I don't think you get 9 saves in the first three weeks by accident. He's got some nasty stuff. His control can be off, though. He's still young, and there's reason to believe the control can be improved. I think he's pretty secure in the closers role unless he starts getting rocked, but that's true of any second-tier closer. Who else are the DB's gonna use? Aquino? I doubt it.

My sentiments exactly. I even think he is better than Kolb. But that is my opinion.
