      That’s a full quarter of the league right there.

      I suppose you could add Brad Lidge who was replacing Storen until he got hurt (although reporting him as injured is like reporting the sky to be blue).

      About 1/3 to 1/2 of the closer jobs in MLB turn over each season (which is what makes 15 years of Mo so towering…), but many are lost due to incomptence (Marmol). I can’t remember seeing so many closers go down to season-ending injuries.

      Anyone else see Street beg out of the Padres game last night because of a bum shoulder? There goes another one.
