ya really, joba is more of an 8th inning guy than a closer.

That would be such a waste of resources. Joba is extremely impressive as a SP. Remember he's only made a handful of major league starts, and seems to have the temperament of an old pro.

his ERA as a reliever is exactly half of his ERA as a starter, that means he's twice as good as a reliever.

That is about as good as comparing mile splits of a marathon runner to times in a one mile race.

Who's calling who Captain Small Sample? A handful of starts and you're ready to anoint him "an old pro"?

Andrew Bailey pitches two innings tonight for his first Major League save. 2 innings, 2 K. Looked very good tonight.

At no point was Ziegler warming up in the bullpen.

Kip Wells also got his first Major League save tonight. Looks like he is the guy in Washington...for now. :-b

I'm curious about the OAK situation.

Is Ziegler still trying to catch up from his sickness or something?

I know they like Bailey & he's pitched extremely well so I guess it's worth monitoring.
