    i feel your pain, westside... i really do.
    +1, thanks.

    1. Atlanta Braves

    To have a shutdown bullpen, you have to have a dominant closer, and the Braves' Craig Kimbrel is coming off one of the greatest seasons ever for a reliever: Opposing hitters had 231 plate appearances against him, and he struck out 116 -- almost exactly half -- in 62 2/3 innings, with just 14 walks and 27 hits. When he threw strike one on the first pitch of the at-bat (147 of those 231 plate appearances), hitters went 16-for-143, with 97 strikeouts and one extra-base hit. Here's one more: After hitters got ahead in the count, they went 5-for-32, with 10 strikeouts. Just one more: With two outs and runners in scoring position, opposing hitters were 1-for-18 with 10 strikeouts.

    In other words, Kimbrel is the best closer in the game, and, at the outset of his career, he has established an unprecedented trajectory: Nobody has been this good so soon.

    The market would have to collapse for Bourn.

    Yeah I think Bourn ends up with the Rangers or Cubs.

    I'm still calling Cubs but it could be the Dodgers if they trade Ethier.

    They wouldn't move Kemp to a corner OF spot, even though it would be a good move for them to do so.

    Yeah, that deal talk has died down as the days go by, not saying it won't happen for sure but it doesn't look likely. Bourn will be a Brave (not likely) or Cub unless Boras really pulls something out of his ***.
