with all the Valverde talk, it should be noted he pitched 1 inning tonight in a non save situation.

rotoworld with some advice that I think I could actually agree with. how about that.
Oliver Perez pitched a scoreless ninth in a 3-2 game for his first career save Friday against the A's.

Perez was manager Eric Wedge's choice for the ninth even though the A's had two righties up to start the inning. But there may have been a little strategy there, too; had Wedge gone to righty Carter Capps instead, Brandon Moss and John Jaso likely would have entered as pinch-hitters. Since Perez got the job done, allowing just a soft single in the process, consider him the short-term favorite for saves in Seattle's pen. Tom Wilhelmsen still figures to get a chance to reclaim the job within the next 7-14 days.

Dodgers were leading 3-2 in the bottom of the 9th when Jansen allowed a solo HR to Travis Snider to tie the game. Dodgers went on to score 2 in the top of the 11th allowing League to come on in the bottom of the 11th for the save.
I don't think this should have any effect on Jansen's value at all.


EDIT:
rotoworld
Brandon League pitched a scoreless 11th inning to collect his 14th save of the season Saturday in the Dodgers' 5-3 win over the Pirates.

League allowed two hits and was the victim of some poor defense but he got the job done after Kenley Jansen blew a save chance in the bottom of the ninth. League still has an ugly 5.54 season ERA but will be ready to reclaim closer duties if Jansen has another rough outing or two. League should be stashed in most standard fantasy leagues.


another rough outing? yeah because a solo HR is so rough.

he came on with 2 out in the 8th, and then just came back out for the 9th. I wouldn't read too much into it.

"Some fans believe Valverde is a Leyland creation," Leyland says. "They think the manager loves him or he wouldn't be here. I don't understand who they think we should be closing with. I'm asking that question, 'Who the (expletive) should I be closing with?' I mean, do they want some rookie kid? I don't understand that.

"Who the (expletive) should I close with? Who do you want me to close with? Who the (expletive) do you want to be the closer? … I don't know what the (expletive) these people want. They just throw stuff out there. People just talk, they don't think about it."


With a quote like that I think it's safe to say you should keep an eye on Benoit.
