DateQuestionAnswer
2016-08-01 16:00:00 (link to chat)I hate closers. Just lost Davis in a 16 team league. Have Edwin Diaz helping me with ratios but no saves yet. Took a flyer before deadline and picked up both Ryan Dull & Edubray Ramos but seems neither their respective clubs made deals. Should I move on from these 2 & look to add Hudson or Axford. Need a closer for the home stretch for saves. Your thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks
(Jerry from Earth)
Jake Barrett and not Hudson is going to close in Arizona and John Axford isn't any closer to the job. Hang on to Edwin Diaz and hope that Steve Cishek blows another save or two this week. (Mike Gianella)
2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)Steve Cishek: buy or sell?
(gerrybraun from sandiego)
Hold. He should be OK, and I haven't heard anyone suggest he's at risk. (Mike Gianella)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Any good non-closer RP that should be targeted in NL only for $1?
(craneplace from The Present)
In NL-only for $1 you really could grab a number of quality middle relievers and be happy. If you're asking from a saves perspective, I like Vic Black on the Mets, Mark Melancon on the Pirates and Pedro Strop on the Cubs. I don't know if any of those guys will go for $1, but they could get saves. A.J. Ramos is another guy who could be a "post-hype" saves guy and pick up a few or get the job if Steve Cishek gets traded or is ineffective. (Mike Gianella)
