  1. I picked up Gutierrez over the weekend. Droped Craig Gentry. Also I have been streaming pitchers who are facing Houston. So far, so good. 3 wins very low ERA and WHIP, and about 18 SO. I am continuing tonight with another Seattle pitcher. Cant remember his name.

    I know it wont last forever but I have the lead in wins, ERA, WHIP and SO.

    Any advice on RPs who will be closing soon. I have F. Rodney TB, E. Ferreri LAA, and J Veras Hou. 1 save between them. I would like to add a fourth and then sit back and let the season happen.


    • I had Henderson and Fujikawa since day 1 in anticipation of their eminent domain over the closer gig. If either of them happen to be available, which I doubt now that they’ve assumed the role, they’d be nice grabs. Looking on down the road, Kenley Jansen and Sergio Santos should get a crack at the closer gig at some point. Delabar might be the sneaky pick in Toronto. I have Valverde stashed in a couple deep leagues, as a strong showing in the minors could cadipolt him into the role. Although they probably wouldn’t want to go into the playoffs with him there, so be careful with him. Some think Ryan Cook is next in line in Oakland, but my money is on Doolittle. He doesn’t have much other than a beefy fastball, and he’s a lefty, but his brief history shows he can get batters out no matter what side of the plate they are on. And in fantasy, I’d rather have the guy who’s going to whiff 11 or 12 batters per 9.


      • Totally agree with Doolittle as we picked him as a sleeper before the season began. Check out the article we posted.
        If he can be stashed we recommend that you do so. A rifle for an arm!!


  2. What about Gattis in deeper leagues? Frustrated fans are already calling for him to keep getting AB once McCann gets back. The homer tonight gives him s delicious stat line to begin the year. He’s someone if be really excited about if he had a line on steady ABs, but I just think it’s right place, wrong time for the power guru. They seem to be giving him ample playing time since Freddie went down – at the clean up spot nonetheless. Is there any chance they try him out at 1st?
