Jorge Julio

After Jose Valverde's 2nd 1IP/2ER outing this week, I am becoming more comfortable believing Jorge Julio will remain the D'backs closer.

Why?  Because manager Bob Melvin's public statements of support for Valverde make him look foolish.  

In order to retain a semblance of baseball acumen, Melvin will keep Julio in the closer role and offer some pablum about Valverde needing a little more time to work out some mechanicals issues.
