In fantasy baseball, the closer’s role experiences the most turnover over the course of a season. Every year, guys who appear to be locks for high-end production fall off and get replaced. It is truly a never-ending battle for any fantasy owner. Sure, Kenley Jansen, Aroldis Chapman, and Craig Kimbrel exist, but a premium price must be paid on Draft Day if an owner wants a virtual lock for a closer.
As we approach Thanksgiving, now is a great time to say thanks for all the things I am grateful for in the baseball world. First, a huge thank you to Mike Hazen and 2017 NL Manager of the year Torey Lovullo for turning around the Diamondbacks. Thank you, Archie Bradley for lighting this fan base on fire.
