BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2001 In the fine tradition of Gus Gandarillas and Ryan Brannan, Future Closers of America presents...Gabe Molina! Molina was thrown into the B.J. Surhoff deal and was one of the few ambulatory people in the Braves' organization not given a real chance in the Atlanta pen. Great relievers aren't made or born, folks; they just happen.
2000 The stocky right-hander made three trips to Baltimore last season, and until the final week against the Yankees and Red Sox, he performed well. In Rochester he closed, riding a tough slider to 18 saves; he won't be a closer in the majors, even if he did get a few cracks at it during the Orioles' great summer bullpen meltdown.
1999 Started the season as Bowie's co-closer, but since he was doing the job and Kohlmeier wasn't, took the job for himself at mid-season. Not big enough to be considered a real prospect, doesn't throw hard enough to be a real prospect (relies on a changeup), and he got his head handed to him in Arizona.
