I'm really worried about Motte. You try not to overreact, but this situation is different. Motte was never named the closer. Instead, he was just the guy getting the first chance to close games... but a lot of people thought he was going to run away with the job. Some even expected him to rise to elite level status by/in 2010.
But he was just so terrible today, I don't know how much, if any, rope he has left... considering his rope may not have been long to begin with.
Before he came in today, I told someone... this first save will be the most important one he has all year. He needed to set a tone.
