2014-09-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Sam, Which non-closers should I pick up now on the chance they will close in 2015?
(Cal Guy from Cal)
Wade Davis, Ken Giles, Kevin Jepsen, Bruce Rondon... though not necessarily closing in April 2005. Trying to figure out who is going to close for the Giants next year. Who's going to close for the Giants next year? I'll say Jason Motte is going to close for the Giants next year. Enjoy this prediction, Giants fans and fantasy owners, I wrote it just for you! (Sam Miller)
2011-05-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you think is the next guy to nab a closer job? I'm talking about unheralded guys like John Axford last year as opposed to the sexy setup guys from the preseason like Daniel Bard and Jake McGee.
(Aaron from YYZ)
I'll say Kevin Jepsen of the Angels. (John Perrotto)
