David Carpenter pitched a 1-2-3 9th inning for his second save as the Braves defeated the Cubs 5-2 on Sunday.
We recently received a question on the Fantasy Alarm Podcast asking what bullpen arm may be worth stashing in a 15-team league? Well one to consider is Carpernter, who although was just filling in again for Craig Kimbrel who was unavailable to pitch on Sunday (rest) did show for the second consecutive time that he can handle the role as a closer when given the opportunity.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Aldon Smith said he is "hungry" to bounce back in 2015.
While that's all well and good, the bottom line is that Smith needs to stay focused on the field and out of trouble off it. His suspension really hurt the 49ers defense and with a new regime taking over, he needs to really prove that he's more than just a problem child. He can be one of the best in the game if he's focused, so if he's really that hungry, the 49ers will let him eat. Analysis: Howard Bender
