The Bad Idea Closer

Hey, did you hear the one about Mike Pelfrey being the closer next season?

Here’s my take: It’s a really bad idea.

But if you’d like a more in-depth take on this Pelfrey-as-closer kerfuffle, might I recommend the writings of Ted Berg over at TedQuarters and Eno Sarris over at Amazin’ Avenue, both of whom use their abilities to write smart things about baseball to explain why this is a bad idea.
