Brian Fuentes vs. Matt Mantei

Chacon is moving back to the Rockies rotation next season, and I assume that Fuentes is the frontrunner for closing duties next season. Would you rate him over the injury-plagued Matt Mantei? Fuentes will be quite cheaper for me in a salary-cap keeper league.

Fuentes is really good, in fact, he's so good, you should trade Carl Crawford for him. :-D

Fuentes had value on my roster this year with holds as a category. It was a 20 team 2h2 league so he got a few stray K's and the occasional hold until his back flared up on him.

If he can stay healthy this year he might be in the mix for the closer role, if not, count on him to be the setup man again.

Fuentes is a Lefty ...
So I would say its more likely that Colorado would look at bring in in a closer over the offseson.

could Fuentes do the job, probably ..
But, I would rate them both really low on my list, and still give the edge to Mantei, simply because of experience.

I thought Tsao was in line to get the job?

I said I assume Fuentes is the front runner. I'm no Rockies aficiniado, I'm not completely sure.

I would assume he'd probably set-up there. He doesn't seem like the closer type to me, but you never know. Holds are worth just as much as saves, anyway. :-)

From everything ive read it's Tsao's job to lose in spring training

The lefty bias against closers is gonna keep Fuentes from claiming it as a full time gig IMO
