Resident Fantasy Genius: Stockpiling Closers

24

Derek Carty

Just because you're out in your fantasy league doesn't mean you shouldn't go shopping for potential ninth-inning guys.

For the past four years, I’ve written an article at the end of each season discussing one of my favorite keeper league strategies: stashing potential closers. Today, I’m going to do the same, explaining the strategy and then trying to figure out which middle relievers are poised to step into the ninth-inning role.

The Strategy
All keeper leagues are different, but if you are in one where your leaguemates make a habit of keeping top closers, this strategy will be especially good for you. In these leagues, when auction day or draft day rolls around, the number of closers will be limited. Those who haven't kept a top closer will be bidding against each other for the leftovers, the second-tier closers. By default, their prices will rise, quite possibly above their raw value. This can trickle down the list of closers until Kevin Gregg is being auctioned for some crazy amount, like $18.

Prospectus Hit and Run: The Recurring Dodger Blues

4

Jay Jaffe

The controversy surrounding Andre Ethier's knee injury is just the latest in a line of punches taken in Dodgertown.

While the East Coast was dealing with the effects of Hurricane Irene over the weekend, Andre Ethier was making waves out in Los Angeles. In Sunday's Los Angeles Times, columnist T.J. Simers—a writer who is rarely far from controversy, even if means picking on someone smaller than him—caught up with the Dodgers’ right fielder, who suggested that the team is pushing him to play through a right knee injury that has eroded his production and will require off-season surgery. "If you're expecting me to do what I've done in the past, no, there's no possible way I can do that right now," he told Simers. "It's only going to get worse from this point… I keep getting put in the lineup, so what am I supposed to do?" In a season where the Dodgers have found new ways to be dysfunctional—not only with regards to owner Frank McCourt driving the team into bankruptcy, but also with general manager Ned Colletti's inept handling of the job of selling at the trade deadline—here they have called upon an old standby, pitting one of the team's best players against its management.

The Tigers and Indians go to extras in the first game of a pivotal dog-day series.

Jim Leyland and Manny Acta spent late Tuesday afternoon downplaying the significance of what was going to be both of their teams' biggest game of the season to this point.

Prospectus Hit and Run: The Ned Zone

32

Jay Jaffe

Jay looks at the Dodgers' deadline deals and wonders what they were thinking when they traded Travyon Robinson.

It's fair to say the Dodgers aren't accustomed to selling at the July 31 non-waiver trading deadline. The last time they were lousy enough to go into the deadline far enough removed from a playoff spot to be sellers was 19 years ago when they were en route to 99 losses: their worst season in 83 years. Not that they hadn't failed to recognize the need to do so last summer when they were seven games back in the NL West and 5 1/2 games back in the Wild Card; a more honest assessment of their chances would have had general manager Ned Colletti selling off parts in exchange for prospects. This week, the Dodgers finally got a chance to see Colletti doing just that, and the sum of his moves and non-moves was enough to make a fan pine for the days of Octavio Dotel.
