I completely disagree. The key here is Julio's performance, not Valverde's. If Julio keeps pitching well, I don't care how good Valverde is he's not getting the job back. If (many people would say "when") Julio blows up, then it's up for debate, but not before.


I should have explained myself. I believe that Jorge Julio is going to blow up. Period.

So as long as Valverde continues to pitch well, he will have his job back, as a result of Julio blowing up. ;-D

Hopefully Julio blows up.. I had to drop him (since he was my only droppable player) for a spot starter the next day and someone snagged him before I could pick him back up. :-/

News: Arizona RHP Jose Valverde has recorded eight strikeouts in his past three innings of work, allowing one hit and no runs, and is within sight of regaining his job as Arizona's closer. RHP Jorge Julio still has the role for now. "We've used (Luis) Vizcaino and (Brandon) Lyon a lot, and to have another guy potentially set up, too, maybe we'll move toward that before we potentially move him back into a closing role," manager Bob Melvin said of Valverde. "His last two outings, he's really pitched like the Valverde we're used to seeing. Confidence is an issue out there, but his fastball is exploding again, and when he's feeling good about himself, he's that much better."

Analysis: Valverde could be one Jorge Julio blown save away from getting back his spot as the D-Backs' closer. Keep him benched, but definitely do not drop him since he could get some saves soon.


From CBS. I agree that Julio is one or two blown saves from giving the job back to Valverde.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

The key, as stated above his Julio. If he pitches great, he will keep the job. But what are the chances of this? He has consistently sucked for 3 years after his apparantly abberation of a rookie season.

Counting on Julio to keep this up over the rest of the season is as dumb as counting on Tyler Walker, Miceli, Burgos or any other proven bum.
