Melancon

I thInk he's going to be the closer from the get go

Grilli

Maybe. Friends of mine in the Burgh think Melancon will get the gig. But they are a bunch of no-good-nicks

Good list! I'd add Venters to that if he comes back quickly this year.

Even in a keeper league, are any of them very worthy?

Holds all are as golden as closers.

Eric O'flaherty and my homer pick Joakim Soria. I hope Soria gets the closer spot, but I think Feliz has to lose it him.

Couple others:

Arodys Vizcaino (filthy, guy to really watch)

Carlos Martinez (electric, opening day role undetermined)

Brandon Kintzler (solid dude for holds)

Ryan Madson (FA, but should sign on somewhere - wait and see guy)

Joe Smith (see Kintzler)

Rex Brothers (good stuff, bad command)

Carter Capps (stuff is there, consistency isn't)

Heath Hembree (kinda had that closer of the future label for awhile, misses bats, improving command)

So in my closer section of my spreadsheet, there are a list of "high upside" guys that probably wont have the closer job to start the year, maybe missing a couple, havent quite finished but here we go:

Jake McGee

Kelvin Herrera

Doolittle, Cook and Gregorson in Oakland

Rondon and Albequerque in DET

Steve Delabar

Tyler Clippard and Drew Storen in DC

Blake Parker

Carter Capps

Rex Brothers (if they give job to Hawkins)

Jesse Crain

I prefer Pryor to Capps.

Love Melancon if Grilli starts with the job.

I'm a big believer in Cody Allen.

If you had to pick one of Storen or Clippard to handcuff Sorianio which would it be?

Remember Capps is now a Marlin, he was their return for LoMo.

If I had to pick a Soriano handcuff I'd say Clippard, just because I think the Nats like him more and Storen's name gets brought up in trade rumors all the time. I actually prefer Storen myself - but I think the Nats feel differently.

Brian Wilson is a guy I'd target, especially if the Dodgers start messing with Jansen's save opps again, plus his heart condition is a legitimate risk. Wilson was dominant late last year so not worried about rust or lingering injury or shortened offseason.

Really good one. I'm kind of expecting CBC with those two. Kenley can be deployed in the 7th or 8th if runners are on base.

Think Rivera/Wetteland but with more saves for Kenley.

Totally brainlocked on Capps being in Florida.

Totally agree with you on the Nats situation as well.

The Marlins obviously like Capps, but I don't think he'll be our primary setup guy this year. I could be wrong. Either way, the Marlins have some intriguing arms in the pen.

A.J. Ramos and Mike Dunn, I think, will be the main guys. They got the experience last year and did pretty well. Arquimedes Caminero is a hard-thrower with some upside. Later on in the year, Nick Wittgren is a guy for keeper leagues. Wittgren will probably end up being the closer some day. The Marlins have been rushing prospects lately so I wouldn't really rule out Wittgren if he dominates in Spring Training.

Marlins have a deep and promising bullpen. Haven't watched a whole lot of their games, but being a Mets fan, I watched 2 games go 15 and 20 innings respectively against the Marlins, being able to see each team's full bullpen. Ramos would seem to be the best fit for closer role to replace Cishek. Has the traditional closer repertoire. Caminero has great stuff as well, but with Ramos having more MLB innings he would get the first shot I'd assume. Dunn is good but left handed bias.

If Marlins were expected to win a lot of games I'd say Ramos is a solid bet for holds and strikeouts, but without the Ws the holds will be low.
