I wasn't saying those guys aren't solid bullpen members, they just aren't really closer or even set up candidates. To be fair I never really viewed Kintzler as a closer type either


Well then we are probably more or less in agreement. Should we argue about something else, then? Uhh... red enchiladas or green?

I'm not sure it's really fair to make that statement about a few guys who haven't even had a full season yet. There's ample reason to think they will all improve, and they have the peripheral stats to say they can do it.

 

Personally, I could care less about who is in the 9th inning. I'm far more concerned about the 3-5 guys who consistently come in during innings 6-8. That is where we need shut down guys. I'm fairly confident in Hildy at this point, and think that both Busenitz and Curtiss can get there, but I want at least one more (if not two) option that is reliable. If the guys in the minors get healthy and force it, then we have a nice problem. But I'm not sure how much I'd rely on guys like Jay, Burdi, Melotakis,,and Chargois at this point. I think you can safely expect one to emerge (none of whom should be expected to contribute out of ST), beyond that, it's a crap shoot.

Depends on what you're using as a protein. Both are good, I also like a sour cream based sauce especially if we're talking seafood enchiladas. I'm from Texas, we take our enchiladas seriously
