Mike MacDougal Setup Man???

Postby River Rat » Thu Mar 08, 2007 12:43 am

Is Mike MacDougal defined as the setup guy to Bobby Jenks now that Neal Cotts and company are outa Chicago??

I am thinking that MacDougal will be a Holds machine this season.

What is everyones outlook on MacD this season?

I don't know if he is slotted yet as the set-up man, but I do know one thing...there is a good chance he will get hurt. As a Royals fan, I watched him go down three straight years with arm problems.

The guy has a very funky delivery that puts a lot of strain on his arm, and it has cost him. I love the guy, and when healthy his stuff is absolutely sick, but that motion just seems like an elbow injury waiting to happen (again).

Jenks is the closer and, if healthy, MacDougal will get a ton of holds. He's got great stuff and Guillen will use him and either Thornton or Cisco (from the left side) in that role.

If Jenks continues to struggle he may be tried at closer. Jenks was roughed up again against the Cubs "b" players yesterday.

His fastball is only sitting in the low 90's.
