In good competitive leagues wait and see means wait and miss out. Unfortunately closers are always at a big premium in my league because it is 12 teams, which means some guys have 2 closers and some have 3 most of the time. Everyone is willing to drop rosterworthy guys for a potential closer because it either means jumping a few spots in the save standings or having a nice trading chip for someone else that wants to do so. I dropped Ankiel, my backup at OF/Util for Accardo, but I'll likely add him back after A-rod, Mauer or Duschscherer hits the DL. It is definitely difficult to wait and see in this league because either someone grabbed the right guy before he became "the guy" or someone grabbed him so quickly you didn't have a chance after he was named "the guy". I am willing to bet someone picks up Downs and maybe even Carlson in there.
