I've thought it's been Lopez all along. ESPN has him listed as the closer. Rotoworld has been saying he will be the closer.
I'll let people take Biddle, Borowski, Koch, Mesa, Wickman, Graves, Mac Dougal or any other closer likely to lose his job and kill your ERA/WHIP.

I think Lopez has a better chance than most of the above. He is usually available later in the draft.

...then again I thought Brandon Villafuerte and Alan Embree were good candidates for success last year. I'll cut bait on Lopez quick if he struggles, but I think he is a decent sleeper closer.

I don't see Graves as a WHIP/ERA killer. He was a pretty good closer in 2001 and 2002. He didn't fare too well as a starter last year, but I like his chances to return to form in his old role this year.

The Jays love Aquilino and Tosca has said so. The Jays website has gone back and forth sometimes listing Lopez as the closer, sometimes Spieir (right now it says Spieir). Even if Spieir wins the job Lopez will steal a lot of saves from him this year. Lightenberg will also get some and Halladay will go the distance as often as he wants to - so I don't think either of them are great pick ups for saves.
