wondering what you all think are the best sleeper closers here as the MLB trade deadline approaches

my thoughts:

if Sherrill dealt - who is next, Baez, Johnson or Ray?
if H Bell dealt - Mujica, Adams, other?
if Street dealt - no clear options in Colorado, who do you like?

others: Jenks, Valverde, Mike Gonz/Soriano

Johnson, Mujica -- don't see Bell getting traded -- Don't see Street getting traded either.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

So Grey who are you seeing as most likely to jump into closer role as we near deadline?

--Sherrill seems all but gone, but Jim Johnson has been sloppy as set up
--H Bell seems more likely to be dealt than people think, Mike Adams has pitched well, as has Gregerson

Any others?

Other closer news:
--Worried at all about Jenks? If so, are you liking Linebrink over Thornton if DL'd?
--Think S Burnett gets a look as closer in Washington? He's pitched well.

don't forget Jon Rauch if Chad Qualls gets flipped.

Thornton

Doubtful on Burnett

Maybe Baez if Johnson's been bad.

Mujica then Gregerson if Bell gets dealt, but it could flip-flop, there's no definite setup man there.
