who are the expected closers for 2012?
Baltimore - Kevin Gregg
Chicago - Matt Thornton?
Oakland - Grant Balfour? Brian Fuentes?
St. Louis - Jason Motte?
Houston - Brandon Lyon? Wilton Lopez?
Los Angeles - Javy Guerra? Kenley Jansen?
Baltimore- Jim Johnson is said to be the closer (not Kevin Gregg)
CWS- Thornton could be the guy, but Jesse Crain and Addison Reed will also compete.
Oakland- add Joey Devine and Fautino De Los Santos to the mix. If healthy, they're both better than Fuentes or Balfour
St. Louis- Yes Jason Motte
Houston- David Carpenter is another possibility. He had a lot of K's last year, and just needs some control
LAD- I think its Javy Guerra's job as long as he does well. Jansen is likely the better pitcher though.
