Angels' bullpen now a strength with Street


Recommended Posts

.....The bully was always solid the years we won. Who knows, maybe 2009 goes a different way if we had a real closer?

Fuentes was at least serviceable for most of 09....but he struggled late and was bad in the postseason....Street is the first legit closer we've had since KRod.....

Yeah I mean we had a "closer" in the role after K Rod left, but they were never quite guys that shortened the length of the game like Street and the rest of the bullpen is now doing. They're REALLY getting it done and when you can get a lead before the 6th then bring in a new arm for the next 3 innings that keeps the opposition off balance and we're all beginning to see what kind of advantage it brings to the table.

Teams are sitting there in the 5th inning thinking they still got a couple innings to catch up and before they know it it's the 9th and in 10 pitches the game is over.

Truly an advantage we have missed the past 3+ years. As much as I hate to say it guys like Fuentes and Frieri just never gave me that secure "this game is over" vibe like K Rod, Percy, and now Street is doing.

And most of these guys are under control for next year too, so hopefully the pen won't be a question in 2015.


Just thinking back to this spring when a lot of people were cursing Dipoto for not doing enough to shore up the bullpen. He made his moves, then made more moves as the season moved along. We have a pretty decent GM, IMO.
