the only one i see (at this point before st ) is chacon from col. they have been trying to trade him for a while and this is the latest news on him

from rotoworld

Dec 23 Publically at least, the Rockies are now leaning toward keeping Shawn Chacon and using him as a starting pitcher.

The Rockies felt that teams weren't making significant offers for Chacon because they believed he'd be non-tendered. This may make it easier for them to get what they want. Or they might just keep him if they can get him to avoid arbitration with a modest one-year deal.


from roto times

Dec. 17 Rockies GM Dan O'Dowd said the team would not trade Shawn Chacon this offseason unless "completely blown away with a deal," according to the Denver Post. They didn't find any good offers thus far and plan to stick him back into the starting rotation.


so it looks like hes gonna most likely be starting this year. if i had to make a guess it would be Chin-Hui Tsao as the main guy. but at this point nothing is solid.

Batista will be an SP since they couldn't sign a free agent starter.

Batista was the closer in Toronto the last two weeks of the season. I don't know if it was because Speier was hurt though...

I think you got it right for now... Wickman, Graves, Adams, Mesa and Aquino/Valverde are questionable. I can see Riske or anyone else getting a shot in CLE b/c we all know Wickman ain't staying healthy. Ryan Wagner is a possiblity for CIN. I envision Capellan as MIL closer by season's end. Mesa will blow it and when he does, Torres/Gonzalez are better pitchers. Bruney will be in the mix in AZ.

I have read a few times that Dempster could close for the Cubs and have Hawkins return to setup.

Some time around ST - one of the mods, I think that it's DHC, will start a sticky that he will update with closers and projected rotations.
