2016-08-01 16:00:00 (link to chat)Who has more value going forward in a holds league: Papelbon or Shawn Kelley?
(Steve from Baltimore)
I'll guess Kelley, just because I think it's going to take a week or two for Papelbon to pitch some lower leverage innings and get back to where he was. Dusty Baker doesn't seem to trust him at the moment. (Mike Gianella)
2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)Who are some deeper high K/9 relievers that could provide value in a holds league?
(JT Smooth from Loveboat )
Shawn Kelley, Roberto Osuna, Antonio Bastardo, Zach Duke. (Mike Gianella)
