Wait wait wait! Wasn't atlanta's entire plan to raise McBride as a closer? What happened? I thought McBride will be the guy from here on!

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I think he is seen more as a set up type guy in the Braves system. Devine is defiantly ahead of him on the RP prospects that are in line to close.

He had a bum shoulder last year, so it will be interesting to see how he comes back from that. He has the stuff to close, but some people question if he has the mentality/make up to make it as a closer.

I banked on Wagner being the closer last year (got him in the last round) and getting at least 20 saves...Boy was I wrong!!! I remember starting him last year and getting absolutely lit up, giving up 4 ERs without recording an out!!!!! had to cut him loose after that.

But with all that being said, he's still young and still the closer of the future.

Thanks chipper!!!!

There is such a thing called clutch and David Ortiz is the modern day definition of it

Orvella is the only guy that I would even consider in a mixed league. If I was taking a gamble in an NL-only league, I'd waste picks on Devine and Wagner, then cross my fingers and pet my rabbit's foot.
