I like this guy.
you would. (dammit, dont clog). Yes he danced around and hobbled, but got the job done. I'm not saying there's any huge news here. Looks like a calf issue and not the Knock.Someone asked a coupla pages back if they should drop Hawkins, and I'm just thinking stay put for a few more opportunities to see how Valverde does. He's the man for the Astros. Hell, they way overpaid for him so theyre going to use him unless he's hurt. And he's not 100% right now, hence, my feeling that Hawkins gets some opportunities in the next week or so, and if youre in the boat of vulturing a save or two, he's in a decent spot right now.

Well, as I said a couple days.... (It was written off as Game Commentary by some moronic poster) It appears that we have ourselves a new interim closer. Villanueva comes in to set up Coffey in the 8th. Coffey comes in a records the save. He recorded two K's, but it was not clean. Werth took him a solo HR, and he allowed two other hits. That was the first run Coffey has allowed since becoming a Brewer last year.
Of course, Trevor is due to come back soon, but we all know that he isn't the most reliable at this point in his career.
Soriano sure closed the game out with authority though, and now has more saves this season than Gonzalez. I think he has to be towards to top of the list of high strikeout, good ratio, potential closer setup men to own right now.
