what's with these closers??

Postby Eightan » Tue Apr 12, 2005 11:21 pm

these so called "elite" closers have been blowing leads left and right these first two weeks? looper blew pedro's first start, rivera blew two against boston, wickman blew millwood's first start, cordero blew livan's 2nd start, takatsu blew his 2nd opportunity, and hoffman melted down his first time out... not to mention kolb tonight... what is with these guys? something in the air or what?

It's "what" , a week and a half out of six months. You'll get the stats/saves.

Baseball tonight just said that the last 8 (I think) days in a row a closer has blown a lead. Certainly huring me since I have 4 closers and 2 saves in a week and 1/2.

I say Yes since fb owners are very paranoid. :-D

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.
