Thayer is the man to own. Last year when Street went down Black went to Thayer over Gregerson. It is the same sort of situation in Boston, where they kept their 8th inning guy (Uehara) in the 8th and went with their middle innings guy as closer. I think if Street goes down Gregerson stays in the 8th and Thayer closes. He was fine in the role last year and has been fine this year even considering his last outing.

In other news, more job security for Parnell in NY.

Francisco felt discomfort yesterday. Another setback it appears. Going to the doctor this week.

Glen Perkins threw today and felt fine. He's available out of the bullpen today after being out with soreness in his left side.

Which closer should I try to get today? All are FA's and we do a blind auction on Sundays for free agents.
Heath Bell, Tazawa, or Cishek (i dropped him last week)

My current closers: Mujica, Janssen, League and Frieri (I have an open roster slot and don't have to drop anyone)

Without knowing the particulars of the league. I'd switch League for Cishek.

This is pretty much useless to anyone who reads this thread. Ask league or team specific questions in the Draft/Trade/Keeper/Waivers questions. That thread is tailor made for those types of questions. Please don't justify posts like these with a response and please people, keep this kind of stuff out of here. Same with the game commentary and venting. There are places for that as well.

I don't know why I have to keep telling people this.

League sloppy again in a non save situation. Janson was lights out as usual, and has struck out 12 of the last 18 batters he has faced.
