Who has the best Bullpen in the National League?

Padres (Hoffman, Otsuka, Linebrink, Neal) have a very good one. So do the Cards (Isringhausen, King, Kline, Tavarez, Calero, etc)), Marlins (Benitez, Mota, Seanez, etc) and Phils when healthy, which hasn't happened much (Wagner, Worrell, Madson, Cormier, Rodriguez).

 

I'd pick the Cards because of their 2 lefties and their good mix of styles.

Pads and Cards in a dead heat for first

 

Marlins are pretty close right now with 5 solid arms out of the pen now

 

Dodgers' pen was killed by DePodesta, they suck now and Gagne is getting overused and destroyed.

Talent: Phillies (until the injuries this month), Marlins (post-Mota,Seanez trades), White Sox

 

Performance: Cardinals, Rangers, Orioles (pre-Grimsley trade, Rodrigo Lopez to the rotation)

I don't know, I wonder if we can get stats for each pen strictly after the trade deadline

 

I'd think ours was the best.

I'm not gonna go looking for those :mischief

 

I would think the Marlins would have the best pen (I'm not for sure) after the trade deadline but one would think the Best Bullpen should be from all year :thumbup

I think the best pen is the Marlins, there the best ilate with the best Closer and Setup man in the NL, plus with Seanez and koch in the middle not too bad, there is no lefty in the pen besides Perisho that can hurt.but if the pitcher goes 6 or 7 with mota and benitez in the 8th and 9th i dont see alot of times youd need a lefty.

 

Best depth in the pen Padres iwth Hoffman and Otsuka and Linebrink with sub-2.00 ERAs before Sunday. Also Witasick and Neal pitching well.

 

Most complete bullpen is the Cardinals with two great leftys in King who I think is the best Lefty in the league, and Kline who has been great against lefty, Also with Taverez setting up and an above average closer in Isringhausen, and i like the name Kiko Calero :D

 

The braves don't count its all Mazzone :D , once most of those pitchers leave Mazzone they're screwed

 

I think the best bullpen if healthy would be Philly, Awsome closer(Wagner)

A healthy Madsen is nasty, Worrell not a bad guy to have in the pen 40 saves in 2003, veteran. Felix Rodriguez before recently one of the better Setup man in the league. Cormier usualy a good lefty, Hernendez another vet guy who has a alot saves in his career knows how to get through an inning.
