Since Steve Frey signed with the Giants does anyone have any idea who
the closer will be for the California Angels?
The Sporting News Fantasy Baseball Owner's Guide says it will still
be bullpen by committee. I can't remember all the names they listed,
but Mike Butcher was mentioned.

The only good Padre is an ex-Padre.
What nonsense! It occurs to me that Rollie Fingers looked like he should
have been playing a banjo on a riverboat. Dan Quisenberry looked like he
should have worn a green eye-shade and calculated a balance sheet for a
Fortune-500 company. Kent Tekulve looked like he should have been leading
a pack of boy scouts through the wilderness. Sure, there are some "mean"
looking closers like Dibble, Lee Smith, and the old Goose Gossage ... but
I've seen a ton of guys who looked like closers but pitched like Tom
Browning <grin> ...
