Nothing. He's fine. He hasn't been sharp yet but there is no apparent reason to worry. Even the lack of quality of his team shouldn't hurt him too much.

He's had bouts of this before. I think the problem is the extreme dearth of save opps the 'Stros are producing. I have no statistical matrix to back it up, but having owned/watched him for several years, I get the sense he does best with regular work. And when the weather heats up.

Hold.

Weather heats up? He's been AZ for at least the last 3 years. He's shaky, trust me.

Valverde is not a great closer. He's inconsistant and he is going to struggle at times.

Just watched him give up 4 in the 9th to Phils to lose 4-3. Ouch!

It's an even numbered year. He only does well in odd numbered years. Seriously, check it out.

Do not drop him yet, but if you can hold Brocail I might. Valverde was held out of the save the other night, but the manager said it was due to pitching the night before. Then they throw him into a non save situation the next game? I would be worried as a Valverde owner.
