Slow Thursday so far, so how's your team doing? What players have flamed out for you? Who's been a positive surprise? Have you been affected by the craziness of the closers this year?
For me, Heath Bell has been a huge disappointment. He was the first closer I drafted and, well, you know the story. I've seen 100% turnover in my closers. I drafted Bell, Andrew Bailey, Huston Street, and Addison Reed (he seemed like the frontrunner coming out of spring training). I now have Aceves, Cishek, Andrew Cashner, and Aroldis Chapman. So, not too great.
I've been pleasantly surprised with Jarrod Parker, though. He was somebody I picked up on a whim, and he's been great for the A's. They see him as their future ace, and while he hasn't pitched like one, he's been very good for a rookie. And he's only owned in 5.3% of ESPN leagues.
Feel free to ask any lineup or trade questions here. I know we've got some insightful folks around.
