Yost didn't name a replacement. He might go with a committee involving Matt Wise, Brian Shouse and Jose Capellan. Dan Kolb has pitched better of late, but he's mostly been doing it in blowouts. Wise is the best pickup of the group in fantasy leagues. Turnbow, who has blown four saves and taken four losses this month, should get a chance to reclaim his job as soon as he strings some good outings togteher. Jul. 22 - 2:40 am et

According to the Closer Watch Blog (http://theinsidepitch.com/Closer_Watch_Blog.html), it will be a closer-by-committee led by surprise choice, Dan Kolb. I'm amazed to find Kolb still available in my league that counts holds, but I'm a little too afraid of that 5.87 ERA/ 1.565 WHIP/ Braves pedigree to pick him up yet. But if you are DESPERATE for saves, you might look at him.

A. If it is a keeper league NO!

B. It depends on how your situation is at SS and in saves. I wouldn't want to touch this Brewers situation unless you are totally desperate for saves because there's about 3 guys (Kolb, Wise, Capellan) who can get save opps.
