Closers are an obsession of the fantasy class. No matter what the Todd Jones and Salomon Torres and Bob Wickmans tell us about the skill set needed to be a successful closer, we cannot stop trying to guess who the next undrafted free agent pick-up will be who turns into a $20 player mid-round draft pick.
Here is a list of current NL closers/Closers-To-Be. However, this is sorted by K/9 and includes each pitcher's BAA. What's it say? Something I'm sure. What that something is is open to interpretation.
Are the BAA's abnormally low for closers? Are the K/9 predictive of job stability?
