4 scrub closers, but you can only choose one.

I can pick up any of the following 4 closers on the waiver wire.

Herges
Koch
Leskanic
Mesa

Who should it be?

herges is not a scrub... uinfortunately for him nen may be back sooner rather than later.

I'd probably pick up herges for now and if/when nen comes back reassess the situation. if you don't like that solution then I'd probbly take mesa... I think he is more likely to bounce back than koch.

My bet is most would take herges, but I actually like Koch here. hes really the only truly proven one out of the list. Mesa used to be good but is just too old, and is on a terrible offense.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Don't really see the logic in commenting on Pitt's offense? Yes, they're offense will keep them from winning games, but also, it will have them keep their leads close.

koch and mesa were both on something last year... they both completely collapsed. I think mesa will do better as I think he has more pitches than koch, who only throws heat.

Against that division don't expect too many leads. No leads=no save opprotunities=no saves.

Wow, so you're predicting Pitt to go 0-162? Utterly amazing.

LESKANIC!!! No1 has mentioned him, and he isn't a scrub. Leskanic had a good ERA last season, and will start this season as the teams CL. Once MacDougal falters, and I think he will, Leskanic will be the full-time CL.

Milwaukee and Pittsburgh were two of the best, if not the #1 and #2 clubs to provide save opps last year. So being good doesn't mean getting a lot of save opps.

I, for one, will be very suprised if Mariano Rivera surpasses 35 saves.
