mantei. he plays for a good team. looper may be close but dejean just doesnt get enough chances. i also heard dejean may be traded where he would no longer be the closer.

1. Looper. The Marlins are a small ball type club and Looper should see a lot of opportunities. Spooneybarger is a possible threat to Looper's job but Spooney has been complaining of being overworked recently.

2. DeJean. Solid closer, but should get less opportunities than Looper. Probably the safer choice though since he has absolutely no one threatening his job security however, at the same time that means more leads will get blown before it gets to the 9th.

3. Mantei. Always an injury question. It doesn't look like Arizona will contend this year and Gammons commented that it is very possible the DBacks will look to salary dump which may include trading Mantei.

To the guy who posted the second message, Arizona isn't anything special, and they're even further from anything special without Schilling, RJ, and BK. I agree with the guy above me...

1) Looper: He was nails last season when he got his job back, and Florida has a pretty good team overall.

2) DeJean: Barring a trade, and anyone in baseball could be traded at any time, DeJean is probably yhe most reliable of the three. Though he won't get the most chances, he'll convert when the opportunity arises.

3) Mantei: He always could strike guys out but never really posted good ERA and WHIP numbers, and has never been a huge saves guy. Arizona isn't that good. And I think he might also walk a lot of batters, though I'm not sure about that. He's the most risky in terms of injury, and even when he's healthy he's not overly reliable.

I like Dejean best.

3. Mantei often injured and AZ is toast without Schil and Johnson.
2. Looper is good but there is talk of another fire sale in FL.
1. Dejean is going to put up a pretty WHIP or ERA but he gets the job done a should wrap up 30+ saves
