Klob or Benitez

Postby nimrods » Fri Mar 12, 2004 2:51 pm

Which one will be more successful this year. IMO Klob has better stuff but Benitez plays on a better team. I would like to drop one in order to pick up contreras

Easy choice. Benitez. I don't think Kolb has better stuff than Benitez anyway.

Benitez, no question..He's got a track record, he's got better stuff, he's on a better team, he's got a better first name, etc.

He's vastly underrated.

never heard of Klob but you might want to stay away, he could get Klobbered.

p.s. I though you just mistyped his name in the title, but then I saw you misspelled his name in your post as well...

It's Kolb!!!

And yeah, Benitez is your man.

Benitez is under-rated. If he puts last year's troubles behind him he could turn the big 5 into the big 6.

Agreed... Benitez has nasty stuff and if he can just get out of the spotlight and do his thing, he should be MONEY!

Well, the guy broke my heart a few thousand times. He implodes in every single big game. I don't like him personally.

But if you want to win, he's the better choice. Over the last few years, he's been a top 3-4 closer year in and year out. He closes out tons of games that don't matter without a problem. The stats say that he's a top closer - popular opinion remembers the blow-ups. That's why he's underrated.
