No that’s not the bat boy, that’s Wesley Wright

While a closer battle for a team like the Astros sounds more like “veal” than “beef,” it’s worth pointing out that there are only so many saves out there. You can’t turn your nose up at closers on ****** teams, especially when they will be available for dirt cheap on draft/auction day.
Fortunately, the Sons of Roto have staged a vicious deathmatch between the four Houston RPs vying for your ownership.
More after the jump:
Grappler: Wesley Wright
Strengths: Good fastball-slider combo, generates a lot of grounders (54.9 GB%), and pitched in late innings for Houston last year with good results (9.29 K/9 and 2.92 BB/9).
Weaknesses: Left-handed, so late inning matchups could keep team from using him as full-blown closer.
Signature Move: “The Wright Stuff” (jams a metal jair up your ass)
Grappler: Fernando Rodriguez
Strengths: Averaged 93.9
