Who Will Close?

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

And who do I want to close next year?

Preferably Jason Frasor (the closer of last year) or Justin Speier, as I really don't want JP spending any money on a closer, there are more pressing needs at hand.. :-o

Yeah. Hopefully they don't waste any money on that.

Frasor closed it out tonight, and hopefully it will stay that way.

Do we have any word about whether Frasor is the closer the rest of the way, or was this just a "rest Batista" type of night? I really have zero faith in Batista (for fantasy AND in real life), but don't want to drop him and let someone close to me in saves get something out of him...

By the way, Jays fans, for some reason the Jays have always been one of my two favorite teams (with the M's). I was only like 10 or 11, but I remember crying after the stupid A's beat them in the ALCS. The only real MLB jersey that I've ever owned was a Blue Jay jersey and I was wearing it (and my hat!) while jumping up and down after watching Joe hit the HR to win the WS. Good times... ;-D

I read in the news today that Batista will remain as the closer...it turns out that he was just taking a rest yesterday... :-/

Great news about you being a Jays fan ;-D

Here's something to think about. Why not Dave Bush?

I know he may be a great starter, but he was a closer for some time in college and I think he'd be real good doing the job.

2001
2.68 ERA
10.46 K/9
0.99 WHIP
16 Saves
70 IP

2002
1.65 ERA
9.15 K/9
0.95 WHIP
13 Saves
60 IP

Just a suggestion, some may not like it, but I think he would be a good choice. The Jays are going to have to do something if they want to keep McGowan in the rotation.

I think Bush has too much potential to be a great starter to put him in the closers role. Bush really isn't all that overpowering anyway, and he has the ability to go 7-8 innings with ease if he his pitching well and throwing his curve ball in the right spots.
