Anybody holding on to Mike Macdougal? He should be back in a couple weeks and regain his closer role.

How many save opportunities will he have, besides you have plenty of relievers. I don't see him getting many opportunities just because of the team he's on. :-t

If he gets moved to a contender, he's a very wise investment of a DL spot.
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.

I have had him on one of my DL spots all year, mainly because I drafted Burgos late and wanted to keep a closer. Sure, he might get 5-10 saves all year, but I might need those 5-10 saves. Especially considering I'm 8 behind the league leader in saves. ;-D

He's sitting there as a FA in one league, so I intend on picking him up while placing Hamels on the DL (will figure out who to drop later). I don't think the number of save opportunities differ that significantly between contenders and bad teams (though KC is really, really bad, so that may affect it). Like, contenders win a lot, but they also win many games by more than 3 runs, thus not providing added save opportunities. And the ability to win 1 run games don't seem to be fairly luck driven.

Y'know, I wrote that Braves thing just in passing, but is there really any reason the Braves WOULDN'T try to make a play for MacDougal?

Not only should they make a play for him...if they did make a play for him I can't see why he wouldn't be the closer. He's better overall than Reitsma. He's not great mind you but he has better tools for succeeding as a closer than Atlanta's current options have.
