Trade Jones back to the Marlins and use Zumaya as the closer.

You have to wonder why Detroit, a bona fide penant contender, would start the season with Jones closing when it has Zumaya to close and Rodney to set up. (Plus I could keep Zumaya for $10 if he closes!@#@%^$#)

Well, he has blown eleven in that same amount of time. Between that, his near 4.00 ERA last season, I think the Tigers are better off getting what they can for him and utilizing Zumaya and Rodney as the closer/set-up.

Do they have a major hole that needs filling though? You have to admit that overall, the bullpen is better with Jones in it than with whoever would replace him.

Just because he's not flashy doesn't mean he's worthless.
