My closers on the year:

Gagne
Guardado
Izzy


OUCH!

ps - I think Gagne will be back next year. His value will depend on the team he gets traded to.

Unfrickinbelievable! My H2H playoffs start tonight. Two weeks ago, my bullpen was rock solid and consisted of THIS:

Papelbon
Izzy
Mike Gonzalez

Two weeks later and with $600 on the line here is who I'm starting this weekend:


McClung
Broxton
Salomon frickin Torres

If it helps, Valverde has the closer job back again for the D-Backs. From CBS Sportsline:
Manager Bob Melvin said RHP Jose Valverde (2-3, 6.64) will return to the closer's role. Valverde has gone 2.0 innings in each of his last five outings since being recalled to Arizona from Triple-A Tucson, giving up just two earned runs. "Since we've seen him come back, he's used his off-speed stuff a little bit better," Melvin said. Valverde's last save came May 24 against Pittsburgh

Can't see it helping much when they win once a week!

also, I'd like to mention in addition to:

Gagne
Guardado
Izzy

that I also dropped Burgos in mid-season to pick up McDougle (sp), who had 1 sv for me before he was traded out of the Closer position. Not a good year for me in closing.

Right now I have 3 closers: Ostuka, Putz and Mastny. I need izzy to go to the DL, because I don't want to drop him, if he might pitch again in 2 weeks

From Rotoworld: Sep. 10 - 11:33 am et
Adam Wainwright appears to be the Cardinals choice to close games for the remainder of the season.

With closer Jason Isringhausen questionable for the remainder of the season Wainwright will take over his role in the Cardinals' bullpen. Wainwright has 16 holds this year and his 3.03 ERA is the lowest on the team.
