What Closer is the 1st to lose his job?

I just dropped David Weathers and picked up McCarthy.. In my league Holds=5points while saves =10.. I already have K-Rod, but seeing McCarthy has already blown away Weather points wise in my league, I got him.. Im just not a huge Weathers fan.. McCarthy did earn another Hold tonight ;-D ;-D

I made the exact same move...I am done with the David Weathers Experiment...It sounds like a one hit wonder band from the 70s...Horrible. I also have Orvella. The guys in my league are vultures when it comes to saves. Someone used their number 4 priority on JJ Putz, which is nice cause it moved me to three. Anyone think Wickman in Cleveland might get hurt?? Would Betancourt be next in line there????
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

HUH???

Hermanson's career could be over, Cotts is not a closer (and his '05 was probably a fluke at any rate) and McCarthy profiles strongly as a starter.

I hope you didn't add him just because people are speculating that he'll close...

It's a distant reason, but he also helps out the ERA and WHIP in his current relief pitching role. In my league I have SP SP SP SP RP RP slots only, so he has added value.

I say the 1st one to lost the job is Maceli, because, he is over the hill already if he continues to struggle his job is done then Retisma. But I don't think Braves has anyone else left anyways.
