Yhency Brazoban was told today that he was being removed from the closer's role. Manager Jim Tracy said he'd use Duaner Sanchez and Steve Schmoll in his place.
Both replacements are weak against lefties, making them less-the-ideal closer candidates. Brazoban will likely get a chance to win his job back if he pitches well, but he should be benched for now. We see Sanchez as a better pickup than Schmoll in fantasy leagues. Aug. 11 - 10:16 pm et

Committee means worthless.

:-┬░ Traded Brazobomb and Shelton about 3 weeks ago. Had a pretty good idea Brazobon would be worthless...he throws all straight fastballs. Doesn't fool anyone.

so his replacement(s) aren't really worth picking up in a fantasy league, that sucks. i need saves in one league since i "lost" foulke and only have guardado left.

I agree. Both Schmoll and Sanchez are not worth picking up.

Two of my better deals:

Brazobomb and Turnbow for Mo.
Brazobomb and Baez for Wagner.

If only I could have worked out a deal in the other league I own him in.

Another reason why the D-Rays should have traded Baez. The market for closers is through the roof.

Why Sanchez and Schmoll over Carrara or Broxton (thier closer of the future?)???

just saw that Brazobán, Schmoll, and Broxton are all rookies, wow.

Even scarier is the fact that Brazobomb did this in the NL West, arguably a division which if you combined the rosters of all the teams you still likely would not be able to to field a lineup that would scare anyone.

Let's try

1. Izturis
2. Giles
3. Helton
4. Kent
5. Alou
6. Glaus
7. Bradley
8. Matheny

With Bonds, Drew, Hernandez on DL thats bout all I got, not great for combing 5 teams.
