I started a thread about this a few days ago after this news came out:

The honeymoon ended tonight for Armando Benitez as he allowed three runs in 1 2/3 innings against the White Sox to blow just his second save of the season.
Benitez entered in the eighth inning in a 4-0 game with two runners on base. Frank Thomas proceeded to hit a three-run home run to make it a 4-3 game. The Marlins added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth, but Benitez then allowed a two-run home run to Timo Perez to tie the game in the top of the ninth. Tonight's game raised Benitez's ERA from 0.54 to 1.29. He's still a very good option in NL-only leagues, but he won't keep up his high saves pace or his very low ERA.
They seriously said "he's still a good option in NL-only leagues
Are you kidding me?! He is without a doubt a top 10 closer in mixed leagues, and that's even underestimating it a little. If you just look at current stats he's a top 5 closer.
I guess I'm just still bitter at Rotoworld for this quote:

Ken Griffey Jr. has been moved up to the cleanup spot tonight.
Adam Dunn, who is still Cincinanti's best hitter even if he's not as hot as he was at the start of the year, is back batting fifth.
Calling Dunn a "better hitter" than Griffey is just outrageous IMO.
