Does Balfour still have value?

Of course...great ratios, high k/IP....but there seems to be some controversy over whether Percy is coming back soon or not.

If Broxton falters is there any chance we see Kuo get a shot at closing? I realize he's been incredibly valuable in long relief, but I imagine a switch to ninth inning duties would be pretty easy for him to make. They could also continue to take advantage of his long relief capabilities by giving him 8th and 9th inning duty for the occasional two inning save.

Anybody have any insight into Papelbon's July struggles as his numbers are a little off. Fluke? A certain pitch not working?
