What an eventful first week in fantasy baseball! Not a great week for closers, as blown saves were the order of the week. Mariano Rivera, Sergio Santos, Jose Valverde and Heath Bell were among the big names to blow saves in the opening week.
Ok, let’s get to my week 1 recap. You may recall in my last article I stated that the short week and uncertainty in pitching rotations made it tough to set a lineup in weekly leagues. Due to this uncertainty, I picked up Jeff Samardzija off of waivers and dropped Ryan Raburn. It was a move I didn’t want to make, but it actually turned out well, as you will see below.
