NL EAST

Atlanta Braves- John Smoltz

post updates and comments here... if someone wants to add a list of probable replacements (such as Nunez and Spooneybarger for Looper, Remlinger for Alfonseca, etc...), we could add to that list as well in this topic

To sticky a thread hit the edit button on the first post and then below the Preview and Submit buttons you will see options for Normal, Announcement, and Sticky, something like that...change it to sticky and hit Submit and you should be all set. ;-)

Like I said before. I think having this is a good idea. It will help when closers get hurt, falter or get traded.

Being a Padre fan I really doubt they would take Perez out of the rotation since he's one of our top 3 starters.

Im in Boston and I really dont think Embree is going to be the closer. He is the only lefty in the pen. I think Chad Fox is the darkhorse on this one, but mgmt seems pretty enthusiastic about the commitee approach.
