Marlins Closer Meltdown Watch: Núñez Starts the Season off Ugly

The Marlins ended up winning in extra innings, no thanks to Núñez, or most every other member of a bullpen that did its best impression of a seven-layer burrito -- you know, just inviting runs. Núñez blew over a fifth of his save chances last year. If given the chance, he may just exceed that watermark of futility in 2010.

Tim Wood, though, pitched a perfect tenth for the save. Do we have a dark horse candidate for the closer position? Wait, who?

The odds that last night's closer has the job in a week: 95 percent. Unfortunately.
