He's going to be shaky as long as he has the job. A few terrible performances and he is likely to lose the position.


"A few terrible performances" doesnt look likely anytime soon. I guess the 0.00 ERA and perfect 7/7 save record this season have gone unnoticed.


Not unnoticed, but definitely unlikely to continue. While he's not a top 20 closer, I agree with y'all that he should not be shaky at this point.

Here's my take on the situation . . .

1. Last year Capps missed 2 months with "arm soreness".

2.Grabow picked up 4 saves last year . . .

Recommendation . . .

1. Pick up Grabow if you're desperate for saves and holding on to a "potential" closer such as Chris Perez or Manny Corpas

2. Pick up Grabow if you own Matt Capps.

3. Don't make a panic move and rush out to grab Grabow for somebody else who could help your team . . .
I'm Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!!!

Dont start this again. One person thought it would be Downs and one thought it wouldn't. BIG DEAL. Move on.

Lol, I know it wasn't me, but my point was that Downs >>>> Ryan. No reason to switch back.

I think most fantasy players worth their salt knew it would be Downs over Accardo going into this year

Yes it was sooooooo obvious that Havok had Accardo 2nd in line as well. Hindsight is 20/20 even for Id*o*s though.

By the way, it takes a real POS after someone says ok I give up this argument, to keep bragging every freakin time someone brings up Downs. Could you find some sort of real accomplishment to hang your hat on dude?

If you can't take a small bit of razzing, maybe you shouldn't post on message boards

The dude makes a smart comment every time the word Downs, Down or Up is mentioned. I can take it but apparently I am not allowed to give anything back. And I'll say it one last time, I never said it wasn't Downs, just that his reasons for calling it Downs were weak (including incorrect stats). Like I said, get a life and maybe he will have something more important to be so proud about.
