Sometimes the Devines and the Orvellas of the fantasy baseball world become Turnbows. Part of the game.

I don't think that constitutes a blown save.

They instead trade away their top prospect for Renteria, although doing great, we had a viable option with Betemit. If the Braves thought that SS was more important than fixing the bullpen, than the Braves can only blame themselves for the mess they have now. They saw the trouble coming from last year. They thought they addressed the problem with the trade of Estrada? Come on. I don't believe they actually thought either of those guys was gonna be a real boost to the pen.
The guy I've been impressed with so far that seems to have come out of nowhere is Paronto. The guy has good stuff. He doesn't walk batters. He's got more K's than IP. Low BAA. I know CBS doesn't see him as a threat to contend for the closer role right now but, I wouldn't mind mixing it up and giving the big boy a shot. If nothing else he's kinda intimadating to look at which might give him an edge in the 9th. Something has to change. They might as well see what they have with what they've got. Maybe they'll find the diamond in the rough.
