This thread (that first post essentially) is updated almost every single day of the year. That first post is more reliable than any fantasy website you will find and it should be able to answer most of your questions about closers/SU men. ;-D

John Heyman on 3/23 wrote:Blue Jays closer B.J. Ryan is throwing in the "low 80s,'' according to one AL scout. "I don't know if he's just pacing himself or this is all he's got,'' the scout said. The implication was that if this was all he had, that's a bad sign.


I don't necessarily trust the source, but thought I would throw this out there.


I know Ryan was dealing with some mechanics early on which forced him to skip the WBC. Ryan is not a hard thrower(he hides the ball well during his delivery) but low 80's would be a bit concerning. As a Jays fan and Ryan owner I hope he gets on track before the season starts.

Well, not quite every day. It says on it:

But it is edited enough that I agree it is the best reliable closer information out there.

Well, it has both Marmol and Chris Perez as :-° without even a 8-o

Both of those guys could be set-up men by the end of the week.

That first page is edited very regularly, as needed. It's going to say 2/12 all season. It was last edited on 3/16, if you check the bottom of the post.

Just when you thought he settled down, Street looked pretty bad today closing out the 9th.
1 IP, 3 Hits, 1 ER and it could have been worse

You got to hand give the ball to Corpas to start. Street has 7 ER in 8 IP and Corpas has 1 ER in 6 IP.

How is Qualls in any danger of losing his job? He is rock solid.
