ROTOWORLD:
Mets manager Terry Collins said that if a save situation arises Saturday, he will likely go with Bobby Parnell.

How'd that work out for ya, Terry?

Acosta's been lights out the last couple of weeks, but I have no inside info. Anyone else?

Farnsworth out a few days with a sore elbow. Peralta got the save last night.

Probably but it would be nice to see how he pitches for the rest of the season and on the other side how Motte does. Salas has a good arm though but I bet you could get him early next season if needed.

Probably an unknown but who exactly is closing for the Giants and the Mets? Lol.

Trying to make a championship run and to vulture as many closers as I can. Have already vultured Jim Johnson, Betancourt, Joel Peralta.

I had Parnell and he was terrible. I'd assume it'd be Acosta by now so I've added him but they haven't had a recent save opp. As far as the Giants I have had Affeldt, Romo, Casilla, Ramirez at some point and dropped them all because I don't know who in the heck it is.

Also a question about the Dodgers? Who would assume the closer role in 2012? Would they bring broxton back, keep guerra, or move Jansen into the role?

My guess is Casilla for the Giants and Acosta for the Mets.

My guess would be Jansen next season. We probably won't have a good idea til spring training though.

Acosta just got hammered in a non-save situation, so who knows what's going to happen these last two weeks. Maybe they give Parnell another look? Do they have any other viable options currently on the roster?

yeah it's annoying. I'm in the playoffs now and up until his shenanigans i had a 0.00 era and a 0.89 whip for the week. i still need saves though and he just jacked my era/whip up unnecessarily.
