I don't think so, Wickman will still get a few more chances to see if he can succeed. If he does struggle I expect Betancourt(who looked very good today) to take the closer spot over Rhodes ;-D

Rhodes isn't a very good pitcher... I still say Betancourt gets the job if Wickman loses it. Usually control is his strong suit but he got 4 K's in less than 3 IP today. I'd love to see him moved to closer because I have him in a few leagues, but for now I'll be more than happy with the ERA/WHIP/K help he provides. And the odd win here and there given that he's a MR on a team with a few good MR's.

it takes more than one bad outing to lose your job. should he get bumped, i dont think it will be rhodes. could be betancourt. could be howry. could be riske. sort of depends on who looks better at the time.

Riske really screwed up when given the chance before but he's much better suited to the job so I think that they give him another chance.
