Introducing: Closer Watchby Derek Carty
May 10, 2010
You may have noticed the addition to the "Features" box on the THT Fantasy homepage today. Closer Watch is a new feature to THTF that will be handled by Paul Singman and myself. It's essentially a rundown of every 9th inning situation in baseball, giving each team's closer (or interim closer), their job security, and who figures to be next in line should the standing closer be injured, demoted, or need a day off. It will be constantly updated, so be sure to check back often to help manage those tricky bullpen situations.
Derek Carty, 23, has also been published by NBC's Rotoworld, Sports Illustrated, FOX Sports, and USA Today. This season, he'll be contributing to FanDuel and will be linking to all of his work at DerekCarty.com. In his three years competing in expert leagues, he has won 2 titles with 4 top three finishes, including a LABR NL title in 2009, making him the youngest person to ever win a major expert league title. Derek is a proud graduate of the MLB Scouting Bureau's Scout Development Program and is a firm believer in the importance of combining stats and scouting. He welcomes questions via e-mail, Facebook, or Twitter.
