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.

Well i would say If Krod keeps his slider and doesnt get hurt from his delievery He will become one of the best closers to ever be in the game.

i like krod...but i think he depends on his slider to bail him out too much...i do think if his fastball were a pitch that had more movement like a 2 seamer...he could be nearly impossible to hit...whenever i watch hitters attack krod...they seem to just sit on his fastball until krod gets ahead of the count and they just hack at the slider...

all in all...i luv watchin krod...but hes not the closer percy is...yet...hopefully health is not an issue with krod...the guy plays winterball every year so its like nonstop baseball for him...

I think K Rod is on his way to being better than Troy, but not yet.

I think K Rod in 06 has already surpassed Troy in terms of best one season ever in the closer role
