The problem with hanging on to say a Alex Gordon is that you may miss out on this year's Hanley Ramirez. So sometimes hanging on to a slumping player will cost you by missing out on a player like Hanley. So I guess sometimes making the tough cut pays off. Whereas it takes patience to hang onto a guy like Gordon it takes courage to make the tough cut. Both ways can work, it all comes down to cutting the right guy. An unproven player like Gordon is not someone one should hang their hat on.

Salomon Torres, Al Reyes, and Joe Borowski have more saves than Joe Nathan, Francisco Rodriguez, Bobby Jenks, Billy Wagner, and BJ Ryan.


Are we still totally sure that Reyes and Borowski can't save 35 games? I see no reason why that would be an impossibility. I mean, if Chad Cordero can do it on the Nationals, so can these guys.

I don't think they can't do it. But, it certainly wasn't expected out of any of them. Torres and Borowski have already hit bumps in the road, and one would assume Reyes is bound to hit one sooner or later. Meanwhile, the others I mentioned are expected to finish near the top of the saves list, and be the most valuable closers goin'. So my main point was, even though they're not weighted where you expected them to be at this point in the season, that doesn't mean they won't be in due time. You do make a good point, though, and maybe Reyes or whomever will lock down 30+ or more.
