I think Yanks04 calling someone else arrogant constitutes the implosion of the universe.
Actually, IIRC I don't think James ever called for Embree to be the closer. I could be wrong but I've never heard anything of the sort. I know he talks about having a "relief ace" rather than a "closer" to be used in the tight situations, but I can't think of a time when he said Embree should be the Boston closer. If you can prove me wrong on this feel free to, I don't pretend to know the absolute truth.
Either way, so what? People are fallible. Even you
thought Vaz would perform well in NY, right? People can be wrong about things. It's, you know, human.
