McCracken - switch hitter
Counsell - LH
Tracy - LH
Gonzo (on deck) - LH

... ergo, Mercker.

Unfortunately, it won't be the last time.

With Foulke on the DL and zero closers availiable in any of my leagues, I went ahead and added him in a couple of leagues. :-o Let's just hope he gets a few saves to make it worth it. :-o

i know i picked him up, but only because i am the king of hoarding new closers...waiting till the pick up value and shipping them off in trades. I never draft great closers because it tends to come back and haunt me. i live for new closing announcements.

But I was wondering one thing, How do you pronounce his last name?

Does it sound like Be-LIE-ul?

he has a french last name and you pronounce it Bay-Lil.

i don't think i'll pick him up, he has 33 K in 53 innings, an era of 4.22 and his whip is 1.39, it's not really good. :-t

edit: though that he has 4 er in 13.2 innings since june started for an era of 2,63, but only 5 K.

I'd grab Putz now if you want to get ahead of the game. He's likely a FA and there's a decent chance he'll be closing soon if you ask me. ;-D

As for Belisle, give him a mulligan on this one. As Homebrewer mentioned, it was a solid line of lefties. Really, how often can that come along?
