Yeah, thanks all...I just dumped Hasegawa (super late round pick that I don't think was very good) for Batista. I already have Nathan, Percival, and Hoffman...but another closer can't hurt if people are looking for trades. ;-D

Does this put him above Mike Adams and Affledt?

No freakin way.

Batista was an average starter with a few good years, 6 career saves in 1100 IP and a career 5.5 k/9. He's no Eck or Smoltz.

Plus what the Jays say and what they do are two different things.

The Brewers closer has a better chance of lasting the season than the Jays manager forget about the Jays closer. I would be floored if Batista got over 20 saves this year.

This puts Batista in the same range as Aquino and maybe a little behind Affeldt. Adams is above Batista for sure.

Mook, not to make any unfair comparisons... But so was Gagne.

(Don't take this as saying that Batista = Gagne. It's just that some guy's stuff are better in the pen than others. Maybe Batista's that kind of guy.)

Actually, now that I think about it....

Ricciardi's a Beane disciple. Batista gives up a lot of walks without K'ing too many, and saves are inflated in value among MLB GM's.

Is anyone thinking what I'm thinking?
