off the top of my head Tony Watson and Darren O'Day. (Mike Gianella)
2015-04-06 20:15:00 (link to chat)My league just changed to saves+(holds/2) instead of saves. (NL, 12tm, 3 keepers) Someone kept Tony Watson at $5. Good move based on holds and great era/whip? Or bad move on over-valuing holds?
(El-Biro from Sand dunes)
That seems ok to me. Not sure it's good or bad. Maybe a little expensive, assuming a standard $260 cap, but 12-team NL-Only is pretty deep. I'm fine with paying for the security, or at least as much as relievers can provide. There's an added bonus of his likely becoming the closer should something happen to Melancon, in which case it's a great move. More I think about it, the more I'm fine with it. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-04-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)6x6 Dynasty, pitching cats are: QS, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, K/BB. Which one of these relievers do you like the best (just trying to prop up ratios): Tony Watson Chris Withrow AJ Ramos Alex Torres Nick Vincent
(Tommy C from Illinois)
I really want to say Alex Torres here because I love him, but his BB will likely kill you in the ratio stat. Tony Watson would be my primary target here. (Mauricio Rubio)
