Escobar seems to have a long leash in Toronto - 38 saves and 85 k's are very nice numbers but 4.27 ERA and 1.53 WHIP are tough to handle - he's still got a job closing. Looper has been very erratic when given a shot (but at least he has the job now) and Embree is a solid relief go-to-guy (will he be able to close? Boston's really eyeing a bullpen by committee - he might get 15-20 saves or 5 saves). I would say go with Escobar, Looper and then Embree.
Even if Embree doesn't get all the save opportunities in Boston, Boston will win a lot more games than Florida and there will be more saves to be had. Looper will lose his job within the first month of the season.
I will be the lone vote for Looper. His whip was much better then Escobars. Jays are trying to move Escobar, and if they do, he likely will be a set up guy. Starting in June, Loopers era was 2.05 with 13 out of 13 saves.
