This post is proof that bullpen setup man is the most under appreciated job in baseball. Nobody notices when you do your job but they remember those one or two times you didn't get the job done. Crain has been very solid this year and has been an excellent bridge to get to Reed. There are plenty of contending clubs that would love to have a guy like him in their bullpen. However, I don't see the D backs giving up Goldschmidt for him along with an aging Paulie.
The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done." -George Carlin
