Julio/Valverde situation worked out yet?

Recommendation: Meanwhile, Jose Valverde was not called upon even to set up Julio. That job instead went to Luis Vizcaino.


Whenever I hear that phrase "sloppy" used with a closer, it usually means a meltdown is coming along. This is good news for Valverde owners... the Recommendation is bad news for them. Since I don't own Vizcaino or Lyon, it would be a disaster if Julio lost his job, and one of them took over.

I didn't see him pitch, but what qualifies as "sloppy?" His Tuesday line looks good to me.

Didn't see it either. I was just going by what was written.

I want Saito, so I gotta drop one now. I don't know who yet, but at least I end up with closer as opposed to two shaky ones.

Stick that preverbial fork in Valverde. It wouldn't surprise me if he gets sent down to AAA to try to retune. His 4 runs allowed tonight was the final straw.
Now, the question is-who stands behind Julio should he falter, Lyon, Aquino or Vizciano?

Vizcaino set him up. I would think he would get the call, and then Lyon.
