If you're unsure what a closer is, he is the pitcher that comes in usually in the ninth inning to finish the game. He usually is a big pitcher that
throws alot of heat. If his team is up by one, two, or three runs when he finishes the game, he earns a "save".
TRD, thats why I was telling you to get a reliever in our fantasy league. A starting pitcher usually only pitches once every five games, where the
closer has the opportunity to pitch every night. He usually only pitches one inning, but he still gets 10 points for a save. You will rarely see a
team use their closer when they are losing.
