Only one I see is Rauch. But in a non keeper he may be more valuable this season than Lawrie.

Not a fan of the dreaded "closer by commitee" tag. Roberts may be a flash in the pan. Pick up Lawrie and hope he wins ROY! :-)

Yeah, I'd drop Rauch. You've got solid RP depth but I can see a scenario where Lawrie becomes your new starting 3B. The potential impact of Lawrie is more significant than Rauch.

"Rauch gave up a hit but recorded two strikeouts in the inning. The Jays are going with a closer by committee approach moving forward following Frank Francisco's blown save on Tuesday, and Rauch has been given the first shot. He's no guarantee to get the next one, as Francisco, Octavio Dotel and possibly Jason Frasor are all in the mix, but he definitely needs to be owned in mixed leagues."

That being said, if you league is shallow you will have the opportunity to pick up other closers over the course of the season. I don't really see a better alternative if you want Lawrie, was there someone you were leaning towards?

Rauch is no sure thing himself. Francisco has way better closer stuff.

This is why Francisco has been removed from his closers job previously as well?

I think the guy that replaced him in Texas is a bit better than Rauch don't you think? Francisco was brought in to be the closer. The Jays brass wants him to succeed. He's crap right now but it's a long season.
