Leo Nunez still the closer?

Judging by what Fredi said yesterday, expect to see Leo Nunez to remain as the "closer"

"Those pitches in the ninth inning, really, they don’t bother me as much as the eighth inning when you’ve got two outs and we walk a couple of guys,’’ Gonzalez said, "because that top of the order doesn’t come up in the ninth if we take care of business in the eighth. That’s the inning I’m more upset about.’’

True enough.  However, Nunez has got to learn to keep the ball in the park which is something he hasn't been real good at lately.  It doesn't matter who is in the outfield if all they can do on a batted ball is admire the distance it went into the crowd.  Keep it inside the fences Leo.
