The only reason Veras has the job is because the team stinks. Even if he holds it I doubt he is really worth owning.
As for Kintzler in Milwaukee... have you seen him pitch? He won't be the closer long if they give him the job, he can't throw his fastball for strikes and relies completely on a sinker/slider combo now and it isn't terribly effective. It won't surprise me if Valverde is closing in Milwaukee by May.
