Bobby Parnell: Closing Duties on Tap

Update: Parnell will open the season as the Mets' closer, manager Terry Collins told WFAN's Mike Francesa on Tuesday.

Recommendation: With Frank Francisco still experiencing elbow pain, this news does not come as a real shock. Parnell showed at the end of last season, he can handle the closer role. If he gets off to a good start, he could stay in the role, even when Francisco returns and Brandon Lyon available.
