    Should I dump Thornton?

    Should I dump Matt Thornton? He's having a terrible start and there aren't very many closers out there available. Brian Fuentes (Oak), Sean Burnett (Was), Brandon League (Sea) are the only FA relievers. Alexi Ogando, Matt Harrison, and Chris Narveson are available as SP/RP.

    My current RP are Joakim Soria (KC), JJ Putz (Ari), J Walden (LAA), and M Thornton (CWS)

    • I never understand this question.

      Closers are "rentable". You do NOT own, lease, or invest in a closers. If a closer loses his gig then he loses his squatters rights to his position on your roster. If there are other closers available...grab them.

    • would like to see your lineup.. If you can afford to drop a player, get Sergio Santos! If Thornton loses the job, you have his built-in replacement already
