Which closer?

Tough call.

I've got the Angels pegged to win the division, so I believe there will be plenty of chances for Percival. He was injured last year, so there's a small question mark for him.

Guardado saved 41 and 45 games the last two years. Now he's on a better team (sorry Twins fans) so I believe that 40 saves is a very reasonable number.

Flip a coin.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Guardado is the obvious choice. Everyday Eddie has become as consistent as they come. Percival's hip can "come apart at anytime". With K-Rod waiting, they may not want to risk Percival's health if they are winning the division.
It's like I've died and gone to heaven......but then they realized that it wasn't my time, so they sent me to a brewery.

I had Percival 9th on my list and E.E. 10th. Percival provides more upside, BUT is the bigger risk of the two, so guess it all depends on how risk adverse you are.


Couldn't be much closer ;-D CLOSER>>>>GET IT!!!!!
