Hey what do you guys think of him? He is supposed to close for the Jays this year. How do you think he will do? Is he worth a 16th round pick in my 16 team h2h draft?

No - the Jays love Aqualino. Aqualino will get a lot of Speier's saves, if not actually share the job with him.

Speier is listed as the closer on their website but the Jays have said that the job is wide open in spring training with Lightenberg and de los Santos have a shot as well.

Keep a vigelant monotor of the waiver wire and hope to snag whoever the Jays start using as closer that way. It's what I plan to do. Or you could draft Lopez, Speier, Lightenberg, if you have the roster room and drop the two who do not get the job.

Personally, I've got Speier pegged to win the job in spring training. No guarantees or anything and the job is up for grabs, but I just believe that Speier will take it.
