Villafuerte and Looper

Postby Rapps5 » Tue Mar 18, 2003 3:25 pm

Whats the story with these two guys? Will they both start the year as closers? Which one of them is better in a head to head league, where middle-relievers are worthless, only saves and wins help you a lot. I'd appreciate any help here. Thanks.

Villa will close unless the Padres trade for Jones or Anderson or Rodreguez. It's still up in the air, but I stashed Villa on my roster becuase I like the way he looks.

Wow. Gay jokes and a love for fantasy baseball. I'm surprised you have the time to come in here and answer questions. You know, because of your busy love life. Keep em' coming, Casanova.

I'm just kidding. I realized as soon as I posted it that it was an awkward sentence. But you know what I mean. The kid can throw.

Cabrera, Hall, Looper are all expendable IMO.

I don't usually keep a back-up C and SS. I'll just grab one on waivers to fiull in to make up for games missed. You have 2 1/2 good closers, so Looper is expendable.

I dont know why Looper is treated so badly. He was 13/13 after June 1st last year. Stewart or Villafuerte are your worst guys.
