    Looking to make move for a closer, and I'm wondering how to evaluate Kimbrel. How confident are folks that he will hit the ground running when he signs? How do you think he will compare to Treinen once he come back? I'm pursuing both, but the ask for Treinen is much higher. I'm wondering if he is owrth the premium over Kimbrel.

    I'd be leery of Kimbrel this year - especially if you don't need a black swan to win a title.

    but if you do need one of those, an outside chance he is that.

    With Hicks losing more control seemingly every appearance, do you think Carlos Martinez might have a shot to sneak into the closer’s role by the end of the year? Or maybe a mix and match with him and Andrew Miller?

    roster resource is hedging on their choice of the baltimore closer. any of the SIX may get the job...

    Looking over this team's roster - bullpen, rotation, lineup - it's hard to fathom that they were in the 2016 wildcard game

    No pitcher is safe tonight in the Pirates-Brewers extra-inning slugfest as Hader and Vasquez both suffer their first blown save of the season.

    Cubs now showing interest in Kimbrel. Ben Zobrist going to the restricted list may have given the Cubs some extra money to spend.

    Strop gets the save for the Cubs a few hours after being activated from the IL. Seems like Maddon missed his closer.

    If Boston doesn't make a play for Kimbrel does anyone else think Workman eventually rises to the top for saves?

    And then the Cubs sign Kimbrel a few hours after Strop gets the save. Such is the life of a closer.
