My Opinion... Closers are overrated and underrated at the same time.
I believe that many pitchers possess the make up and ability to be closers... I dare say that there are probably better closer options then Matt Capps setting up on other squads. Yet Teams will shell out big money to acquire them. This makes them overrated.
However, Watching Ron Davis do his thing and knowing that when the closer blows it. The team rarely has enough time to come back. This Makes them underrated. It's the sticking with the bad ones that drives you nuts.
I hope Capps keeps getting the job done. Build up his value and then move him for prospects if a decent offer comes along and then give the job to Perkins. Hopefully Perk builds up some value and then repeat the process and move on to the next.
I will probably get attacked for saying that.
Either way it's a tough job. Fans almost always denegrate them.

That was an Guardado-esque save today by Capps!"Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Sometimes it rains."
