I do think that Waldrop might be a better "near lock" than Anthony Swarzak, who I believe has gotten too much acclaim for his performance last year.
While I agree with you, I believe Swarzak's acclaim comes from his flexibility - jumping from long relief to short relief to starter when needed.

I sure hope your right. I believe Jared Burton and Matt Maloney at this point are locks too. I was really hoping for Gutierrez to make it as well but maybe some more time in Rochester would do him some good. Gutierrez has way more upside than Maloney that is for sure.
