Former Met [and current D-Back] Jorge Julio, rumor has it, is being pursued by as many as three top-flight closer-challenged teams in MLB. He throws heat and will stabilize the Giants, Red Sox or Marlins. Since my roster in my Yahoo Fantasy Baseball League is short one able bodied pitcher with the chance to finish games and add precious saves to a category that is every bit as important as homers, I picked him up for our Sea Otter [America’s team].
This just might be the move that makes the season…Conversely someone might pick up John Maine, the current Mets starter I had to cut to make room for Julio. He’s a sleeper as well and this all can come back and bite me.
Is it any wonder that Billy Boy describes playing Fantasy Baseball as a job?
