FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: RED SOX OFFICIALLY ACQUIRE JOEL HANRAHAN FROM PIRATES

The Boston Red Sox have officially acquired closer Joel Hanrahan from the Pittsburgh Pirates for a package containing Mark Melancon, Jerry Sands, and others.  Hanrahan will immediately be entrusted to close games for the Red Sox over injury-prone Andrew Bailey, while Jason Grilli will inherit the ninth inning for the Pirates.

Analysis:  Two things:  one is that Hanrahan is a top five closer in 2013 fantasy baseball which means if you listen to our advice against drafting stoppers early, he won't be on your roster.  Second is that Grilli becomes a big time sleeper as he has been a dominant setup guy the last two seasons and makes for the perfect closer with upside to grab later in the draft.
