That's what the latest article I read said too. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

McD has looked good since Buddy Bell took over, so it will be his - the manager has confidence in him now, and he has actually looked pretty good. Seems like Affeldt will stay in the pen and set up.

Nothing as of confirmed rumors etc. but dont be surprised if Affeldt is dealt by the AS Break for an OFer.....KC and CIN hasd a deal going in April Kearns for Addeldt straight up....so if Affeldt shows he is healthy I think he will be dealt.

That is interesting, I would think CIN would want more for Kearns, butt he is slumping...
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

The only thing that appears concrete is that Affeldt is out of the closing mix in KC. Mac has the job for now, and Burgos is his apparent stand-in.

That's not concrete, that's your opinion. How can you know what the situation is when Affeldt came off the DL this saturday? There has only been one royals game since then. Affeldt isn't the closer now and god knows if he will be, but he's not out of the picture by any means.

Maybe you don't understand what concrete means.

"Dick Kaegel, of Royals.MLB.com, reports that Kansas City Royals RP Mike MacDougal has been named the team's closer by MAN Buddy Bell. The team had used a bullpen-by-committee approach under interim MAN Bob Schaefer."

So the words "named closer" and "concrete" go together. And he knows the "situation" because he "reads" reports from the "manager".
