DateQuestionAnswer
2012-11-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Ben, I think that the question-er was hinting at the pending deal between the Phillies and Astros that has Wilton Lopez being sent to Phillies for prospects. Most people, ok fine, some people are wondering who Astros have left in the bullpen to close if Lopez is indeed dealt.
(jlarsen from chicago)
Oh! Excuse my ignorance of recent rumors--today has been busy. In that case...man. Wesley Wright had one save last year. That makes him the incumbent! (Ben Lindbergh)
