Aardsma


Just checked out his stats from last year...even in the Minors he walked over a batter per 2 innings. Not good, but I agree he's probably better than Herges. :-b

I'm not going to jump on this bandwagon...one per night for me...and my bandwagon left about an hour ago with Tavarez.

Herges WILL NOT close. No way. They'd make Schmidt the closer first.

If I had to guess, it will be a committee of Brower, Eyre, Christiansen, or anyone else they can drag out of the dung heap.

Kevin Correia has been closing at AAA Fresno. His ERA is over 6 with a WHIP of 1.64. :~(

Don't know what became of Aardsma. He's not on the Grizzlies roster.

Aarsdsma is a SP at AA Norwich. 3-0 w/ an ERA of 0.60. ;-D

Wow, soo many closers going down.... :-?
Healthy closers with secure jobs have gotta have great value right now.

That would make sense. The main reason they got Benitez was because they had no satisfactory options in house wasn't it? :-?

It was his right hamstring. They're calling it a "strain." He'll have tests on it tommorow.

If he's out for an extended ammount of time, then I'd bet you'll see Brower inserted into the closers role. He and Eyre have been the only decent arms in this pen, but Eyre is LH. Herges has been bad recently.

I'd also bet that they'd call up one of Foppert, Aardsma, or Valdez. Aardsma was recently moved into the starting rotation in order to work on his off speed pitches, and he's been dominating. I don't think he's even allowed a run. He had a perfect game going into the 6th inning in his last start. However, I do not believe that Aardsma, Valdez, or Foppert would be ready for something like that, which is why I surmise Brower would get the first look as a replacement.

Where did you hear that? I watch all the giants games and they didn't know what it was, except that it was his hammy.

On TV it looked like he just cramped up.
