Texas Closer............any news?

Postby fimk3777 » Tue Mar 04, 2008 9:32 pm

Is the Closer Thread posted to this Forum ever updated? Who is currently the front runner in Texas, CJ or Every so Often Eddie. Too early to tell most likely but my draft day is coming up. Does anyone have any insight? I am leaning towards CJ as he held the role late last year, did sorta OK, and Eddie is damaged goods. Anyone???? :-S

Thanks and leave a link.

For Texas I have
Closer: C.J. Wilson lhp
1st in Line: Eddie Guardado lhp
2nd in Line Joaquin Benoit


I heard that Guardado may start the season as closer if Wilson shows signs of weakness in spring. It was my understanding that Guardado was brought in to mentor to Wilson. With that said its Wilsons job to lose. Keep an eye on his spring stats, as well as this site: http://www.theinsidepitch.com/Closer_Watch.html

Actually Benoit finished the 2007 season as the Tex closer.

Technically, CJ Wilson finished the year as closer. His last save was 9/23 while Benoit's was 9/21. Truthfully, I don't think TEX had an official closer at the end. I specifically remember them switching b/w the two, which made it a real pain to chase saves.

Benoit is the best pitcher in the bullpen so my guess is he ends up the closer eventually.
