I have just put BJ Ryan on the disabled list. Al Reyes (Tampa Bay) and Jason Frasor (Toronto) are available as free agents, who should i pick up?

Although Al Reyes has pitched well and already has 4 saves this young fantasy season, the GNUru would go with Jason Frasor. Al Reyes is a 37-year old journeyman reliever playing on a team not likely to win many games. While he may be getting the job done now, once the Devil Rays fall out of contention they will likely want to bring along a young pitcher who will be a part of the team in the future. That player will likely be Brian Stokes.
Jason Frasor, on the other hand, is a much younger pitcher (29-years old), has some pretty good stuff, and plays on a team likely to produce more save situations than the Devil Rays. The Frasor situation reminds the GNUru of how Joe Nathan got his chance to shine when "Everyday Eddie" was so not everyday anymore. If Frasor turns out half as good as Nathan you'll have yourself a nice bargain!
