Benitez having trouble??

Postby uncabomb » Thu Jun 08, 2006 3:52 pm

ESPN report Benitez might be having some pain in his arm again. They say the next guy is accardo or worrell and with the ole man running the team, they say he usually goes with experience over#'s sometimes. But accardo's #'s are a lot better...who do you think would get it and have y'all heard anything else from any other place?

During the last homestand, manager Felipe Alou was asked which of his young relievers had the best shot of being a closer, and immediately he answered Accardo. Accardo's ERA over his last nine outings is 0.71. It'll be interesting to see how long Benitez holds onto the closer's role.

So it's all just speculation based on one game? I did not see any links reporting this.

Do you have the link? Benitez got the win last night. Still no word on how painful it was.

ESPN reports:
In San Francisco, there's speculation that Armando Benitez is hurt again. Benitez, now 33, did miss much of last season with a torn groin, but that injury has healed. Earlier this season a knee injury put him on the DL. Since then, the only reports we've heard from the Bay have been related to Benitez complaining about a lack of workload. Indeed, Benitez only pitched in seven games all of May, saving two of three chances. The Giants are just an odd team. When they win, it's been by more than three runs or via walkoff. Armando saved Saturday's game at Shea, then blew Sunday's. And we absolutely cannot read anything into that Jason Schmidt performance Tuesday, when Felipe Alou had two relievers warming up in the ninth, with Schmidt up 2-1 and runners on second and third, but not Benitez. Schmidt was going to win or lose that game. He ended up striking out the next three hitters. Had he allowed the tying run, someone like Jeremy Accardo would have entered, with the lead gone. I have heard unsubstantiated rumors from San Francisco in the last 24 hours that Benitez is hurting, and if they are true, I'd think Accardo or Tim Worrell is next in line. Felipe could choose Worrell, you know. Worrell saved six games in April and just came off the DL Wednesday. He has experience. Accardo has far better numbers, and stuff, but old managers generally choose experience. That said, I just grabbed Accardo in a deep league. Worth a shot.

Thanks for the extra work and posting it. As the article said, it is just speculation. However, it does make sense. I think Benitez is a roller coaster, and the Giants want someone more stable. With Worrell just off the DL, he may need some time/work.
