on the contrary, I don't see Kolb holding onto his closer job for too much longer. Danny Kolb is a guy I went after in every league last year and a guy I avoided like the plague this year. Up until his breakout 2003 and 2004, Danny Kolb was never any good. He never showed any promise throughout his career to ever be an effective major league closer and abobe all else, he strikes out NO one.
To say you can't see him in a set-up role is wrong imo, There is no way the Braves keep Kolb as their closer for much longer, the Brewers pulled the old fantasy baseball trick in my mind.
Whilt Kolb is not this bad, he is not as good as his stats the last 2 years show imo. I expect his ERA to be in the mid to upper 4's and I think he will be yanked from the 9th inning job very soon. With all that said, Resithma dosen't exactly impress me either and I'm not even sure he can be that much better then Kolb throughout the whole year. My guess is Resithma gets a shot at closing and does just decent and the Braves trade for a closer at the deadline.
