Tommy Hunter: Pitching on the Edge

After trading Jim Johnson during the offseason, the Orioles were left without a closer.  They attempted to replace Johnson by signing Grant Balfour, but we all know how that ended.  Following the failed signing of Balfour, they looked at their in-house options, and Tommy Hunter emerged as the team’s closer towards the end of spring training.  Hunter has been pretty good so far, converting 7 of his 8 save opportunities.  However, it’s the way he’s been converting those saves that caught my attention.  Today I have a post on ESPN Sweetspot Network Orioles blog, Camden Depot that looks at how Tommy Hunter in the closer role will keep Orioles fans on the edge of their seats all summer.
