I worked for the WMC a few times. You dropped two players, so i am guessing you are going to snag someone off of waivers. Who could it be? A certain closer on Chicago?
Hell yeah, Ultra was fun. This year was the 11th, and you still can't beat Paul Van Dyk's closing set. I've heard it was badass during its early years, since it was held on the beach?

Anyway, I considered Gregg but here's a protip (from watching the Marlins): he's not a good closer. He struggles to put guys away, and he can't dominate an inning at all! Not going to waste my waiver priority on him since I think Marmol will have the job in a month or so. Yeah, I'm using my waiver priority to shore up some other areas. Good relievers are a dime a dozen, and the closer role is very fluid throughout the season.

. we will see how it works out. damon and holliday are decent at sb as well. damn sheets was a horrible pick, but i hope he will get to play.
Don't expect many SBs from Holliday. Guys in Oakland don't generally steal, it's not in the team's philosophy. With that being said, though, you have two solid closers and a decent third. You probably won't have to sweat saves.
