well...pretty much anyone who is actually the next in line to get a closer job.
if you take someone like branden donnelly...he's likely to help you a lot more than lyon. i understand that the reason people might be looking at lyon is because valverde or aquino are not guranteed to be able to hold on to their jobs and then lyon might emerge as the closer...but how long will that take? is lyon good enough to close? he had some good games with the sox, but i've seen him pitching for the jays...and argh!
why not take a chance on alfonseca, urbina or tim worrell? i think they are more likely to close a game this year than lyon.
Maybe because all the guys you mention..Donnelly,Urbina, Worrell..Are obvious choices... What Brandon Lyon is constitutes a "True Sleeper" not what many on the cafe consider sleeper's...
I've read names from, Carlos Zambrano to Bobby Abreu as "SLEEPERS" here on the cafe
...I'll agree to disgaree about the "Sleeper" status of that caliber of player...
(A sleeper is someone, the majority of owners "Sleep" on hence the name, "Sleeper"..Everyone knows the names you mentioned)
Just my 2 cents... Brandon Lyon "COULD" be a potential closer at some point this season....
And at least a decent source of Holds and garbage wins for leagues that utilize set-up men..
