Mixed messages muddle a rocky closer situation in Philly
Stop talking about "closer mentality." Look, I could have closer mentality, but my 65 MPH fastball isn't fooling anyone. You need someone on the mound who can simply get outs. Finding the most psychologically perfect person for the "role" is a luxury this team can't afford right now.

"I'll always be Pete's friend, but I think he needs to show more remorse for what he did to the game," Schmidt said. "Pete's always been Pete. He's stubborn. He lives a more exciting lifestyle than me and I can't be around him all the time to check up on him."
