Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Is he worth taking a flyer on?. I missed his good outing today. How long is Carpenter out, and if he was that good today, maybe he would replace Westbrook. I chose to pick up Rodney and Santiago today to round out my pen and did not add Lynn.
sounds like we're on the same boat....
I had Santos, Thornton, Henry Rodriguez, Balfour, Farnsworth, and Bard.....
Santos blows his first save, but I'm not panicking over one game
Thornton loses the race to Santiago
Rodriguez is sharing save with Lidge, whom I had before committee was announced...
Farnsworth, who is the reason behind the whole mess in in Tampa... I pray his comes back soon and regains the 9th
Bard was stated as being in the Red Sox rotation, but considering the mess of a bullpen they have, I have a feeling they may put him back as a relief pitcher...
Just dropped Thornton for Lynn and my F5 key is getting worn out refreshing player news
I have Lynn on my watch list. I won't consider him worthy of a roster spot until he can prove that he can put together consecutive solid starts and show some consistency. Inconsistent starting pitching can kill a fantasy team.
If you have a roster slot that you're looking to fill and don't have to drop anyone, it's worth snagging Lynn to stash him on your bench, but there may be other players that are more worthy of your roster slot.... I'm a fan of Hochever or Samarzija if they're available ahead of Lynn.

thanks for the help, I too am skeptical of Lynn after one start. He is a decent middle man, but I always thought he had a good fastball and his secondary pitches were just average. I have 4 closers/Set up men instead of three because I dont trust any of them. I would have to drop one of them to pick up Lynn.
just grabbed Lynn myself. huge guy, former first-round draft pick, good K rate. negative is that he only pitched 10 innings as a starter last year.
carpenter could be out for a long time.
rays closer is still by committee, rodney isn't a sure thing.
