Havok, if nothing else huge pops up before Friday, would you mind giving us a Washington update in your Weekly Closer Complex article? I found the St. Louis article very instructive and am glad to have Frankin in one of my leagues.

Any other closer situations we should be keeping a close eye on?


Are you kidding? About half of them warrant a close watching.

My bad if I'm late on this but is Aardsma worth holding onto? I know Morrows the guy but if theres a save a week to be had due to them wanting to rest Morrow after back to back days then maybe Aardsma is worth holding onto.

Think you answered your own question. I'd agree with you. ;-D

I doubt it is a save a week (Aardsma won't see 25+ save opps) if Morrow remains the primary go-to-guy but 10-15 opps is certainly likely. Morrow will probably pitch more back to back opps as the season goes on too. Also, I doubt Seattle keeps winning like they have. Definitely worth holding in deeper leagues if you need saves.

I still think that Franklin will be back to setting up when Motte or Perez figures it out.
In Washington Saul Rivera suck more than Hanrahan.

Zumaya seems to be on his way back. Is he going to challenge Rodney at all?

I really don't think Aardsma is worth holding on to in non-hold leagues at this point unless Morrow goes down with an injury. Some of the save chances Morrow misses, for whatever reason, will go to matchup guys, ie lefties, and not Aardsma and Aardsma doesn't have the track record you really want in a MR for shallow or mixed leagues imo.
