Aquilino Lopez or Justin Speier?

Who's the closer? The Jays should be good this year!

I'm hoping Speier and he is currently listed as their closer everywhere I have looked. Lopez was drafted in both drafts I have been in and Speier has been undrafted in both. Speier could be a major steal if he lands and holds the job.

The jury is still out, the jury. The smart money's on Speier though. He's had a better spring than ALo so far...

http://www.theinsidepitch.com had Speier listed as the closer for ahile but recently changed to Lopez.

It's still Speier. But Lopez should take over at some point, especiallly if/when the Jays fall out of contention in the east.

Being in the same division as Steinbrenner and Epstein means you start the season out of contention :-D

I've been seeing just the opposite...that it was Lopez's job to lose and he would probably be in the closer's role to start the season...with Speier probably taking over at some point if (when)Lopez struggles...

What I find screwy is the fact that Lopez went 12 for 12 in save opps at the end of last year and Speier, a so-so closer from Colorado, somehow boots Lopez from the gig (at least in print). I don't know about you but I'd stick with the 12/12 guy and then use Speier as backup. ;-7
