There is a lot of talk out there on the various websites, indicating that Jenks could very well lose his closing job to Neal Cotts.

Before Jenks' 4 run inning on March 23rd, he was actually having a pretty decent preseason.

He did not lose 10 mph on his fastball, as reported last week. He has most definitely had control issues, and Guillen is concerned.

My opinion: if you have Jenks on your fantasy team, hold on. But, if you can, pick up Cotts as an emergency option.

Nice pickup by Dr. Rub of Cotts, by the way, in our BGeeks league... and before Jenks' outing on the 23rd. Kudos to you!

I had read some reports that Jenks had lost some velocity on his fastball. I also heard he was struggling with his control this spring & that Ozzie Guillen was thinking about giving Cotts a shot to close. So I took a chance on Cotts. I damn sure need him to close because all I really have is Reitsma & he could be a gamble or a bust. I also picked Mercker up thinking the Reds might give him a shot to close some games since they don't really have a bonified closer.

Thanks for the kudos by the way. It's nice to hear that from a fantasy baseball jedi like yourself. Maybe I don't look like a complete dumbass now after that meteocre draft I had.

Jenks will be the closer until he falters. And agreed if Cotts is available, pick him up as a safety option.
