How Safe Is Loopers Job?

Postby Jedimindtric » Mon Apr 25, 2005 8:59 pm

I have heard his job was anywhere from safe as it comes to the possibility of trading for Mike Gonzalez and Looper going to Middle relief. I was thinking of trading Sabathia for him but only if his job is safe as a closer. What do you guys think?

Unless the Mets make a trade then there's nobody really to take it from him. As far as trade rumors go, I haven't heard anything about the Mets but maybe someone more local (Amazinz) has.

His job is safe. No worries. Even if they bring someone in, I'm inclined to think that person would set up for Looper.

I'd say it's pretty safe. Maybe not so safe if the Mets trade for Mike G. but that was just speculation by FOX Sports.

I've heard that Mike Gonzalez or John Grabow may be coming over here, for what I'm not sure.

If they dont trade for anyone I guess you would have to say the job is safe since there isn't really anyone to take it from him.

Did you hear that from the normally oft-gossipping NY media? They make news out of literally everything...I wouldn't put too much weight into it.

The Mets are interested in both of them, but the Pirates want a major league ready player (aka Diaz) for Gonzalez. There is no way the Mets do this. They are focusing on Grabow (also a lefty). The thing is the Pirates might want to wait a little before trading a left handed reliever because they can get much more, later in the season when teams are making the playoff push.

I'd say that Looper's job is real safe right now. Unless they trade for a proven closer (Urbina or possibly Baez), Looper is the closer and no one else is taking it away from him.
