people come to this to get their closer info. If a guy ask why paps did not pitch and was wondering why that is exactley what this site is for. You told him to go somewhere else and look...what is the point on this thread if we we are supposed to go else where to figure this out.

Are you serious dude?.....figure it out.
First off all get it right, it was somebody else who told him to just go look it up himself.
Second, it's just as easy to click on the box score as it is to write a question and wait for the response.
So go look it up so there instead of needless clutter in the thread.

There's a reason they ask for no game commentary. I didn't make the rules up.


Pay attention now.

i dont really see why gonzo deserves to be on the hot seat. the braves just haven't been giving him save opportunities and the other day where he gave up 2 runs can be excused because 1. the game was already out of reach and 2. it was the first time he was pitching in 6 days. you simply cannot let your closer not pitch in a live game-situation for that long because he can't stay in a rhythm. if anything, i would blame that situation on bobby cox, not gonzo. however, with those excuses aside...he will be on a short leash if rafael soriano continues to pitch as well as he is pitching...but for now gonzo is the closer with soriano really the only threat for saves.

I don't buy that, he's had more then one bad outing this year. None have been meltdowns, but 3 out of 5 is cause for concern.

I agree its early, but If Hanarahan is on the hot seat, then gonzo should be also, he's doing almost as bad. He's only had one save op, but he has to do something with his next few ops. With Soriano available why would they wait longer then that? This isn't KRod we're talking about here.

Speculative saves add: I think most likely one of these 2 will end up being the primary closer for the second half, who do you guys think is more likely Motte or Perez?
