My sleeper pick for closers is Danny Graves. I think a lot of people have forgotten about him but if he gets the job back he could be valuable. But I guess that kinda depends on how good the Reds are in 2004.

I also think Joe Nathan might be a good pick next year if he ends up with the job in Minnesota.

I don't think he is a sleeper. The Reds announced last month that Graves will be their closer.

No, I mean he might be a guy that not many people think will have a good year, but I think he will be a good closer.

Hey Mad, I think F. German might be making that big jump...

from rotoworld:

Franklyn German - R - Detroit Tigers Dec 22

Franklyn German pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings yesterday and has a 3.24 ERA in the Dominican Winter League.
German has given up 10 hits, walked two and struck out six in 8 1/3 innings. Although Fernando Rodney might be the early favorite, German should get a chance during the spring to win the closer's role for the Tigers.

look for wickman to regain the closer role in cle. about the comment on him not being great, very few closers are. but wickmans past 2 year stats as a closer:
00: 3.16 era, .242 avg against
01: 2.39 era, .240 avg against
then he got hurt midway through 02. riske will only get the job if wickman isnt fully recovered.

The Indians have already said the job is Wickman's to lose. Personally, I look forward to getting him a lot later in the draft than he should go. :-)
