What Closer is the 1st to lose his job?

Who do you see as the first Closer losing their job due to bad performance? I say Miceli

I still don't consider Miceli the closer, so I will go with Reitsma as losing his role shortly. The Braves are going to have to fix that pitching staff especially the bullpen if the starters keeping giving up 5 or 6 runs a game.

Maddon has already stated that Miceli is his closer.So I a going to go with him and for Orvella take over.Foulke never really had the job this year to begin with.I say that Todd Jones will be next in line.Zumaya looks like he is going to nasty

Sure Foulke did...he had 1 outting.

Jones will be fine if he is healthy. And Rodney is doing a decent job in job stead.

The Florida and TB closing situations are jokes. Atlanta is not much better. And SF could implode in a hurry if Benitez can't get his arm strength back. He was stinking up the place before his latest injury.

I don't know how much longer Weathers can hold it down for.

Weathers was my 2nd choice.. I own him and do not feel comfortable at all with him closing. I may opt to go with a good MR instead of him in my HTH league..
