After the Braves bullpen pieced together three shutout innings last night and featured a trio of guys that didn't start the season in Atlanta, John Fricke and Hugh Douglas spoke about the situation the bullpen finds itself in.

Fricke began, "We got Jerry Blevins for $1, he pitched well last night. Jacob Webb had 18 saves down in the minors, gets his first major league save last night, Webb's gonna get a chance to be your closer. We're just going to be doing it by committee, it's worse than by committee actually, this is bullpen by audition."

Hugh Douglas added a possible promotional idea for the team, "Braves should hold a "Who Wants To Be A Closer" night."

They chat about what confidence they would have in A.J. Minter even if he does start to lock things down rotuinely.
