He's not the exclusive closer anymore...it's now a closer by committee.

Yep. Another closer bites the dust.
Yes doctor, I am sick.

From Rotoworld.com:

Jason Frasor pitched a scoreless eighth inning with the Jays leading 5-3 against the Mariners tonight but was lifted in favor of Justin Speier in the ninth.
Frasor hadn't been pitching well of late. His 9.26 ERA in August certainly wasn't winning him any favors, but he didn't blow a save and only lost one game during that span. Given that Frasor is 17-for-18 in save opportunities, this seems a little harsh. He should still be expected to get the majority of save chances for the Blue Jays, but it's clear that manager John Gibbons no longer sees him as the sole option in the ninth inning.

and


Justin Speier picked up a save tonight against the Mariners by working a scoreless ninth. Jason Frasor pitched a scoreless eighth.
Speier has allowed just three runs in his last 16 appearances, so he should probably be picked up in AL-only leagues. He's probably not going to pick up more than another one or two saves, though.


Someone picked up Aquino in my league already. Looks like it's JJ Putz time!

DHC's gotta update the closer watch. He still has Terry Adams battling Speier for the backup job.

I just read on mlb.com that he did pitch the start of the ninth but was pulled when he allowed a leadoff double. He's on a very, very short leash.
