Zumaya a Closer?

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

I'm going to differ on this one. I think there's a decent chance (maybe 30%) that Zumaya comes out of spring training with the gig and at least a 50% chance he is closing regularly before the 07 season ends.

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!

Where were you during 2004-2005? I think you forgot that he was one of the most dominant closers in those 2 years.

Well there's no doubt that Zumaya has the stuff and the "look" of a closer, but the Tigers are going to use Todd Jones for as long as they're paying him unless he really blows up (which, despite many expecting him to at any time these past two years, he hasn't yet).

Then Pujols took him deep and destroyed his confidence. Now he's worthless.

Well, have fun owning him next year. I'll pass on the 5.5 ERA and 1.5 WHIP.

Guys, my college roommate is Brad Lidge's cousin. You can flame me all you want if you think I'm lying but I'm not. He's talked to my roommate about his struggles, and said that the NLCS homer doesnt affect him at all, he just had an off year and the trade rumors about him are just lighting a fire under his ass. As for me, I'm banking on him dropping low in the drafts and him having a dominant '07.

I heard the Cubs are interested in trying to trade for Zumaya to bolster their bullpen. Word is they might be willing to trade a starter.

Yeah good luck with that. What starter are they going to trade? Prior? Wood? Hill? Guzman?
