Watch Out For A Closer Turning Into a Setup Man

Benitez was quoted in one of the papers yesterday as saying he has no interest in going to the Yankees as a setup man and wants to stay a closer, but that he would do it if absolutely necessary. I would think the Yankees would take that as a red flag and not deal for him, because he's a free agent this year and they don't want to give up prospects for him if he's unlikely to resign next year.

I don't think the Yankees intend to keep him after this season anyways

Whoever that dude that posted is, know this - Mike Williams is not underrated. He's a half-ass closer who blows saves frequently. He's not dominant, and I'm not just takling about striking hitters out. He has to dig down deep and claw away to get every save. Definitely not underrated. Maybe overrated just cause he gets saves. Dotel, Santana, Jeff Nelson, LaTroy Hawkins, Mike Remlinger - they're all way better than Mike Williams. You're just addicted to saves.
