Jenks. no chance. if jenks isnt closing he's worthless. and to be honest jenks hasnt even been that bad. a victim of bad defense. and we have no one to back him up. and please dont buy into the mccarthy hype, cuz that aint happenin.
Marte being traded is actually a bad thing for Gonzo closing, because then they wouldn't have a lefty out of the pen, right? Still, I don't see him losing his job.
All along, the Sox have still been talking about Foulke returning to form, so Papelbon is still a somewhat shaky option. And no, I'm not a sour Foulke owner. I have Paps in multiple leagues and Foulke in no $ leagues.
I would add Armando Benitez to your list, though. He should be returning soon, but he was horrific in ST and it's questionable whether or not his knees are fully healthy.

Guess who owns the bolded players in his money league.
