Two of my three closers have now been traded to become set-up men: Rauch and Marte. I think Rauch has a shot at closing in AZ; Marte, obviously, not in NYC, so Marte goes in favor of Jim Johnson.
Any educated guesses on the mess in St. Louis? I grabbed McClellan in the RCL, and he's available in my Regular League. Other closers in jeopardy? I'm panicking here people. PANICKING.
If KC decides to put Soria in the rotation, I will come down with a big pile of soria in my pants.
I wouldn't hold out any hope for McClellan becoming a closer. He's never done it and I've really been surprised by how well he's pitched this year.
None of the other guys give me hope either, especially Izzy. Cards are going fishing for a lefty reliever but obviously the best one just got away.
That leaves, hmmm, Wainwright for August.* Mark my words.
"a big pile of soria in my pants" Ha
* merely speculation on my part
