I dropped Tsao in one league for Turnbow and Adams in another.

Tough call, as they're both obviously lower tier closers at this point. Tsao has more security, but has been injury prone. Turnbow is hardly entrenched at this point.

But this is all about speculation, and given my immense regard for Mike Maddux's abilities as a pitching coach, I think he may just turn Turnbow into a pretty solid closer, so I'd go that way.

One appearance by Turnbow and people are ready to jump off a cliff to grab this guy off of waivers. I would like to hear from Milwaukee to determine if Turbow will be the man or if it will be a committe save situation with Adams and Turnbow splitting.

I own Adams and to pick up Turnbow I would choose to drop Adams. I dont feel this is a very good move at this point as Turnbow is not guaranteed, however if I see another similar situation this week then I will act, hopefully not to late.

Just last seasin in AAA ball Turnbow had a horrid K/BB number at 56/42. :-o

I will pass (and unfortunately Cappellan is a starter at Nashville)


Yea but Adams has not exactly lit it up and Turnbow seems like the hotter hand.
