Let’s give the ole Closer Rankings a slight reshuffle. There is bound to be much more news coming as summer camps start to ramp up. I’ve pushed the “Don’t pay for saves” mantra plenty. I’m doubling down on that in this 60 game season. If a closer misses any time, COVID related or otherwise, that destroys their value. It’s an enormous risk to take on top of the already rather large risk of paying for a top closer. Give me cheap saves in a high variance window. Tiers are summer camp themed!

Sports Camp: The cool kids go here. It helps if you’re good at the actual sport but walking around with the equipment is all that’s required.

Lake Whatever Camp: It’s not the plushest accommodations. You do get to basically do whatever you want while your ‘rents stash you away in the woods, though.

Science Camp: Underrated. Sure, it sounds nerdy on the surface but you learn some actually cool stuff. Maybe even lay the foundation to be a future meth cook.

Church Camp: I don’t mean to take a shot at organized religion but your summer camp game is weak.

      hahahaha. that one isn’t weeks behind either, it’s about 4 months behind give or take a week.

    Munoz has TJ surgery. I think Pomeranz is the handcuff.

      Missed that one. Thanks for catching it. They traded for Pagan and still have Stammen. Expect a hot hand role between the three.

    Pretty sure Seranthony Dominguez is done until 2022 as well since he still hasn’t even gotten TJS that was recommended in March due to travel issues…

      Yep, I missed updating a couple of the handcuffs. I’ll blame the quarantine beard blocking my vision.

    21 man keeper league, 30 man roster, head to head categories, saves is a category.

    Does it makes sense to keep all 3 of my closers from last season? Chapman, Giles, Archie Bradley… my initial thought was to drop Bradley. Would you keep Bradley over Kingery, Bryan Reynolds or Ryan Mcmahon?

      That’s pretty close. It’s nice having the saves close to locked up each week (assuming most don’t have 3 of that quality). I’d normally say chance finding saves but who knows what that will look like. None of those bats are all that exciting, either.
