Devine is ready... just give him a chance. His meltdowns were the result of going out for the 2nd inning, and he was pitching hurt after his first inning. If you watched him pitch, you'd know, as his velocity was down, and his slider had less bite. He has ridiculous stuff, great fastball with alotta movement, and a Lidge-like slider. He pitched very well this year, and that HR to Burke was garbage, a result of that joke of a ballpark in Houston. As of right now, Boyer and Devine are the two closer options. However, I'm pretty sure JS wants to go out and get a closer, so the two can develop some more, and not be thrown into the role. Guardado might be a good option, if the M's believe Soriano is ready. Seanez will probably be signed, although hopefully not to close. Lidge would be amazing, but will cost way too much.
