I agree with Tony Clark... Cruz doesn't have closer mentality. Most latin fireballers (I'm not being racist am I) have great K ability but don't make it as closers because they don't have control. There are of course exceptions, but for the most part they just walk too many people. Reitsma has been pretty bad but he has control, and like somebody said - Leo Mazzone. Also, I'm not sure of his BIPA (I'm on a school computer - don't have my handy excel files available) but judging by his .283 OppBA over the past 2 seasons, it seems to be higher than it should be which could be a sign that his ERA is inflated. Regardless though... this is the Braves and they really should have a proven closer. Urbina or Benitez would seem ideal. Initially I thought Smoltz was being sincere when he said being a SP would put less stress on hs elbow since it's only once every 5 days, but after seeing the $3M+ he'd get if they switched him into the rotation, I believe he had ulterior motives for those comments.
