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.
This is what I said on April 18 (which you were nice enough to thank me for), and I am sticking to this story. Coffey is the handcuff to have in Milw, not Villanueva.

Re: Milw closer and Villy pitching in the 7th, I think he is out as interim as well. However, I think it is Coffey who gets the call, not DiFelice. Coffey has not allowed a run since he was added to the Brewers roster last year. Macha has been using him consistently in the high leverage situations. Additionally, he was a closer for Cincy for about 3 weeks, so he has some experience.
That's just my gut feeling, not anything I have read.

careful. as crazy as it sounds, I still think BJ has one more life. that said, don't know if downs is the guy, he has established his role in the 7th and 8th and has shown an ability to get more than 3 outs. I have serious doubts that he would be the guy.
Don't get your hopes up with Coffey. I've watched this guy struggle for years in Cincinnati...he's just a rounder, redheaded, less "Beauty and the Beast"-looking version of Derrick Turnbow. Buy with caution.

See how this situation plays out over the next few opportunities, how Valverde pitches. I seriously doubt Hawkins holds, but there are people out there looking for every opportunity to pick up a few saves.
That being said, a pun, at it's base form is a play on words. For you two, there's a play on a bird motif there. While not a good one, I admit(ted), it's a pun, or at least and attempt to (and this is Webster here, smart guys) "juxtapose (big word, I know, but stay with me) connect, or bring out two or more possible applications of the word or words, usually in humorous way."
Definitely not a good one, but you missed the mark in that you took up space and time to comment on it. This is the "2009 CLOSERS THREAD" (thanks again, Havok) not "2009 I Got a C in English Thread." Please, you and your two s**t posts and the bong toting Phish-head save it for something useful. Better yet, just save it.
well 4 things. 1. relax. i wasn't making fun of you. all i pointed out was i don't think its a pun. sorry 2. the highest english class i've ever been in was AP English in 11th grade. (Seminar in 9th but AP was college credits.) final avg was a 92. 3. You havn't read all my posts, i don't normally comment in the closers thread because all it is is stuff like this, arguing, crap no one wants to read, and once in a while something useful. I have posted 3 times in it, your one post putting me down is longer than both. 4. Whats wrong with smoking bongs? and Phish for that matter. its better than country music and squirrel hunting.
i will go back to only reading this thread.
