Escobar, Looper, Embree.

Someone just dropped Escobar for Witasick. Is Escobar not going to be closing in Toronto anymore??

I would say the order you have them listed in Escobar, Looper Embree

Esco and Loop ar starting the season as closers. Embree will be one of comimittee.

Escobar seems to have a long leash in Toronto - 38 saves and 85 k's are very nice numbers but 4.27 ERA and 1.53 WHIP are tough to handle - he's still got a job closing. Looper has been very erratic when given a shot (but at least he has the job now) and Embree is a solid relief go-to-guy (will he be able to close? Boston's really eyeing a bullpen by committee - he might get 15-20 saves or 5 saves). I would say go with Escobar, Looper and then Embree.

Escobar, Embree, Looper

Even if Embree doesn't get all the save opportunities in Boston, Boston will win a lot more games than Florida and there will be more saves to be had. Looper will lose his job within the first month of the season.

Escobar, Embree, Looper

Escobar will have the closer job to himself when the season starts. However, he may be traded by midseason, opening the door for Cliff Politte to close.

Embree ahead of Looper because both are using the comittee approach, but Boston will have more save opps.

I will be the lone vote for Looper. His whip was much better then Escobars. Jays are trying to move Escobar, and if they do, he likely will be a set up guy. Starting in June, Loopers era was 2.05 with 13 out of 13 saves.
