2014-02-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)20 team keeper league. 5x5. Have Jansen and Holland as closers. Normally I would buy 7 starters but I'm thinking of buying 1 set up guy even though our league does not count holds. I'm looking for a guy that has 70 innings of awesome WHIP/ERA to offset a failed starter. Anyone who will sniff saves will be bought in my league. Who can I get that won't be getting saves but will be an awesome relief ace?
(seabass77 from Milwaukee)
Tyler Clippard, Ryan Cook, Pedro strop, Junichi Tazawa are my first four go to guys. Tyler Clippard is a bit scary but the man puts up Scot Shields level production. (Mauricio Rubio)
