While you're right that there's no way to predict if a team will play a lot of games that will end in a save situation, teams in a very balanced division (as the NL West appears to be this year) are more likely to have a lot of close games among their division rivals (which is a lot of games thanks to the unbalanced schedule). Of course, anything can happen. That's why they play the games.One correction, Ubergerbil...Valverde is now the closer for the Houston Astros, which (I guess..in theory...) changes his value a bit. I personally dont buy into whether or not it does...since theres no reliable way to tell if a team is going to play "close games" or not. Though the astros have the potential to be a bad bad bad team.

What has Juan Pierre done for anyone lately?
