Craig Kimbrel earned his MLB-leading 30th save with a perfect ninth inning against the Phillies on Friday. He struck out two.
He's the No. 1 closer in the game, folks, and that hasn't changed in now in three and a half seasons. Like any other ninth inning specialist out there, he'll have his bumps in the road, but he's now gone eight-straight appearances without allowing a run and has a 1.86 ERA with a 0.85 WHIP and a ridiculous 64 strikeouts over 38.2 innings this season. Is there anything else that needs to be said? Probably not.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Bills are expected to release Mario Williams.
It was obvious that he was not fitting into the defensive scheme being employed by Rex Ryan and his staff. At 31 years of age, he still should have some skills left to devote to another team that will utilize his pass rush and tackling abilities. Look for him to catch on with another team if Buffalo decides to cut him loose. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
DeMarcus Ware said that he intends to continue playing.
Ware has been quoted as saying that "he's got a lot of gas left in the tank," so this announcement comes as no huge shock. Playing opposite Von Miller help to revitalize his game, as he snagged 7.5 sacks in 11 regular season games and 3.5 in three post season games, with two of those coming in the Super Bowl last Sunday.
