Yeah, I agree.

Also, Ryan Dempster is in the lead for the Cubs closer. I picked him up near the very end of my draft. No guarentee yet obviously, but worth a shot.

Also Urbina is a setup guy now, but he will probably get traded and be someones closer. I got him at the end of my draft also.

As much as I can't stand him and think he has been one of the most overrated fantasy guys the past few years, I will have to say Julio. The O's resigned him for a year yesterday and said that he will compete for the closer job in ST, meaning that Ryan does not officially have the job yet. If (when?) he loses out to Ryan, I could see him getting traded before the season starts to some team desperate for a closer. I am not saying the chance is any better than 50% he will have a job by the beginning of the season, but given that you could have him for a song this sounds like a good sleeper to me.

Well, he isn't definitely an unknown, but I like Guardado as a great value pick. The injury concern goes w/o saying, but if you have room for at least one of seattle's other guys, i think he is definitely worth the late round pick.

I'm looking at getting Bobby Thigpen late. ;-)

I think Danys Baez and Bob Wickman(if he can stay healthy) are both decent late round closers.

Actually I would argue that Ryan is the opposite of a sleeper. Everyone is talking as if he will step right into being a top notch closer, but he is completely unproven in that role and hasn't even been officially awarded the job yet. I would still like to have him on my team, but when people are valuing him like he is a sure shot.

Another sleeper is Tim Worrell, considering the injury problems that Wagner had last year.

Sleeper for Saves...

Putz -Sea
Shields -LAA
Urbina - Det (I think he'll get traded soon to close soon though)
Brandon League - Tor
Yabu - Oakland
Wanger - Cin


These are just some guesses.
