DateQuestionAnswer
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)
2013-12-10 18:00:00 (link to chat)Dynasty league (no limits or costs): Matt Moore, Jameson Taillon, Ryan Cook, and picks first 2 rounds in prospect draft, for Taijuan Walker, Shelby Miller, Yordano Ventura, and Joakim Soria. I assume you'd take Walker side, but I am selling a bit low on Moore considering the potential should he find his command?
(Slevin from Brooklyn)
Hey Slevin:

Hmm. I have to think about this one which means that the offer is probably in the ballpark in both directions. A lot depends on what is available in your prospect draft and what you think you can land with those 2 picks. Even in dynasty leagues, I generally like taking the proven commodity over the uncertainty, so from that standpoint I like Matt Moore better than any of the other pitchers in the deal. However, I have to assume that there isn't anything wrong with Shelby Miller and he certainly put up enough innings last year to be considered a Major League asset as well. With that in mind, I like Taijuan Walker and Yordano Ventura better than Jameson Taillon in that deal, and Joakim Soria has a better chance of closing than Ryan Cook in 2014. Again, much depends on what those picks will net at the minor league auction. Since it's dynasty, I'm assuming those picks will get you players who are talented but very far away. If you think you're going to compete this year, you probably want the Walker package. (Mike Gianella)
2013-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Matt Moore, Ryan Cook, and David Robertson for Gerrit Cole and Craig Kimbrel. Fair trade?
(Jonah from Redwood)
It's not unfair, per se. But I'd take the Cole side of that deal every day of the week and twice on Sunday. (Bret Sayre)
2013-09-12 18:00:00 (link to chat)Some non-closer this year that are good bets to earn 20+ saves next year are _____?
(Joanah from Redwood)
Hi Joanah.

No non-closer is ever a good bet to earn 20+ saves. If you had Kevin Gregg with 30 saves this year, raise your hand. Not so fast, every single one of you.

But if you're asking for names, I like Cody Allen in Cleveland, Ryan Cook in Oakland, and Trevor Rosenthal in St. Louis if he stays in the bullpen. All three are risks, but that's the nature of a question like this; these are all guesses at this point. I think the Indians will non-tender Perez, but maybe they sign him for $9-10 million. Grant Balfour probably leaves for free agency, but maybe he doesn't. Edward Mujica probably leaves, but maybe the Cardinals keep him or maybe Jason Motte is healthy and gets the role back. I used to shy away from the skills over roles thing, but now I believe it. If you grabbed Rosenthal in your fantasy league this year, you probably were very satisfied with the overall numbers (and especially the strikeouts) even though he never wound up closing. (Mike Gianella)
2013-09-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Looking for saves in 2014, how many of these guys are capable/likely to grab 20+ saves next season: Trevor Rosenthal, David Robertson, Cody Allen, Jake McGee, Brian Wilson, Luke Gregerson, Pedro Strop, Drew Storen, Ryan Cook, Carlos Martinez, Vic Black, Joakim Soria, Neftali Feliz, Steve Delebar, Kelvin Herrera, Carter Capps, and/or AJ Ramos?
(J-Qwellin from Deplorable Future Leaders of America Club)
J-QWELLIN!!!! Interestingly enough, I'm working on such a piece re: 2014 closers. From your group, I'd go Rosy & D-Rob, but honestly any of them have the capability. I know that's a little copout-y, but that's the nature of the beast with relievers. (Paul Sporer)
2013-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wasn't it Heraclitus who said that a chat host can never truly answer the same question twice. That said, what are your thoughts on Ryan Cook (deep AL keeper)?
(Carlester from The Present)
Solid enough reliever who is a decent bet for next-in-line work. I'd definitely hang onto him in that format. (Paul Sporer)
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)The closer carousel has already begun. What current closers should be looking over their shoulders and who will they see?
(LoyalRoyal from Kansas)
I'll give you three names:

Most likely: Brett Myers I think he'll be traded and that Fernando Rodriguez or Wilton Lopez take over.

Very likely: Grant Balfour Again, traded. Ryan Cook is the next in line.

The wild card: Fernando Rodney. Kyle Farnsworth could be back in early-to-mid June. Maybe the Rays just slide Farnsworth into the eighth inning spot but I wouldn't be too surprised if they gave Farnsworth the job back and let Rodney go into a set-up role. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Following up on Ryan Cook: what will he be when his hits allowed normalize? Three in 14 2/3 innings isn't sustainable.
(Jim from Mexico City)
You're right about the hit rate-he's not going to yield three hits for every 14-2/3 innings pitched. Still, he's a big guy with good arm strength and a sold slider. He might not be the ideal shutdown closer, but I think he's next in line for Oakland and could hold the job down until a better option shows up. (R.J. Anderson)
