I wrote a longer piece for Bloomberg Sports about the Oakland bullpen situation now that closer Andrew Bailey is clutching his forearm, but the strategy point is important. You can get a leg up on other fantasy baseball managers by getting elite closers – but the closer role is so specific, and only closers get saves, and yet it’s a volatile position. This mix says to me that I want an elite one to keep my ratios down, and then I want to mitigate my risk by picking the rest of my closers later and going with quantity over quality. I always find saves on the wire – it’s not hard – so stock your team up with late-round closer fliers (like Brian Fuentes and Grant Balfour in Oakland’s case). Then you’ll own the guy that becomes the closer and won’t have to beat everyone to the wire.
