2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)Who do think is next in line for saves in Seattle if they remove Fernando Rodney from closer? Seems like it would be Danny Farquhar, but I think you've said you like Yoervis Medina?
(Shawn from CT)
My educated guess is Farquhar, but yes I do like Medina as a sleeper candidate if Farquhar couldn't cut it. (Mike Gianella)
