Detroit's Closer

I'm leaning towards Benoit maintaining the role, but am not confident Leyland won't mix and match with Coke and Dotel. While Albequerque got called back up, he's seemingly lower in the pecking order. Any opinion on this specific to who to pick up? Right now I've got Benoit and Coke but could sure use one of those spots.

No clue but I am hoping Al Al gets it.

Dan dickerson likes Benoit too so it ain't just me. However, every fantasy pert wants al albequerque for his fun to watch performances... And a sick k rate. Leyland doesn't play fantasy baseball.

Dark Horse: Brayan Villareal. Do you think his parents just didn't know how to spell Brian?

They took naming suggestions from Jhonny Peralta's parents.

Loved seeing him visit Yankee stadium. There was a guy that sat behind the visitor's clubhouse who would heckle him like mad by accentuating the H.

"Hey Ju-Honny. How's it goin, Ju-Honny?"

It's not just fantasy but saber people too who think Al should make a better closer than either, so I'd watch the situation. You're holding the guys I would for now though.

Sooner or later, if AL Al has 2-4 good weeks and maintains this sick 13.5 k/9, in addition to some "exciting" 9th in mix and matches, he's gonna get a look.

Coke is getting the save again.

and Coke blows it after Benoit walks the lead off hitter in the ninth.
