I really do hope Motte keeps the job for I own him in both of my leagues, however, if I were a Candinals fan, i'd be more than worried...

Motte just looks...funny...looks like he should be riding a skateboard and not throwing straight 96mph fastballs down the middle on a 0-2 count :-X

Someone to keep an eye out for is Jess Todd of the Cards as he has now been converted to relief and should see time in the majors this years. He's got great stuff.

Jason Motte unavailable tonight
From Rotoworld:
Apr. 7 - 6:27 pm et
Jason Motte is unavailable for Tuesday's game after throwing nearly 30 pitches on Monday.

Ryan Franklin didn't pitch at all on Monday and is the best bet to get the call in a closing situation.
