An Iconic Fantasy Baseball Community
Oliver Perez pitched a scoreless ninth in a 3-2 game for his first career save Friday against the A's.
Perez was manager Eric Wedge's choice for the ninth even though the A's had two righties up to start the inning. But there may have been a little strategy there, too; had Wedge gone to righty Carter Capps instead, Brandon Moss and John Jaso likely would have entered as pinch-hitters. Since Perez got the job done, allowing just a soft single in the process, consider him the short-term favorite for saves in Seattle's pen. Tom Wilhelmsen still figures to get a chance to reclaim the job within the next 7-14 days.

Brandon League pitched a scoreless 11th inning to collect his 14th save of the season Saturday in the Dodgers' 5-3 win over the Pirates.
League allowed two hits and was the victim of some poor defense but he got the job done after Kenley Jansen blew a save chance in the bottom of the ninth. League still has an ugly 5.54 season ERA but will be ready to reclaim closer duties if Jansen has another rough outing or two. League should be stashed in most standard fantasy leagues.

he came on with 2 out in the 8th, and then just came back out for the 9th. I wouldn't read too much into it.
"Some fans believe Valverde is a Leyland creation," Leyland says. "They think the manager loves him or he wouldn't be here. I don't understand who they think we should be closing with. I'm asking that question, 'Who the (expletive) should I be closing with?' I mean, do they want some rookie kid? I don't understand that.
"Who the (expletive) should I close with? Who do you want me to close with? Who the (expletive) do you want to be the closer? … I don't know what the (expletive) these people want. They just throw stuff out there. People just talk, they don't think about it."
