Per ESPN.

Who's closing in Washington now? Hanrahan? Rivera?

I don't see any of the following worth while.

I agree since Rauch only had 5 saves since May 31st and only one since June 28th, but even a handful of SV can be helpful.

Ayala seemed to be the main setup guy, but he hasn't been very good this year...a guy in my league picked up Hanrahan yesterday...thoughts?

tons of unproven relievers in that Washington bullpen and the assumed frontrunner (Ayala) is awful; the whole situation just screams nightmare to me right now.

Hanrahan isn't a bad pick if you can afford it and have the space/need for it, but who what Acta will do? :-?

I just picked up Hanrahan. Not because I think he'll be the guy, but it will keep the other managers in check while I wait to see what really goes down. I don't think anyone is going to pick up Colome or Ayala until their absolutely certain one of them will be the guy. I probably wouldn't even go near the Was situation, though, if it weren't for the fact that RP are the only weakness on my team.

I had a couple bench spots to waste so I picked up Hanrahan and Rivera. I don't think I want Ayala even if he is the closer.

The only league where I care about this is also a limited moves league and I've squandered enough moves on potential closers already, but it will be interesting to see who becomes the WASH closer

Hanranhan has SP/RP in Yahoo so that'd be a bonus if he ends up being the guy.
