Corpas is the Rockies closer ... for a week
I was a bit perplexed when the dreaded NA showed up next to Brian Fuente's name yesterday. Turns out, Fuentes was put on bereavement leave and word is he could miss up to a full week. (Pisser for me, since I have to play him in my weekly-lineup league through Sunday.) Anyway, the Rockies are saying Corpas will close in his absence. I just picked Manny up in one league, where I figure he'll be a more reliable saves-getter than Ayala (the guy I cut) ... if only for a week.
