Matt Capps entered today’s game for his first save opportunity since taking over as closer of the Minnesota Twins. The good news, he was given a three run lead and got the save. The bad news, he gave up a bomb to Luke Scott.
This will be the problem with Capps. He has become a contact pitcher and no longer has the zip to get the ball past good hitters on a consistent basis.
His time as closer will be short, so enjoy the roller coaster while you can and invest in some Pepcid AC!
