So here we are – last week of the regular season. Some head to head leagues have already had their championship, but many have not. And we all know that roto leagues are still going. The closer situation in MLB has been fairly stable since the All Star break. Minimal changes. But for those fighting for saves, there may be a few remote opportunities for you to get a little help if it’s not too late.
Here’s a look at the two situations which require attention:
Kansas City Royals – OK, so if you’re in a competitive league or at least one of 12 teams or more it’s highly doubtful that Wade Davis is available. But he’s certainly the guy to own with Greg Holland officially finished for the season. Depending on how hard the Royals want to push, there is a remote chance that Kelvin Herrera or even Ryan Madson gets a look if Davis is, for any reason, deemed unavailable. It’s a shot in the dark, but to paraphrase The Waterboy, it’s the last week of the season; can’t hold anything back.
Washington Nationals – They are a team in disarray and with the four-game suspension the Nats just hit Jonathan Papelbon with for fighting with Bryce Harper, their bullpen looks downright disgusting. Casey Janssen is the man in whom to put your trust for right now, but manager Matt Williams could very well go to a committee for this as well. If you’re desperate, then grab Janssen but don’t expect some miraculous four-save week from him.
Good luck to you all here in the final week. May you all find your way to the championship.
Now here’s the final look at the grid.
