I have Mariano (who's not doing so great, but you know it's just a matter of time) and also George Sherrill (who's been hot and cold). Of the closers that were available, the reports were pretty favorable for none other than Ryan Franklin. So, in a desperation move, I picked him up. Imagine my glee when I got home tonight just in time to see Franklin record his 5th save of the season.
Oh, and the pitcher he save the game for tonight (vs the Braves)?
... Joel Pineiro - who has won his first four starts of this young season.
edit to add: Joel is the first Cardinal pitcher to win his first four starts since Matt Morris (didn't catch the date)
