Kevin Hooper on Josh: I can’t describe the feeling a manager has when you have a guy like Josh Dew down in the bullpen to close things out for your team in the ninth inning.  He is arguably the best closer in the league, and we are very fortunate to have him returning for the 2013 season.  He has that bulldog mentality and always wants the ball at the end of the game in a save situation.
