Has anyone heard whether the Orioles are going to deal Julio? Will this mean that Ryan's the closer?

No way Julio gets traded. Ryan would only go as another set up guy so no fantasy implications all around.

On a side note, Ryan has blown twice as many saves for the O's this season than Julio.

Ryan has 3 BS's, Julio has 2. I'm sure Ryan's been in more save situations than Julio too. Blown Saves for setup men are greatly misunderstood.

Ryan is a better reliever than Julio, that much is quite clear. But he's better in a setup role so they can put him in when more lefties are due up and he's even more effective. Which is why he probably won't become the closer.
