the Mets si
