on tampa bay's yahoo team page, under roster, they have Balfour listed as closer. Does this mean anything?

Unlikely, if Yahoo was fortunate enough to get a scoop they'd have it plastered on the fantasy homepage. It's still a closer by committee.

EDIT: Yahoo's most recent update...

When Joe Maddon goes to committee mode, you really don't know what you're going to see on a night-to-night basis. J.P. Howell(notes) worked the eighth for Maddon on Friday (one unearned run, two strikeouts) and Dan Wheeler(notes) started the ninth. Wheeler retired two of the three men he faced – two outs sandwiched around a walk – then gave way to lefty specialist Randy Choate(notes), who salted the game away by striking out all-world catcher Joe Mauer(notes). I suppose we could see Choate fall into a few more saves that fit this context, but I'll be very surprised if he finishes the year with more than 4-5 specialty saves.

Im still thinking, and hoping, that Wheeler will be their closer. He has previous experience and I dont see why he doesn't have Maddon's trust

Maddon just isn't going to do anything permanent until Percy figures out whether or not he's going to call it a day. This is a perfect tryout for the bullpen.
