    best closer in baseball?

    Who is the best closer in baseball?? the homer in me wants to say kimbrel cause he is just downright nasty and if u compare his stats to the other closers with high saves his stats blow them away. He also is just a strike throwing machine and if he gets 2 strikes on u u mine as well just walk back to the dugout.

    thought?

    Has always been Mo.


    Thus far this year it's been......guess who? Jim Johnson from Bal, surprising, right? But small sample size.


    Overall, if it isn't MO. It's easily Kimbrel.

    Jim Johnson should be a starter, not a closer.

    I would say Kimbrel. But then you also have Jim Johnson, Huston Street, Ryan Cook, and Fernando Rodney having jaw-dropping seasons as well.

    But what do you guys think of Kenley Jansen?

    I barely noticed until now that Ernesto Frieri has a 0.00 ERA, but he's only been in 26 games.
