SnakePit Round Table: Drive Time

Spencer: Mark Melancon. I think he starts with the job, and with better arms in front of him, there will be less pressure throughout the season. Alternate: Scott McGough because he has closing experience - he’ll be the next guy up if/when Melancon pulls another Bumgarner season.

Justin: Going with McGough. If he fails his nickname could be mcOUCH.

James: I tend to agree with Spencer on this one. I don’t think any of the younger candidates will get enough opportunities in 2023.

DBacksEurope: Right now you’d say Melancon.
