Closer by Committee

A dedicated closer is stupid. The idea that you only have one ninth inning guy is stupid.

Use the best guy for the moment.

Otherwise, you’ll be leaving Britton in the pen while Ubaldo gives up the game-winning homer over and over.

This is probably the best post that I've read from you.

It worked last night. Pretty much the same 3-4 relievers that we would’ve expected to pitch in a close game at the beginning of the season. Just in a different order. Kimbrel, Webb, Perez, and Cano. 

Cano looked just fine in the 9th inning. Kimbrel got to face the bottom of the lineup mostly in the 7th although he ran into Ketel.
