Cisnero came in for Houston in the 8th to protect a 2-1 lead but promptly gave up the lead. Any guesses as to who might be the closer?

Three cheers for another committee!

Lo, Zeid, Cisnero, and Fields. Fantasy owners wondered if a closer on a very bad team would be worthless. So Houston traded its closer and replied, No, I'll show you what a worthless closer looks like. :-D

Rex Brothers surrendered a run on two hits against the Pirates on Friday, but still managed to secure his eighth save of the season.
Brothers allowed an RBI double to Pedro Alvarez, but was able to pitch his way around any further damage.

He owns an outstanding 1.39 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 46/22 K/BB ratio through 45 1/3 innings on the season.

With as well as he's pitched, seems possible he'll remain in the closer's role for the remainder of the season, even after Rafael Betancourt returns from the DL.



Thoughts on this???
Good thing i own both brothers and betancourt.....

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Dodgers are the frontrunners to sign reliever Brian Wilson.
CBS Sports' Scott Miller reported Monday night that Pirates and Giants were "serious suitors" for Wilson, but Nightengale hears that the Dodgers have moved ahead of the pack. The right-hander has been out all season rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, but he has impressed in recent bullpen sessions and feels game-ready. He could be an impact reliever down the stretch.


if that happens who closes in LA?


Kenley is a dominate CL... possible top 3 guy in the game imo... Wilson signing shouldn't scare anyone off Jansen... in fact it might be a good time to try to buy on Kenley using that for un unsuspecting owner for leverage.

No one is falling for that. People know it takes time to get into baseball shape (ergo spring training) and then time to catch up to hitters. So he's just doing setup or other role.

I suppose it's late enough to show your BS colors on a regular league, but do not try on a keeper. I tend to make BS Trader lists and whenever I see their name on a trade, I don't bother to even look. I just click veto. I wager I'm not the only one.
I love mock drafts.

Farquhar would be a good add right now if he isn't already gone in your league.

He entered the game in the 8th, then the M's scored 2 in the top of the 9th. Would he have stayed in the game if it had been a save situation entering the 9th?

He really isn't the prototypical closer stuff or size so I think Melina or Perez in a committee might be safer bet. Also, Pryor and Capps could be factors later in the season.

Size, yes, but stuff? Mid-90s fb plus a slider, high k-rate. What's uncloserish?

Yep, Farquhar's still the guy to own.
