With Arizona closer Chad Qualls dislocating his kneecap in tonight's game, the D'Backs will need a new closer. I'd endorse Juan Gutierrez as the first pickup, but you might want to keep an eye on Esmerling Vazquez and Clay Zavada. Definitely listen to what the D'Backs say over the next 24 hours, as this isn't a terribly clear cut situation.

Predicting breakouts are the key to fantasy success and these two outfielders have been the key to many teams in 2009. Raul Ibanez should have been expected to grow increase his power after moving to the bandbox that is Citizens Bank Park, but his first half was beyond anyone's expectations. Across the country Andre Ethier was expected to grow with Manny Ramirez back in LA, but a season on pace for 30 homers in Dodgers Stadium wasn't one many expected.
