Sleepers in the Closer Position????

Postby mrhsia22 » Thu Apr 01, 2004 12:22 pm

Right now I have Eric Gagne and Matt Mantei as my two closers. Mantei's been having problems with his fingernails and that's making me concerned about that position.

Does anyone know of any closers out there that may sneak up on everyone this season. There are 8 teams in my ROTO league and pretty much all of the well known closers are all taken.

Can anyone help me? Thanks

Joe Nathan, MN homer here, sounds like he's got the closer job locked up, and Gardenhire has said he will not use a committee to close games.

Look at the "Closer Watch" thread. There's a full list of closers on there. It'd probably be more helpful for you to look at that thread and see which current closers aren't taken in your league.

Off the top of my head, you might want Valverde as insurance for Mantei...

Nen will probably be placed on the DL to start the season, and Herges will be his top backup and replacement closer in SF.
