Todd Jones out, Frenando Rodney in

Postby chargerss24 » Sun Jul 27, 2008 2:37 pm

Per CBS:

Fernando Rodney, RP DET
News: MLB.com reports that Tigers manager Jim Leyland announced before Sunday's game against the White Sox that RP Fernando Rodney will take over from RP Todd Jones as the team's closer.
Analysis: Jones had closed for Detroit the last 2 1/2 years, but blew his third save in 22 chances Friday night, and that was apparently enough for Leyland to make the move to Rodney. Jones has a 4.99 ERA and only three saves in July, so he wasn't exactly pleasing his Fantasy owners. Jones could regain the job down the road, so hold on to him in deeper AL-only leagues, but only if you have the room. Rodney's ownership will certainly zoom up from the current three percent, and he is now a viable No. 2 closer in all mixed leagues, even if he has only converted 21 of 42 save opportunities in his career.

well he just gave up 2 runs in the 8th. one was credited to zumaya and one was credited towards himself. i wouldn't add him unless your in desperate needs of saves.

Coming into the play today Rodney had a 2.70 ERA and 1.10 WHIP, .189 BAA and a 1K/IP ratio in July. Yeah he sucks and should be avoided at all costs because he had a slightly bad day.

i'm mulling over dropping Kobayashi for him... it's sort of negligble, but Rodney has the role to himself... unless the tigers get a closer at the deadline!!!!!!! ugggghhhh
For every Brett Myers there's a Nate McLouth...

I would take Rodney over the hot dog champ, who hasn't been that great since taking over the bulk of the saves duty in Cleveland.
