DateQuestionAnswer
2008-07-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you see as the front runner for the Pirates closer job? Do they have a closer in waiting in the minors?
(GilGaucho from Orange, Ca)
I'd like to see Damaso Marte get the shot. Tyler Yates pitched the ninth last night, but that's only because Marte was getting the night off. If you look at the metrics, though, Marte has been their best reliever lately. The only problem with him is that he was rumored to be on the trade block. If I'm the Pirates, I keep my focus on the long-term plan and still deal him if the price is right. I don't see anyone in the minors that's a ready replacement for that role. (Jeff Erickson)
