Darn, I guess Reitsma is still the guy. Though it's only a matter of time...

reitsma just pitched the 9th but got pulled for remlinger w/ 2 outs after giving up 1 hit. remlinger got the second batter out and ended it. ATL CL position is a mess.

They're all just keeping the seat warm for Joey Devine. ;-D

Ray, McBride, Reits, or Remlinger could all be getting saves. Who knows. Its definitely a comittee thing right now.

For fantasy owners maybe, but IRL the committee is 2 for 2. ;-D

Ray will end up being the full-time closer here soon. In 16 years of watching the Braves, I don't think I've ever seen Bobby pull his closer in that sort of situation...not Berenguer, Stanton, Wohlers, Rocker, Ligtenberg...whoever. Never seen it done.

McBride might be the answer next season along with Devine, Startup etc., but he's not going to be in there anytime soon. Remlinger can't get lefties out either, and he's getting too old to be used three or four games in a row. I'm hedging on Ray.

They will never appoint a lefty closer full-time.
It ain't Villareal, so you have Ray. I was lucky to have picked him up a week ago in a 17 team league..

And I think the Mets and Blue Jays do, too...

Anyways, McBride got off to a late start after his injury, and IMO he's the best arm in the pen as of now. Ray has been nothing but good, though, and it's hard to see how you can not give him the job at this point. He's being overworked a little though lately, so keep an eye on that. He's pitched in the last 3, too.

Startup was promoted to AAA today, so watch out for him. With Devine hurt, he's my sleeper to grab the job when he gets called up and if Ray struggles.
