Teams win at an amazing rate when leading by 1 run heading to the 9th.
I have to be honest I'm surprised there's no "closer by committee" talk coming from Jim and DD. If this team had won the world series, I think that would be 100% their plan going into 2013. They showed against the Yankees how much more sense it makes to not be locked into one guy to finish the game off. We had close games where we got to face Cano and Ibanez with a lefty instead of Valverde because we weren't locked into one guy for the job. You'd take the pressure off of everyone in the bullpen to not have a "closer". Jim would never make that walk when Coke has a 1-2-3 8th and a lefty is leading off the 9th just because he has to put his closer in to start the 9th. It still really surprises me that such "Great baseball minds" would limit their decision making process like thatPut me on record. Prince Fielder will still OPS 850+ in years 7-8-9 of this contract. (sucks that my signature has to stay this for 7 years now)

Oliver will be 25 next season, and has been moved to the bullpen now. Howell is pretty much the exact comp one would cite as an ideal outcome for Oliver now.“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” Sam Adams, 1776
