Don't worry about Capps.  I've heard that Grilli and Smith look great so far in camp. ;-)

Thanks for the jinx on Capps.

PCL -- State of the Closers

Would love for other PCL owners to grab a position and give it a quick run down for the people on the site here. I've been thinking about closers so let's take a look.

L1 means last year of contract, S1 means option year so player can be extended at the keeper deadline or just kept for this year.  All others have at least two years so won't list their contract.

For ML teams with obvious closers, I'll list only one player. For teams where there is a battle, I'll list the top 2 or 3.


Wizards of Oz (my team): Ziegler (2:S1), Familia(10), Quackenbush (1)

Broad Street Bullies: Knebel (3), Hoover (1)

Brubaker Yeasts: Ramos (2:S1)

Garry Oaks: Papelbon (16)

Gashouse Gang: Casilla (5:S1)

Lords of Flatbush: JuDiaz (3)

Lynch Mob: Jansen (23)

Original Oracles: Rodney (12), Rondon (2:S1), Jeffress (2), Motte (12),

Palin Comparisons: Capps (2), Grilli (10), Cingrani (3), DaHernandez (1), WSmith (2), JimJohnson (2)

Ribbie and Roobarb: Vizcaino (12)

Teams with no closers: Choes Ballin, Fisher Catamounts

Free Agents available in auction: Rosenthal, McGee, Velasquez, Melancon,

A little.

I had Rodney last year. It's going to take a while.

It turns out that Rodney is $12, not $1, so we're safe. We don't have to freeze him.

Feel better, Alex?

I did this before realizing we were inheriting Fernando Rodney at a dollar. Is it too late to reconsider?

So PCL is back for another season.

1) The rules are basically 12 team 23x260, max 15 keepers. 10 man reserve.

One new rule change is that minor league players contracts don't age on the reserve list until they are a) activated by their major league club prior to September 1st or b) activated by their PCL club.

2) The other big change is that Peter and Alex have picked up the team that we had available (Slyke's old team). We're very excited to have these guys in place.

3) Our auction will be the night of April 7th with a keeper deadline of March 31st.
