Where is the closer sticky? and what's a sticky?

A sticky is a post that will stay at the top of the forum. The closer sticky has been around for the last couple of years to give us an idea of who would be the closer for all the teams.

As it stand right now, I would definitley target drafting Ray as a mid to low-range closer, but I wouldn't put Reitsma or Devine very high up from the bottom of closer lists. More than likely Atlanta will do something from her on out...RIGHT??? If not, I'll just follow the situation from ST on...but I wouldn't waste much of a draft spot on it!

That would mean Hawkins for a week...Ray...Hawkins for a week again...Reitsma...Hawkins for a week again...etc.



ummm hawkins and ray play for the same team but reitsma does not....ray and hawkins play for baltimore and reitsma for atlanta, dont know if you were confused or whatnot, but just thought id let you know.



I was being overly sarcastic I am afraid...to the point of being confusing. I was trying to make fun of Baker's use of Hawkins as his closer only to change his mind and flip flop repeatedly. Did not come out as well as I wanted obviously.

LOL, that's the same thing I was making fun of. I am suspecting perhaps more of the same this year as Williamson will be chillin' in the pen if Dempster struggles at all, Wood will have something happen, Prior will get tendonitis signing autographs, etc. and then there'll be all sorts of closers on the Cubbies!!
