FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: ALREADY CHAOS IN OAKLAND NINTH INNING

Oaklans A's manager Bob Melvin has taken the early lead in being the manager who will make those chasing saves the most crazy as he said on Wednesday that he could use "multiple" options in the ninth inning this season.  While incumbent Ryan Madson returns in 2017, the A's also still have former lefty closer Sean Doolittle and also brought in former San Francisco Giants stopper Santiago Casilla over the winter.  Even prior to this new, Madson was one of the most shaky fantasy baseball closers out there as his stuff has not been the same since his early Philadelphia Phillies saves as a result of some serious arm/shoulder injuries.  Doolittle is very capable but he too has injury problems and as a lefty is more likely headed for setup duty.  Casilla is one to watch closely but we have seen his mediocre closing game before.  We could be guessing here for awhile.
