ATL fans Reisma blows another one-Whose up in the pen

Is it Devine?-Sosa?
They can't go on like this they've blown like 15 or 20 late inning leads

Devine flopped early on but might get another call up eventually. Villarreal is also not the answer.

Someone in the Game Commentary forum mentioned Kenny Ray getting a shot. He's been doing well, 3 runs in 20 IP.

The whole Braves bullpen is a mess. It's sad, really :-t

Closer groupies kill me. People won't be happy until guys like Devine or Orvella are on their rosters, designated as closers, and killing their ratios. Be careful what you wish for.

It's nowhere near as bad as you are suggesting. Most of our problems can be attributed to one man, Chris Reeksma. The rest have been, in the main, solid. Even Vulturreal has looked good at times despite throwing the odd junk pitch. He'll be fine.

Ray, Cormier, James, Paronto have all at one time or another looked very very good.

Reitsma will hold onto his job for now, it's the Bobby Cox way. After that look out for Kenny.

Yeah, this is certainly a tired thread, but I can't resist commenting. I am convinced Villareal is going to get the job. Before blowing out his arm he was very solid in AZ and he appears helathy. His K rate sucks and WHIP aint great, but he seems to get the job done. Devine is NOT getting the job this year, maybe Sosa but the Braves need him in the rotation and he pitched great on Thursday. Last thought, Peter Gammons earlier in the year wrote about Villareal really praising him, calling him the future Braves closer

I dont understand how it could be villareal... He has 4 blown saves this year and his ERA is terrible.

I vote Kenny go kennY!

Sometimes the Devines and the Orvellas of the fantasy baseball world become Turnbows. Part of the game.

Sosa won'tbe closer. He'd be worse than Reitsma, and they need starters right now... McBride or Ray are the best choices, but neither are that good.

Villareal's ERA is 3.26, hardly terrible. You would have a much better case talking about his 1.46 WHIP, but thats not exactly terrible either.

Im guessing you're a Ray owner.
