The Braves are sharing the wealth of bad closers that they had for a while (Our closers the last few years have been decent to good but there was a stretch I want to say from when Smoltz returned to the starting line up to 2010 where we had a lot of subpar, injured or inconsistent closers).

Glad the Braves are doing well so far this year (last team with only one loss), we'll see how they do through the season with a strong in division opponent. So far the Uptons have been doing well for us. Pau Maholm is also one of two starting pitchers to have not given up a run (the other being Kershaw for the Dodgers)


I think Craig Kimbrel solves your problem.


Oh I like Kimbrel. It was some of his predecessors who had trouble. We've been solid at the closer spot for a few years now and the difference has shown in our record.


The Braves entire bullpen is scary. O'Flaherty is like kryptonite to Utley and Howard.

Like I said earlier, the Braves are my pick to win the World Series. Mike Minor looks pretty good in the early going. Teheran had a good spring. They'll get another veteran starter by the trade deadline and there really isn't a need to upgrade anywhere else. That young catcher (Gettis?) is playing well too.

Anibal Sanchez set a Tiger's and Interleague record for strikeouts in a game with 17 against the Atlanta Braves in Detroit's 10-0 home victory.

Sox are doing very well. Again, this season depends 100% on our pitching...our offense, especially with Papi who's 14-27 since he's come back, will be there.

Ortiz has been very very impressive (he's on my fantasy team). It looks like as he gets older he gets better. Or uses better PEDs.

Lester and Bucholz are doing great. Dubront and Dempster meh. Lackey super sucks. Next move from the GM is probably get Bedard again and probaly Ubaldo.

#STLCards rotation: 14-4, 2.08 ERA. And the bullpen? 0-5, 5.37 ERA. 5 of 9 losses have come when Cards led or were tied heading into 7th.

I'm just happy to see the Rangers rolling early.
With the off season changes there were some doubters.

Of course, for all the fast starting teams... there's a long way to go.
AL West looks wicked, even with another slow start from the Angels.

Salas has been sucking since last year, I don't know how much more time Matheny is going to keep him. Redfsahgcsinzky is supposed to be very good, what's happening to him?

Scrabble was down a bit last year. Boggs is just plain horrible. I don't know if he has options for a trip to AAA or not.

In potentially good news, Motte did long toss 2 days in a row, so hopefully he doesn't have to have Tommy John.

Does that mean that Mujica will not be the closer for long? I have him in my fantasy team :(

I would be surprised to see Motte throwing in major league games before June 1, much less closing them. He basically has to go through the whole spring training process to build up arm strength, assuming he doesn't have to resort to the surgery.
