    Minnix wants “no part,” of the White Sox closer situation on mixed leagues? What sort of mixed leagues does he play in where the closer for a playoff-caliber team is not worth owning? Belisario recently had a string of 12-straight appearances in which he didn’t allow an earned run, and it’s not as though he’s never had success(2.54 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 69 Ks in 2012). Saves are saves and any reliever accumulating them is worth owning in 12-team mixed leagues. Anyone who says otherwise is a novice.

      Um… did you just say the White Sox are a playoff caliber team? Like the Chicago White Sox with a 4% chance of making the playoffs? The Mets have better odds of making the playoffs.

      Dude Chill out. No lindstrom. Belisario is getting roughed up. Webb can’t keep the walks down. Saves are only saves if they are converted

    Dudes, this is pushing it since it’s very specific but what about talking about Cosart for very deep/dynasty leagues? He was a decently hyped prospect and this season he’s doing so-so, any hope for him or cut bait?
