It's the tenth anniversary of the now infamous "closer by committee" that Theo Epstein brought to Boston.

Who's closing out games for the Red Sox this season? It was Hanrahan, then it was Bailey, then Tazawa, followed by Uehara.  Have we seen the return of the closer bycommittee?

Michael Holley believes we are seeing the return of the closer by committee, but Steve Buckley says there is a fatal flaw in his argument.

"Closer by committee by design is what they were putting out there in 2003." clarified Buckley, "This is closer by committee by necessity.  Big difference."
