He had a little bump in the road big deal. Many closers go through the samething. A closer is never going to be perfect and convert of all his chance's.


Clearly you've never heard of Eric Gagne ;-)


Clearly you have never heard of 2008.

BJ Ryan is still the Toronto closer and will remain the closer.

I think it's just guys getting antsy about picking up the next closer in waiting. When someone blows a couple, especially someone with injury history, people get a little excited. Sometimes even hope the guy fails. Right now I'd say Scott Downs is the guy you're looking for as a Ryan handcuff. If Ryan goes down or isn't getting it done, that's who I think they'll turn to.

The question was worded pretty bad (as if he's already out the door) but I think Downs is the answer to what you were looking for.

Unless there is a serious injury, BJ will NOT lose his job this year. He has one of the longest leashes in the AL I think. An injury would be the only this to derail his chances as the closer.

Even good closers can loose their jobs. No leash is infinite.
I gruntle the disgruntled.
