I feel bad for the people on here who were tlaking about or advising to pick him up or trade cheap for him..this seemed very likely :-t

Don't regret it, He is finished. (Frasor) for the time being, no confidence, I really think they are going to go with Accardo, He has been the best arm in the Bullpen all season.

But if you are a Jays fan, why the Yankees logo?


I made a bet. Its about time I got rid of it though.

What did you want him to do? There really aren't any closers sitting around in FA. You can't replace BJ Ryan, he was one of the best closers in the league last season.

A trade could happen eventually, but that would only happen if this team moves into somewhere near contention and becomes a buyer.

Not every RP is a closer. I said sure up the pen. What I meant by that was that they get some quality arms in the pen. Sure we would still have a problem in the last inning. But we are lacking decent arms in the pen. Like seriously Brian Tallet that guy stanks. We could of improved the pen without getting a proven closer.

I didn't have him on my team but what a sad, sad loss for us. He's never going to be the same and he cost a boatload of money!

To those Jays fan with knowledge - is it a closer by committee now? Feat Accardo, Downs, possibly Janssen?

I had Frasor when Ryan first went down, recently dropped him for Accardo figuring he'd the guy to close out games for TOR...now I'm hearing 3 different names...any ideas? I'm hurting for saves in my league, but I don't want to own 2 guys who might get me one or two saves a week...

Stick with what you have. Accardo is the best option among all the candidates to do something good for you.

Even if other guys might vulture a save somewhere, you really don't want more than one guy from this bullpen on your roster.

Right along what I was thinking. It seems like it's going to be a LHP/RHP thing for the Jays. Maybe I can move Accardo after he picks up a save or two...
