The Atlanta Braves lost to the San Francisco Giants Tuesday with Luke Jackson on the mound in a closer role. Jon Chuckery got a chance to talk to Gabe Burns, who covers the Braves for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Jon is uber-tired of the Jackson experiment as the closer. Burns didn't help Chuckery's blood pressure.

"I do not think it will be anytime soon," Burns responded in terms of when the Luke Jackson experiment would be coming to an end.

Chuckery wholeheartedly believes that the Braves' answer to their problem is already on the roster.

That shining light in the bullpen has been Sean Newcomb. And for now, it seems like the Braves may continue with the rotational approach at closer.
