Zumaya...2007..

Zumaya was brought in with the intentions to make him a starting pitcher. Depending on what happens during the offseason with the starting staff, any of the three options could occur. There are too many variables at the moment.

I've heard many reports saying that they're grooming him to close. I don't think his change is good enough to start. That's why they made the decision. THey have Sanchez waiting in the wings to start next year so I think they have enough options.

Jones will go for some serious value on the trade market with back to back good seasons at closer at a time where good closers are hard to find..



Jones will be dealt in the offseason



Rodney will set up

Zumaya will be the long term answer at closer.

I wish Jones would get dealt but I can't see it. The Tigers signed him to a insane deal at his age. He went from a stud closer, to was a journeyman, to being cut, thenagain having succes in Fla, to signing a crazy deal in Det. If the Tigers fall out of it (ala Bob Wickman). But pending injury, Zumaya is going to have to wait. :-(

Whitehot, i see under your post you have Liriano rated as the best lefty pitcher ever. What would you base that on? I've been a huge Carlton fan my entire life, I just not sure how you would go about comparing their careers.

Thanks for the fabulous and well thought out input. Pure genius. Evidence and facts to support statements like this are vastly overrated. ;-7

Well the guy does throw 100 mph...Let's see, other players who throw as hard:

Harden
Wood
Prior
Burnett

Hmmmm...What do these guys have in common? Not all of them had Tommy John's surgery, but the two guys who haven't(Harden and Prior) have barely played the last two seasons.

Don't be a homer and think that Zumaya is immune to injury.

yea, Zumaya is great but did you see him get rocked last night by Morneau? First pitch and gonzo.... I love it! He may be good but he still has to learn that he can't always depend on blowing his 100mph pitch past people... If the hitters are expecting it the pitcher will always lose.

So, throwing fastballs is the most common cause of needing TJ surgery??
