Will Wickman stay Closer in Atlanta?

Postby cottdc4 » Tue Jul 31, 2007 6:32 pm

In light of the trade for Dotel, will the Braves stay with Wickman as their Closer or will Dotel assume the position?

They will probably stick with WIckman but his job security isn't as great now

It's not as if Dotel is a lights out closer... but any closer experience is a threat to Wicky. I would keep an eye on this but I wouldn't fret too much about it myself.

the braves were receptive to trades involving wickman. nothing was done, but it sheds doubt on wickman's grip on the role. it's his right now, but the leash is very short. for dotel to get the job, he'll need to maintain great stats while wickman has about 2 or 3 more bad outings.
