SKIP THE REST

 

Okay, not all the rookies are rocking in Sept. Sellers is doing his best impression of Juan Castro, Elbert is not building off the brilliant August, Javy is showing why Jansen should be the closer in 2012, Nathan is no more a stud relief pitcher then he is a starter.

Still,  the important rookies are delivering and are a big part of the reason why this team is as hot in Sept as any team in baseball. 

Kenley Jansen by the way is simply sick. 21 k's against his last 31 hitters. With only one walk. Marmol may have the all time K/9 rate but his walk rate was through the roof when he did it. It is premature to say Jansen is better then what we got from Gagne / Broxton / Saito / Kuo but right now, Jansen can stand tall among those redwoods.
