What's the deal in Colorado? Is Corpas definitely the man? Are we expecting much from him?

Interesting that something could be considered incorrect when the season has yet to begin and depth charts haven't even been finalized. There is a lot that can happen to change even the most stable bullpen. Anything prior to final roster announcements is simply pure speculation based on logic, rumor, news, injury, etc. and is, in my opinion, the best and most current closer thread out there if I do say so myself. If you disagree with the order, feel free to not visit the thread.

Neither is impressing right now. Street had been good his last 8 innings or so until last outing and Corpas has had several shaky outings in a row. I think Corpas has the slight edge right now, but it is still up for grabs.

Order is definitely looking better now than it did before. My only suggestions would be to include Saito as next in line in BOS (or at least 2nd in line) and change the COL closing situation as shaky.

Saito needs to prove he's fully healthy and earn his way up the ranks in Boston to move up the depth chart but its something he's capable of doing nonetheless. The COL situation is still in the hands of Corpas right now imo but a change in status might be needed very soon. The coming days should be very telling.

I'm simply pointing out that this list should not be taken as gospel just like any list since it is subjective and dynamic. No need to take it personally just because I disagree with your opinion.

Nothing personal taken at all but to say something is incorrect when its practically impossible to be so at this point is without doubt incorrect in itself.
