I agree he or Niemann will be the closer in the future ;-D

Gregg...

Theriot could've started the DP but threw home instead (didn't see the game...read on RW). Granted the score would've been tied on the Weeks double anyway but that loss sure wasn't all Gregg's fault.

What I did see though was the game in Houston in which Gregg notched his first save (in HOU). In that one, Milton Bradley flat out dropped a ball in RF so there shouldn't have been an earned run there.

I'm not saying Gregg is amazing or anything but keep it in perspective...the sad Cub defense has let him down so far.

Anyone have a clue why Ken Macha put his current closer Carlos Villanueva in to pitch in the top of the ninth against the Cubs when he was down a run? From a fantasy perspective as a Villaneuva owner it worked out ok getting a win when the Brewers rallied for two runs against Gregg. But that was a bit unorthodox and I wonder what it says about how Macha might use his pen.

Any thoughts?

Since they were at home there couldn't be a save situation later in the game. He thought Villanueva was their best chance at keeping the game at what it was and giving them a chance to win. It did.

Lindstrom struggled again tonight. Blew the save, threw a ton of pitches.

I think Nunez is closer than people think to taking over that closer position.

Nunez hasnt been much better this year, with his 13.25 ERA and 2.25 WHIP, granted only a few appearances...

I was at yesterday's Cardinals game. When Reyes came in to close, Kyle McClellan was warming in case Reyes got into trouble.

It probably doesn't mean anything, but the Cardinals brass has really liked McClellan since he stole a job last season with an incredible spring. I wouldn't go picking him up or anything, but putting him on a watch list may not be a horrid idea.


That was quick.

Motte gives up 2 baserunners, McClellan in for his first save opp of the season.
