H Owens looking like a real closer?

It was nice to see the rookie manager not use Tank in the 8th in preparation of Owens possible blow up. Tank owners should take that as a plus as well. Unfortunately, Owens was left in a bit too long. They were dinky hits but he was hittable. The defense didnt help either so this will probably be a common theme all year.

Probably best to handcuff Tank with Owens if possible.

I dont know `bout you guys---but with the W tonight-I got 2 wins, 3 saves and strong ERA and WHP from this guy since picking him up.
Let him stay in the role I say.

Jorge Julio-R- Marlins May. 8 - 9:44 pm et


Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez reiterated Tuesday that he sees Jorge Julio returning to the closer's role.
Julio pitched two scoreless innings Monday in his first appearance since coming off the DL. "Our plan is for him to be the closer," Gonzalez said. "That’s [what] we got him to be. Our plan is to do that. There’s no time schedule for that. We’ll keep running him out there." Henry Owens will continue to get saves in the meantime. To put it mildly, the Marlins should be in no rush to make a change.

Julio absolutely sucks and Owens is holding it down so why change it?
