Speier because he alreay has the job

Soriano but at the beginning of the year he will only get holds, probably around mid-season he will get the closing job

Wagner will also have to earn the job, but doesn't have the talent of Soriano

i dont think soriano will get too many saves this year. they dont call guardado every day eddie for nothin.

i dont believe toronto has officially named speir the closer. i think aquilino still has a chance at getting it.

wagner is the closer of the future in cincy but i think graves will have a solid year so they will stick with him. if wagner is really lights out the reds may opt to trade graves.

as far as chances for saves i would rate them:

speir
wagner
soriano

I agree with McNugent.

Speier
Wagner
Soriano

Speier will likely get saves in the near future.

Wagner is more remote, but it is very possible that the Reds trade Graves before the trade deadline to get rid of his contract, particularly if they are out of the division race. When that happens, at this point Chris Reitsma would probably take the closer role, but if Wagner has been lights-out to that point in the season, the Reds may give the job to him.

Soriano is an excellent pitcher, but Guardado is not likely to do anything to jeopardize his position as closer. Soriano will set up for Guardado.

... IF they're out of the division race?
I agree with everything said, except with the pitching in Cincy the way it is, I think we can expect Wagner to be closing by midseason-- because they will be out of the division race.

Speir
Wagner
