Prime Relief Pitchers
3. Greg Holland -Kansas City Royals
Holland’s 1.21 ERA is just icing on the top of Greg Holland’s cake. Holland was 2nd in the league in Saves with 47, Holland is kind of the underrated closer in Baseball, however I believe Holland is one of the most dominant, as this list shows!
2. Kenley Jansen – Los Angeles Dodgers
Jansen is a whole pitcher, now what does whole mean? A closer with an ERA under 2.00, giving up less than 10 homeruns, and records more than 100 strikeouts, Jansen has all of those credentials, I enjoy watching closers pitch, they do it with such elegance, Jansen is no execption.
**1.** Craig Kimbrel – Atlanta Braves
Kimbrel deserved to be MLB’s prime Relief Pitcher, Kimbrel has led the NL in Saves for Three years in a row now, and I bet that extension he received last month put i smile on his face! Kimbrel only gave up 4 homeruns this year (The Mets never seem to have a problem with Kimbrel though!). Kimbrel gives an “Im ten times better than you” look to all the opposing batters, and it seems to work!
Well, that wraps up the Relivers! Next up is First Baseman on Thursday, and dont forget to check in later to watch a new “Pepper Show” tonight!
