Good read. I like to see closer stability. Personally I thought Speier had the job in Toronto, but I guess not. Either way, I love how our bullpen situation is looking.
I think Joe Nathan will be the sleeper closer of the year.
Riske and Marte are also 2 of my favourites. If either of them get the chance they'll be 2nd tier closers, behind Smoltz, Gagne, and Wagner.
Unfortunately it doesn't look like Marte will get the chance, even with Flash Gordon gone. Koch and Wickman aren't worthy of being closers for their teams....I wish money weren't a factor <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif> Things would be much easier to predict.
