Those 3 closers all had shaky moments throughout the year. Shingo was bad. Hermanson had a bad back. Jenks was a rookie who actually blew a save in the WS.
All the credit to me goes on that starting staff. They carried that team to a Championship.
JoeYoung is correct about the bullpen. It was an outstanding lockdown bullpen the likes of which we haven't seen since then. Just look at the stats.
