There were the same whispers last year. That the playoffs the previous year were a fluke, and that Neil Cotts was the hot pickup to take the job from Jenks, who was far too inconsistant to keep his job for a full season. Then he went on to save 41 games. I'd say his job is pretty secure.
well its not like he was actually that great last year...
5.72 ERA after the break, pretty high whip. 41 saves to 4 blown is good though.
just saying, hes not the most locked down closer in the league. of course, thats obvious, but it is a situation to keep an eye on at least.
