i watched a couple cubs games in the last week or two and the announcers reported that baker said alfonseca will get the job back when he is ready. so as long as alf keeps giving up runs, he is going to stay as the setup man. if he starts pitching like he used (which still wasnt as good as borowski in my opinion) he will get the job back, if we are to believe what baker says.

Manager Dusty Baker says Antonio Alfonseca may eventually get back his job as closer, but doesn't seem to be in a hurry for that to happen. ''Eventually, like I told you, I'm going to flip-flop them someday; I just don't know when,'' Baker said Monday. Use this news how you will. If the Cubs keep winning with Joe Borowski closing and Alfonseca in a setup role, there wouldn't be much reason to make a change.
