More importantly keep an eye on Gagne. That's my big worry...keeping Wood around 2 days two long won't hurt anything. If Gagne gets hurt though and you don't grab Baez before someone else then you're sitting there with one closer. Hopefully Gagne's good to go for the entire year but you definitely want to stay on top of that with only 2 closers.

Someone drafted Baez already. You have a link to that list you were talking about regarding RP's? ;-D

Escobar is far from junk, and could be an absolute steal. Get. Him. Now.

Yep...now keep in mind these guys are only guys you want to pick up if there are no other closers available AND Gagne goes down with a prolonged injury or Kerry Wood goes down.

http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... highlight=

Here's my list off the top of my head of volatile closer situations with definite #2 guys that have the stuff to succeed (in no particular order)

Sea- Rafael Soriano replacing not-so-everyday Eddie due to injury
LAA- Scott Shields replacing KRod due to injury
SD- Scott Linebrink replacing Hoffman due to a local AARP convention
Det- Fernando Rodney replacing Todd Jones due to the same AARP convention
Fla- Bowyer replacing Borowski due to ineffectiveness
LAD- Baez replacing Gagne due to injury
Atl- Devine replacing Reitsma due to ineffectiveness

That pretty much covers my list there. Obviously there are other closers that may lose jobs but I only listed guys that I'd be happy about having on my team (not scrubs like Miceli, Tyler Walker, etc).


(Fernando) Cabrera on the other hand is an excellent play...I'd definitely add him to my list.

Kerry Wood (shoulder, knee) threw 52 pitches Wednesday and then unsuccessfully tried to lobby for facing hitters next time out.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
