Myers to assume closer duties while Gordon out

Postby magoosh007 » Thu May 03, 2007 3:18 pm

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Myers will be the team's closer for a four-game series against the Giants that starts tonight. The team sent Tom Gordon back to Philadelphia to have his shoulder examined after he complained of soreness.

Does anybody think Gordon is really going to get his job back as closer if he becomes healthy again? I speculate Myers takes the job and runs with it. Putting Gordon into a setup role when he returns.

It all depends. I personally think Gordon will get it back or be traded. I have Myers and would love for the Phillies to sweep their weekend series with Myers pitching perfect for saves. If he does that and doesn't look shaky, he has a shot to keep it. I doubt he does though....But heck, I have no idea what Manuel is thinking. :-?

No, Gordon will not be back to Philadelphia closing, and perhaps pitching all together.
