You mean like Sosh did yesterday?

My thought with Smith is that he's always been pretty much a setup guy.

He also has FOUR blown saves in 5 opps.

I'd try Jepsen to Smith to Morin.

While it's true that neither Smith nor Morin are heat throwers, they have different pitching styles and out pitches.

I would use Morin and Smith for closer in a rotation based on situations and see who comes out ahead. The other can set up.


Frieri used only for mop up duty.


If a reliever is available at the deadline that won't cost us one of our key youngsters you have to look at it.

Smith -- realistically,is there any other option?


Went to Texas-Angels games on Friday 6/19 and 6/20.

Halos won both games.


And, in both games, the first Halos pen guy to come into the game promptly gave up a HR to the first hitter the pen guy faced.....


Joe Smith is really the only option at closer.
