Alou has indicated that it will be a CBC with Brower, Herges, and Fassero in the mix
I'd avoid, avoid, avoid any of these guys in fantasy leagues. The pen has stunk this year

God help the Giants. I'm super deperate for saves, so I picked up Herges today. Brower is more of a long man in that pen, he's even been used as a spot starter from time to time. I think the Giants would like to leave him in that role, and as lefties rarely get the job, that pretty much leaves Herges.
Bringing up Valdez or Aardsma seems unlikely as they are so young and have little ML experience.
If I was desperate for saves, I'd go get herges right now. If he somehow gets on a roll, he might save 23 games like last year.
