Who Needs Jonathan Broxton?

Knowing that absolutely no one was backing him up – and don’t even get me started on the possibility of Guillermo Mota coming into a tight game in the 9th – Ramon Troncoso just struck out three over two innings to nail down the save. Oh sure, it wasn’t the prettiest thing you’ll ever see, since the Cubs did load the bases and get the winning run on in the 9th, but still: if there’s one questionable area on this team, it’s the bullpen, and seeing Troncoso step up like that was huge.

That’s 19 games over .500, if you’re keeping track. Which we clearly are.
