Now, I'm a poor little Aussie. I have one great RP in Rivera, but next is some guy Mike williams. He had 22 saves and 6 wins last year and is the only other guy on my team to record a save last year.

Do I stick with him or try to pick up a dark horse? Any help would be good.......

There are some rotisserie people that think picking up middle relievers are a hot thing, since they can get you wins and perhaps eat up innings.

If Mike Williams is still in Houston (I've not done all my fantasy research yet), he'll be a set-up man for Wagner.

I would try for someone else.

If you're looking for a middle reliever who can eat up appearances and innings, assuming he comes back healthy look at Kelly Wunsch of the White Sox. I believe he had the most appearances of anyone in the AL in 2000.

here's my darkhorse: kyle farnsworth

he's a middle reliever on the cubbies and throws roughly 250 mph. who knows how long tom gordon will be out for and jeff shaw has already declined an invitation. i'm not sure what other relievers they have, but if given the chance, i think farnsworth could do pretty well.
also, john rocker is on the rangers and they'll probably give him every chance to become their closer. other than that, there's always going to be some middle of the road closer who comes out of the woodworks and gets 25 saves, just look at the brewers.

Nope, Williams is back in Pittsburgh, and will be their closer once again. Look for Williams to have about the same stats as last year. Wheather that is good enough for your team is for you to decide.

Thanks guys.

I ended up dumping a starter and picking up Steve Kline since appearances count in my league. Now I have Rivera, Kline and Williams as my RPs.
Starters aren't too strong with Al Leiter, Ben Sheets, Randy Wolf, Terry Adams, Shane Reynolds and Carlos Hernandez. All between 10 and 14 wins and no one better than 152Ks.

Farnesworth was taken and Wunsch is a bit of a punt for me to go with. Still if I'm going crap I'm gunna blame you guys anyway.

Most of my knowledge of baseball players comes from one season of rotisserie last year. I only ranked about 35 guys and just went with the default guys from there and couldn't actually make the live draft.

You should check out the Closer by Committee situations in LA and Baltimore. Paul Quantrill looks to be getting most of the save opps in LA after a horrible spring by Matt Herges, and Eric Gagne could emerge as the closer. Balimore has three guys that will be closing. Willis Roberts, Buddy Groom, and Jorge Julio. All three have had tremendous springs, but the two with the most potential are Roberts and Julio. Roberts saved a couple last year, while Julio is a young fireballer that is on the way up. You could also look at Braden Looper from Florida if the Fish trade Antonio Alfonseca. Also, check out Jimenez from Colorado, he missed part of last season, and is a solid closer, even though his ERA is a little high,

Thanks Bacon. About half those guys are taken, but Looper and Julio are still out there, hopefully they'll still be around if I wait and see a bit longer.
I'm trying to get a trade done to pick up John Rocker and Kerry Wood, but I don't think the other guy will wear losing Wood. I've put Klesko up against it, but I'm not sure he's gunna go for it. Or am I mad and he's gunna make a chump outta me?

Am I the only one who's wanted to see a Kool-Aid Man vs Macho Man match? The dueling "Oh Yeahs!" would be awesome. Might as throw in Duff Man for the triple threat.

Merc, if you have Rivera and Mike Williams, I think you'll do fine from the closer spot. Williams put up nearly all of those 22 saves while he was with Pittsburg. While the save opps won't come all that often with the Pirates, I'd pencil him in for 30-35. Plus, Rocker isn't the definate closer yet in Texas, they brought him in as a setup man and insurance for Jeff Zimmerman. But, as a Cubs fan, I must tell you, get Wood, he's gonna be awesome this year.

Jim "The King" Leyritz was arrested Friday (sports.yahoo.com) for a DUI involving a fatality. I always considered it high comedy how he gave himself that nickname. If Jimmy Leyritz was an ice-cream flavor, he'd be pralines and dick.
