Dessens is Out

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From the Kansas City Star/Rotoworld:

Elmer Dessens has reportedly lost his closer job after two bad outings.
The Royals used Joe Nelson to save Friday's win over the Yankees and manager Buddy Bell indicated that he may turn to Ambiorix Burgos again. Of course, given how poorly Burgos has pitched since losing the job himself, that makes litle sense.

The article goes on to say Nelson was chosen because of his changeup, but since it is a hometown paper they neglected to talk about him BLOWING his chance. Still, look for Nelson to get the next opportunity.

Figured that much. :)

At least I learned a good lesson this week: don't even bother with Royals closers.

Yeah, if a Royals closer might be making or breaking your chances in any given week, chances are you've got bigger problems on your team to worry about...
