Rocky Biddle might contend for the title.

I'd say Biddle has been holding the title for a while, ick. :-P

Biddle is a runaway. Chacon is definitely not good. Nothing much positive to say about Koch the last two seasons, but he's at least preferable to those two.

Herges has been horrible as well. There are a number of bad closers

come to think of it :-? there are a number of bad closers who could compete for the title, maybe we could do a "survivor" type game for the "worst closer to survive from being domoted the longest", lol.

Koch, hands down. Biddle plays for Montreal, not a real baseball team, and Herges is a backup.

Why would they intentionally walk Edgar Martinez who had 2 strikes on him already to load the bases? Now you give Cabrera fresh count still with a guy on third with 1 out. I think you are putting more pressure on a Koch who was already unglued. He almost lost the game on a wild pitch to Cabrera. I just dont agree with loading the bases in a tie game...it never seems to work....especially in this situation when he was 1 strike away from having two outs.

Yep there sure is

and his name is Rocky Biddle.

Koch had actually been very good as a closer in May. I guess he is challenging Chacon for second now though :-D
