No. He's awesome, don't get me wrong. But so was Troy, up through 2002. He tailed off a little in the last couple of years but still not at all someone you want to go up against trying to bail out your team in the 9th. Percy was in some ways more fear-inspiring because of his presence. Though the sick motion on Frankie's pitches make him seem more masterful in a superficial way, I think Frankie needs a couple of years in the position before I'd say he's a better closer than Troy ever was. He might be a better closer than Troy is NOW, but even that remains to be seen -- K-Rod has not been a closer for long, and Percy has not been given many opportunities in Detroit.
