Fantasy Game Of The Night: Texas Rangers at Minnesota Twins

Whenever a manager gives a tepid declaration of support for his closer, fantasy players' ears perk-up with the possibility of getting a closer from the free agent pool or via the draft at the price of a mere middle reliever.  Texas Rangers' manager Ron Washington said this about his current closer C.J. Wilson in this morning's Dallas Morning News :

Manager Ron Washington said Tuesday he would "probably" give the ball to Wilson in the Rangers' next save situation. But he didn't commit past that.

In addition to the possibility of a new source of saves for fantasy players, the Rangers are also starting heavy-set reclamation pitching project #1, Sidney Ponson.  (#2 is Bartolo Colon in Boston.  #3 could be David Wells once the Yankees admit their desperate situation.)  He has been nothing less than a revelation so far.  the question is whether he continues to do so.

In honor of the heavy pitcher, here is a Monty Python clip to provide perspective on anyone's weight issues including Ponson, Colon and Wells
