Here it is you luscious beauties you! Now I’m not saying this isn’t the greatest thing since sliced bread but….A couple people that rose are Jason Motte and Huston Street. I the past 2 weeks, these 2 have been on fire. I really wanted to see how Street would perform when he came back, and now that I’ve seen it, I believe.  Motte took a little bit to find his groove, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s top 10 by the end of the year. Fernando Rodney just keeps rolling. How is he doing this?! And if you ever had any questions about Rodney’s role when Farsnworth came back, don’t worry, Rodney isn’t going anywhere.  Parnell seems to be locking down the closer job. I have him ranked really low because they keep calling him the “interim”. Never a fan of that, but I wanted to mention his name because he’s competing against Jon Rauch, which isn’t much of a competition. Axford has settled down a bit. I can see him rising steadily over the next month.
