Time to bring this back once again
and toot my own horn. Since many are quick to criticize, but few ever give any credit around here
I was the first to bring this up as a possibility,and no one seemed to give me a hint of respect..
Well look at me now
Brandon Lyon - R - Diamondbacks
Brandon Lyon, who allowed one run in 13 innings this spring, will open the season as Arizona's closer.
Lyon does have some closing experience with Boston in 2003 and has thrown very well this spring, but he probably won't be all that great this year, leaving open the possibility that Greg Aquino or Jose Valverde could overtake him at some point. In the meantime, expect him to have quite a bit of value. Apr. 3 - 7:07 pm et
