Joe Posnanski on Glen Perkins on closing

This would be worth reading if it weren't about Glen Perkins, but I probably wouldn't link to it in that case.

But it is about Perkins, and so here it is.

It's Perkins through Pos going pitch-by-pitch through the ninth inning of Tuesday's save against the Yankees — how he warms up, how he approached the hitters, how he dealt with the home run he gave up.

Almost a throwaway, but very much worth mentioning, is Perkins talking about the value of the closer role.
