I like Capps, but how much work does an all-star closer get when you're playing at a .350 pace?
Hammer has been very good as well. See, now we're up to three position players, one SP, and there are 3-4 guys in the pen who should feel safe.
I assumed he was a given since he was here last year. The pen is a great improvement but if we don't get some real starters to back up Stras and a better lineup to help all of them, they are only slightly less useless than Capps.
You guys are taking me too literally. This team has definitely made strides over last season, but they were nowhere near as big as a lot of people wanted to believe during the first six weeks of this season.
