Coffey now in a committee.

Postby TheYanks04 » Thu Jun 22, 2006 10:21 pm

That did notlast long.

As per CBS Sportsline:

Reds RHP Todd Coffey, anointed the closer two weeks ago by manager Jerry Narron, will be part of a closer's committee in Cincinnati, possibly appearing in the seventh or the eighth inning as he was doing in April and pitching so well. That means some games will be finished by Kent Mercker, Chris Hammond or David Weathers. "To get Coffey more work, I'm going to mix and match with those four guys," Narron said. "Coffey pitched so well for us early in the season coming into games in the seventh and eighth innings, and those innings are just as important as far as putting up zeros as is the ninth. Games are won and lost in the seventh or eighth, too."
(Updated 06/22/2006).
FANTASY ANALYSIS
"I don't mind at all," Coffey said. "I want to win so bad, that's all I really care about. If I have to go back to pitching in the seventh or eighth, that's fine." Fantasy owners might not be as mellow. He should still be the Reds' closer of choice, which means something, but don't consider him a must-start Fantasy option in mixed leagues anymore.

I am thinking of cutting Coffey for An. Reyes in one league now. Reds closers are pretty worthless in shallow leagues.

I'm telling you...Grant Balfour, in July, will close if he's healthy. No, I am not related to him. ;-D

Nope, but I do live in Cincy area and I pay attention. I do have some reasons why I think Balfour will be the guy...

1. New Reds GM Waybe Krivsky's 1st act was signing Balfour.

2. A successful minor league starter & closer

3. Best arm in pen when healthy (though the Reds pen is awful and he doesn't have much to compete with) and only has to compete with Coffey.

4. Has 3 major league quality pitches with a Fastball (95-97 mph)
Slider (87 mph, devastating pitch), Splitfinger-Fastball

5. He's only 5'10 and injury history will probably negate him from starting

6. The 1st batter he sees never gets on (something like a sub .100 avg. during his career

7. He's a strikout pitcher who throws strikes

8. Right handed

9. Ryan Wagner is not ready yet, evidently (though neither is the current Cincy pen)

10. He's an Aussie!

...July 21, 2004 Balfour threw a fastball in the 8th inning that was clocked at 101 mph by the Comerica radar gun. The sonic boom may have knocked out the FSN audio momentarily.


If he can get healthy and stay that way I think he'll take the job and run with it. I was right on Sosa & McClung... ;-D
