2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)What late season call ups might go from unknown to on the map this post season (like K-Rod in 2002)?
(mdotmorris22 from Minnesota)
This is a good one with which to kick off.

There are a handful of relievers who I think could jump onto the radar in the same way. If the NL wild-card game is tight, both Hunter Strickland (SFG) and John Holdzkom (PIT) could play a big role, with the fact that the Pirates designated Strickland for assignment to make room for Jonathan Sanchez providing a humorous twist. Holdzkom is certainly the one who's jumped out of nowhere, from Indy ball earlier this year to a high-leverage role in a playoff bullpen. (Daniel Rathman)
2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a 20 team dynasty league. We're allowed to protect 20 players from our 25 man roster yearly. I can protect only two of the following relievers, Brad Ziegler, Shae Simmons, Kevin Quackenbush, John Holdzkom, Hunter Strickland, Jeremy Affeldt, and RJ Alvarez. Which should I keep for next year?
(John from MD)
Again, I'd recommend shooting this one at our fantasy guys in their next chats, but I'd go with Quackenbush and Strickland. (Daniel Rathman)
