Me too. I have ended up with five closers as of Sale's change, and one guy has zero actual relievers, the Mariano owner has three other solid closers, and I have no trade compatibility with the Storen and Bailey owners. Most guys in my league are happy to have two closers and the rest starting pitchers. The guys with more than two are pretty lucky with theirs so far.
Only closer I drafted this year was Sergio Santos in the 16th round. Now I own Robertson, Casilla, and just made the Cashner add. The one dude that owned Rivera and Wilson has been sending me angry texts on an hourly basis since ~9pm last night.
Josh Johnson: 2.7 ip, 6 h, 3 bb, 6 r, 1 k Steve Cishek: 3.0 ip, 1 h, 2 bb, 0 r, 3 k
Cishek should get a win and a save for that one. Pitched more innings than the starter and ended the game.

Sounds like a good strategy. I took two high-end closers, thinking their 80+ saves would allow me to forget about RP for the entire season/rest of the draft. Four weeks in and they have maybe ten at the most between them, just not many wins and save ops for them so far
Next year I think I'm going to wait until around the 16-18 rounds to pick up a closer or two. Seems like all the marquee closers are either not getting many chances or are injured, and the leaders are pretty much fliers/first year closers/WW pick ups. For saves so far, two of the top twelve were top 180 picks in Yahoo! drafts.
