What the F!"/$% is this?

Wagner is not suppose to be the new closer there?

Miley said that he would 'play the matchups and hope a guy runs with it'. That's just bizarre...Wagner's been widely assumed to be the next closer after Graves for a few years now. I'm flat-out surprised.

On a side note, Atl looks like they're not going with Bernero either (he's in right now in another non-save situation with his team up 7-4) so those of you who dropped Bernero for Wagner didn't lose anything.

From Rotoworld:

David Weathers - R - Reds


David Weathers was the choice to close for the Reds tonight, and he retired Carlos Baerga, Brian Schneider and Gary Bennett to finish off the Nationals.
Manager Dave Miley says it's closer-by-committee with Danny Graves gone. The Reds' official site agrees that Wagner is the heavy favorite for saves, but since Weathers got the job done tonight, maybe he'll remain the choice. At this point in his career, Weathers is barely an average reliever. He's probably worth picking up in NL-only leagues now, but don't expect much.


My comment: Ridiculous
