Losing teams are great places to find cheap saves. As someone already said here, they get more chances in close games.
I think the WA situation is definitely worth keeping an eye on.
And if one of those bums learns how to close out a game they might win a few more.
Cordero and Soria are/where top closers though. None of these guys on the Nationals are or even have the tool's to become top closers. At max they will get 45 save opp's as a team and I doubt they convert 30 of them, divided by the 8 different guys we see closing you'd be better off grabbing a MR from another team
cadensdad, no offense but i think your statement is quite ignorant since you have no idea of the depth of the leagues people play. some play NL/AL only or super deep, 16+ team leagues where saves are hard to come by. stop trying to defend yourself because your original statement is wrong as can be and there is a reason why we come to this thread to discuss these things.
