You will be fine with Valverde and Izzy, who I think are both poised for bounceback years. Obviously, good balance everywhere else. If you can keep your ear tapped to the waiver wire, another closer may come up and you can grab him.

Help me!

I wouldn't be too worried about saves.

You have Izzy and Valverde and saves can always be discovered later on in the season.

Like the post above, keep an eye on the waiver wire, particularly early in the season as it seems like several closing jobs are in the air / subject to change

I just missed out on Zumaya, he was taken 2 picks ahead of me so I waited a couple of more rounds and took Broxton. Any other opinions would be helpful.

In a 10 team league I'd be looking to get a 3rd closer, especially a safe one since Izzy is injury prone and Valverde hasn't proven he can keep the job a whole season. Maybe try to trade an outfielder for a closer, and atleast keep your eyes on the waiver wire.

I'm a firm believer in staying competitive in all categories, and in a 10-team league, you could really use a 3rd closer.

If Jorge Julio hasn't already been claimed, grab him NOW. He's the guy in Florida.

In Cincinnati, it looks like Hermanson is the guy. He's not listed in Yahoo yet, but once he is, he may be worth a waiver claim.

And in Tampa Bay, I believe Al Reyes is the most likely guy to emerge from the closer-by-committee that will start the season.

Good luck.

And if you don't mind, take a look at my post & give me some feedback: http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... p?t=263078

snag jorge julio, the marlins acquired him to be the closer there so he should have the spot locked down unless he really craps the bed.

take a look at mine

Julio or hermanson add. Izzy will get over 30 saves.
