Quick!!!!!! Who is the Reds closer?

Williamson just got traded tonight. I'm in a league full of sharks. The most likely save candidate will be gone soon. Who is he?

Uh.....will you take a multiple choice response?

Reidling or Reistma. Boone was grooming Reistma to be the setup man and eventually closer. Of course he was also grooming Dunn to be leadoff, if that helps at all.

If I had a gun to my head ... and was forced to choose one, one that won't be traded in the next 48hrs. I would grab Ryan Wagner. especially if it is a keeper league.

Look at the entire bullpen and then add Graves to the list. Take your pick because none of them stand out as a favorite.

I have Julio, Speir, Byung Hyun Kim, and Nenn on the DL (keeper), in a H-H league where you must start 3 RP each week and saves carry a premium, does anyone think it is worth dropping Ryan Franklin or Steve Trachsel for Reitsma? I think he'll get the first crack at saves, but with new management who the heck really knows what to do with that RP situation.

Like Ousmagic said, I'd also drop Trachsel.

Oh yes Graves ... didn't Graves wan't to be a starter ala B Y Kim? Anybody? They might as well piss him off too. He wasn't half bad in the role the last couple of years so it is a possibilty. Who would take his spot in the rotation? (like it matters .. lol)
