Julio. He'll be closing all year, Embree might not even get 10 saves. Julio has shown last year that he can do it.

I agree. Julio has an established job. It's possible that Embree will nail down the closer's job (so keep an eye on him) - but Boston management has said that they are inclined to go with a bullpen by committee situation - which could severly limit Embree's chances.

Jorge Julio is a flamethrower and he's abosolutely lights out when he comes in to nail it down. He should be consistent for 25 saves and good numbers all around.

Embree's a guy to snag only if you have an extra roster spot, because he COULD become the team's closer -- it's wide open, and the closer-by-committee thing might not happen. If Embree is as sharp as he was late last season, I think he becomes Boston's closer. And with Pedro and Lowe and a decent supporting cast in the Boston starting rotation, there will be plenty of saves to be had for the Sox.
