Who will replace Francisco? Dotel? Frasor? Rauch? WHIR

Postby misterf » Sat May 28, 2011 7:58 pm

My bullpen is already a mess.....and now it looks like Francisco is going to lose his job (at least hi will stop killing my era and whip)

The question is, who will replace Francisco asToronto's closer? Rauch, Dotel or Frasor?

Another owner in our league has had Rauch stashed since our draft, so I can't pick him up. But Dotel and Frasor are both available......which one (if any) should I pick up?

Thanks in advance......of course, WHIR!

Toronto doesn't have a solid closer. It's a 3 man closer system right now, so one will be chosen depending on the matchup. Francisco/Rauch/Frasor

It's a 4 man clusterfuck. No one will run with the job either. All match ups.

Big Jays fan here. To my knowledge Frasor is not being considered to close things out. At least not right now. It's a three man committee, Francisco, Dotel, and Rauch. If Rauch can steady the ship he'll likely emerge short term. Dotel is lights out against rigthties but poor against lefties. Francisco has obviously struggled to lock down the job many expected him to have upon returning.

The closer role is up in the air right now. I would stay away from that situation for a few weeks until they pick a sure bet closer.

Yeah, unless your fantasy bullpen is so in flux with guys coming in and out looking for saves, and you can afford to speculate on one or more of the Toronto options being discussed, it's best to leave it be until the dust settles.
