Players need roles. They need to know they're the leadoff hitter, the utility guy or one of the worst starting pitchers in the history of the game.

This is especially true in the modern bullpen. You have your long man, mop-up guy, LOOGY, ROOGY, seventh inning guy who pitches with a lead, eighth inning guy who pitches with a lead and Closer.

And with Jonathan Broxton heading to Cincinnati, the Royals have a new Closer.
